Easter

Is it too early to start thinking of Easter? What do you think? In Florida the flowers are blooming, the pollen is definitely in the air, which makes us feel like Spring is in the air and Easter is around the corner. For those who are still being hit by snow storms, it probably feels like Easter is a pipe dream. Either way, I hope you like this project. If you leave in the warm climate, start planning. If you live where it is still cold, use this idea to start dreaming of Spring. 

One of the good things about a card like this is that you can always change the sentiment phrase and use it for another occasion, like a birthday for instance.


Here is the list of material and directions you will need.
Brown cardstock for card
Embossed pink cardstock smaller than the brown paper.
Glue the ends of a brown see-through ribbon to the back of the pink paper, then paste the paper on the brown card. Add a bow to the ribbon.

Add a pink embellishment pearl to the bow.
Die-cut a butterfly from the brown paper and another one from a darker pink paper. Add glitter to the body or make the body out of a glittered cardstock. Glue the pink butterfly on top of the brown one. Using 3D glue dots, paste the butterfly to the embossed paper and fold up the wings of the top one.
 The next three pictures show the details inside the card.
The reason why we celebrate Easter.

Finish your card stamping a sentiment phrase on the front. Use dark brown ink. You can also use embossing ink, brown glitter and emboss it with a heating tool.
From now until Easter, I will be posting more cards and other projects. I hope you enjoy them. Soon we'll have our contest to give away an Easter card too.
