Simple to Make Easter Cards

DSC_3734
Storm clouds from Saturday.

Working on getting back into the groove of blogging, but probably won't be until May that regular posts will appear again.  Doing the best I can with the time constraints I have in my life at the moment.  Spending a lot of time these days brainstorming about making the blog better, which is something I have really struggled with.

Over the weekend, I made some cards to send to my nieces with a couple of little gifts for their Easter baskets.  The packages go in the mail today, and since my sister isn't a daily reader, she probably won't see this until the packages arrive in the mail.

From Paper Source:  

  • A7 foldover card in blush (discontinued), 
  • oval labels in chartreuse, fuchsia, pool, and curry (to make up the eggs), 
  • stickles (glitter glue)
  • rhinestones 
  • glue dots covered with glitter  
  • For the grass, I used Martha Stewart's fringe scissors
  • Chicken and egg stamp  (I stamped it in black ink, heat embossed it, colored it in with magic markers, cut it out and placed a piece of foam tape behind it on the grass
  • Envelope liner a piece of flat paper

The inside of the card (forgot to photograph it before I wrote my personal message on it):

I had a great time making the cards and I hope the girls enjoy them.
