Simple to Make Easter Cards

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.

The front of the envelopes (jelly bean stickers courtesy of Mrs. Grossman).  From Paper Source:  Envelopes A7 in Strawberry and Lake, oval labels in curry and chartreuse.

The front of Elizabeth's card:  

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):

Stamped "Happy Easter" with acrylic stamp letters and heat embossed.

Ashley's card, which was done the same way:

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