Two Easter Cards

Can you believe we are thinking of Easter whilst were still vacuuming up the pine needles??
It is really early this year!

Here are a couple of cards made from Crimson Cloud’s Snowdrop Easter Egg and Sentiments Set. These show how you can create very different looks using the same stamps and dies.

If you would like to try them here is what you will need:

Crimson Cloud Snowdrop Egg Set

Spellbinders Grand Ovals

Staz-On Ink Pad Teal
White Embossing Powder
Foam Mount Pads or Strips
Double Sided Tape
Sticky Dots
Teal Card Stock
Purple Card Stock
White Card Stock
White Card Stock Glossy (optional)
Purple and White Ribbon

To make the Teal Coloured Plain Egg Card:

Cut out the smallest Grand Oval from the white card stock, I used glossy but normal smooth finish will do.

Stamp the Snowdrop Egg with Teal Staz-On.

Cut the teal card stock to 26.5cm x 15.5cm and fold in half

Open the card stock again and centre number 2 and 3 of the Grand Ovals over one half.
This will give you the aperture and 2 frames.

Cut out the number 3 size die in the same white card stock of Grand Decorative Ovals and centre the largest ‘frame’

Align them through the aperture and glue in place.

Mount the white stamped oval with the frame on top, to the Fancy Oval. When you close the card now you should not be able to see the fancy inside.

Cut some white card stock strips to 1 cm wide and create your bow fixing with a little double sided tape. I used a small square punch to cut the ends but you can also use scissors.

To make the Purple Coloured  Fancy Egg Card:

Cut out No:1 Grand Ovals and stamp and emboss the Crimson Cloud Snowdrop Egg with Versamark and emboss with white embossing powder.

Cut out the white frame using Nos: 1 & 2 of Grand Decorative Ovals and fix the frame to the stamped oval.

Cut out No:2 Decorative Ovals in both Purple and White.

Fold and score the white one into three to create your easel panel.

Fix one third to the top of the purple Decorative Oval and one third to the bottom of the ‘framed’ oval - so that it forms a zig zag.

Stamp your sentiment from Crimson Cloud Snowdrops and Sunshine Sentiments Set onto a favourite fancy tag and fix it with a foam pad so that it holds your card in place when you stand it up.

Cut 3 pieces of purple ribbon into 6cm lengths and 3 of the white ribbon into 6cm lengths.
Cut another strip of both colours to 16cm.

Tie the larger strips into a loose knot and tuck the little ‘bunch’ of ribbons inside. Pull both ends of the larger ribbons tightly to secure.

Secure the ribbon to your card with sticky dots. Alternately,  use a glue gun if you have one.

There you are two of your Easter Cards ready to go!
Hope you enjoy them.
