It’s been gray and raining for the past couple of days, but today the sunshine came out. So I thought I would share a little sunshine on a card.
Easter is only 9 days away, so it’s time to get to making those cards and getting them in the mail. I love bright, sunshiny colors….in fact when I was many years younger and we moved into a new house my parents let me pick the color of my room. I choose a bright yellow….I loved it, it was like living in sunshine all year round.
And isn’t that duckie just the cutest thing? If you are thinking that this card design looks familiar then you might have read this blog post from a few weeks ago. You can see that card here: Taking Care of Business & a Challenge!
For this card, I used the Welcome Easter Stamp Set and stamped the duck image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him with Daffodil Delight Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends. I used a Pumpkin Pie Light Stampin’ Blend for his beak, feet and little comb on his head. Then all you need to do is add a little background, a bit of ribbon, pop on your Easter message and you are all finished.
If you would like to make this card, this is what you will need:
- Welcome Easter Stamp Set
- Layering Circles Dies
- Ornate Frames Dies (optional) for the sentiment label
- Daffodil Delight Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”; Score and fold at 4 1/4”, plus a scrap for the scalloped circle
- Whisper White Cardstock – Embossed with Polka Dots (non- SU), plus a scrap for the sentiment label (or cut a piece 2 3/4” x 7/8”)
- Best Dressed Designer Series Paper – Cut a piece 5 1/4” x 1”; a piece 2 1/2” x 6” , a strip 1/4” x 4” and a scrap for sentiment label mat (or cut a piece 3” x 1 1/8”)
- 1/4” Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon (retired)
- Daffodil Delight Ink
- Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight Light & Dark and Pumpkin Pie Light
- Adhesive: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots
And don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card and your envelope!
The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper comes in a package of 48 6” x 6” Double sided designs. Which means you have enough in one 6” x 6” sheet to cut the pieces for this card and have a piece to decorate your envelope
Making cards is a perfect excuse to stay home and self isolate. Stay healthy!
