I have some Easter cards to share today. I got a few made and sent out before Easter. I hope you all had a great Easter, we did here.
My first card I saw on Pinterest, I didn't have the dies they used, so I went to my Cricut Machine and Design Space to get my cuts of a cross and palm leaves. The oval and sentiment strip are from dies I have. Hard to see, but I also used an embossing folder for the background mat. I cut many crosses, stacking about three on top of each other and then placing the wood grain paper cross on top. Inked my palm leaves with DOI's. I am pleased with how this card came out, similar to the one on Pinterest, but different a bit too.
I used my left one of the over die cut piece to stencil a palm leaf inside my card.
Same with this card, saw it on Pinterest. Same as the first card, I didn't have any bunny dies, so went to my Cricut and Design Space to do some print and cut bunnies. Couldn't find any pattern paper to use, so thus why I picked some patterns and did the print and cut. I need to calibrate my machine though! Die cut my squares, placing my bunnies on them. Added some sequins, don't think the one on Pinterest had sequins. So again, similar, but different.
This card uses snippets and a little washi flower die cut that a sweet friend sent me a bunch of. Thank you sweet friend, you know who you are! Simple, layered, but sweet I thought. I followed a sketch from Cardz TV.
Another sweet friend sent me this little bunny, two of them actually. Thank you sweet friend, you know who you are too! I used all snippets on this one too as well as following another Cardz TV sketch. The purple piece is an alcohol piece I found in my background stash. The wreath was cut using a friend's SU die and I used Brusho's on it. I did many of the wreaths that day we got together, which was quite a while ago! So I just have them in my bits and bob box to use.
The sweet friend who gave me the sweet bunnies, also gave me the piece of wood that I've hoarded for quite a while. But figured it wasn't doing anyone any good by keeping it in my stash and so I finally used it. I have a tiny square piece left to use yet. Again, thank you sweet friend....you know who you are.
And that is it! Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me a spell, I know it is busy for everyone. Mowing is keeping me busy as well, although I wish the weather would just stay warm. The next three days is supposed to feel like winter with some areas higher up maybe seeing some snow. We will see rain with maybe a snowflake or two...what's new there?!What the heck, it is almost May?!!! Anyway, your comments always bring sunshine and joy to my days and I thank you for taking the time to leave one. If I haven't been by to see you, I will be soon.
