Easter is just a few weeks away so I thought I'd share some cute handmade Easter cards I made for my grandchildren. All my cards were made using cute felt, foam, or stickers found in the seasonal aisle of any craft store.
I always search Pinterest for ideas before beginning a new project. All three of my cards were "cased" from another card, but they always turn out looking very different because I use different supplies and bring in some of own ideas. This first card was cased from THIS ONE.
To make this card, I first cut a 5x5 square out of a dark Kraft paper card stock. Then I cut smaller, scalloped squares out of a lighter Kraft paper, then I cut lavender squares; using a Cuttlebug machine and Spellbinder's Nestabilities. After all the squares were glued together, I just glued on all my pretty felt stickers. The sentiment and little chick were stamped on a separate piece of white card stock, colored in, cut out, and glued to the lavender square. Finally I added some sequins for more bling.
My next card is my favorite of the three. I just really love the CAS layout with the embossed white card stock background. I cased this card HERE.
This card was the easiest of the three, I simply glued all the felt stickers to the embossed white panel base, then added a sentiment banner and more sequins. I cut the banner using an MFT die, and then I stamped and colored in the sentiment right on the banner.
For my last card, I created a background by gluing an assortment of foam eggs onto Kraft paper. I got the idea from THIS CARD. I bordered the Kraft background with Robins Egg card stock. Next I added a scalloped oval and I glued a felt bunny to the oval adding sequins for embellishment.
The sentiment banner was cut with an MFT die and I stamped and colored in the sentiment directly onto the banner. For a final touch, I added a pink ribbon and felt flower.
I had so much fun making these cards, and I can't wait to give them to my grandchildren.
Next week I'll be back with a video showing you what I put into my grandchildren's Easter baskets this year. Last years video was such a huge hit, I decided to do another one this year. Apparently everyone is looking for ideas of what to put in their children's baskets.
Have A Great Day! Amy
