Easter Cards - Part 1

Hi all, I hope that the week has been going well.  I finally got to some crafting last night and made my first of several Easter cards that I will be making this year.  I love this time of year because it means that everything is in bloom and there are new beginnings.  This first card that I made really has all the bright colors that I love.

I base the color design around the ribbon.  I don't have any Easter stamps so I let the ribbon do the work for me.  Also all the paper used on this card was from my scrap bin.  I get excited anytime I don't have to use a brand-new piece of paper.

Card Recipe:

  • Card base is 5" x 5" white card stock
  • Scalloped matting is cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 4.75" 
  • I used the Cuttlebug polka-dot folder to emboss the mat
  • Bunny scene is from Kate's ABC's cut at 3"
I will be posting many more Easter/Spring cards as I get them finished.  I am entering this card in the weekly challenge over at My Craft Spot.  Thanks for stopping by, I am now off to get my hair done, yeah!!!!
