March has simply flown by for me, and before we know it Easter is upon us so I thought I would share with you all how to make a handmade Easter card. This card only took about 30 minutes to make, so you still have plenty of time before next Sunday to make a few.
Hello and welcome to the March Blog Hop by the Stamptastic Friends, an amazing group of Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who want to share their creations with you all, this month with a theme of ‘Easter/Spring’.
Whether you have come straight here to me, or hopped from somewhere else, be sure to hop on over to the rest of the team to see some fabulous makes.
The colours for my project today are inspired by a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator who’s class I am part in this weekend – aren’t they fabulous together? Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana, so fresh and vibrant and perfect for spring. Now we just need some sunshine to go with it!
I have used the Arrange A Wreath bundle from Stampin’ Up!, one of my recent purchases which hasn’t been used all that much, so I thought it deserved an outing, especially as it has the cutest Easter eggs! I have combined it with possibly my favourite animal set right now, Springtime Joy, that rabbit is just adorable.
How to make a Handmade Easter Card
The wreath is inked in Granny Apple Green ink and stamped once in full strength onto a panel of Whisper White card and then twisted round slightly before stamping off, and has a die cut wreath stuck on top of it as well to give plenty of depth and dimension.
The rabbit is stamped in Memento and coloured in using the Stampin’ Blends, with just a little crumb cake round the edges and then the Colour Lifter to blend it into the white. For the Easter eggs I used my Stampin’ Write markers so that I could get the multi-coloured lines – this is such a great technique to use.
The sentiment is from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set, sadly this will be retiring very soon, and is perfect for Christmas, Easter and Valentines day, so if you don’t have it yet it would be a good one to add to your stash. I used two colours of twine, pink and white, and held the two strands together as I tied the bow to get a double bow with a bit more oomph…
I do hope that you like my little handmade Easter card, I love the fact that you can make the wreath the central focal point and then just add all the elements to it. I used some of the Artistry Blooms sequins just to give my project a little bit of bling.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope my card inspires you to get creative. Please do come back if you would like to purchase any of the supplies that I have used here today, but please do keep hopping first, to see what everyone else has in store for you, I am sure there are some beautiful projects for you to see.
