Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Back today with the third card from the So Very Vellum Designer Series paper … Our last vellum color is “Purple Posy”. This is really pretty vellum and it’s perfect for an Easter card which I made for you today.
I am also featuring the March 2020 Paper Pumpkin as well. There are so many fun and pretty elements in this kit that the ideas were just coming to me. I have yet another set of boots, and I picked some pretty flowers from the elements to place into them …
I could not resist adding these two together. I took the Purple Posy ink and put a bit on the tip of a Q-Tip and added some color over the flower on the right to match up with the Purple Posy Vellum better. It was close, but now it really coordinates nicely.
The Oval background was cut with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. This really creates a focal point to the card. I added the “Easter Blessings” greeting which comes from teh Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It was stamped on a scrap piece of paper and then I simply cut it to create a banner.
The banner draws your eye away from the focal point and right to our cute little bunny. The bunny was also an element from the kit. I added a touch of the Wink of Stella to our bunnies ears and to the flowers. It doesn’t really show on the picture but it will raise an eyebrow of the recipient of this card!
Since we are abiding by the “stay at home” / “shelter in place” orders and practicing social distancing if we have to go out … Lets have some fun and get to know each other a little better!! Lets take a break from what’s going on in the world and make a card or two. First of all, crafting is know to reduce stress levels, and I’d like to see what you’ve been up to, so send me your card and I’ll post it on this blog!! Share a little info about the card and maybe about yourself. Then …
