Having spent all day at a crafting workshop on Saturday I decided it would be mean to do any at all on Sunday. However, I went upstairs to print some bits and bobs and whilst I was there I thought, I’ll just cut a few more Easter cards. Do you ever do that? Think you’ll just do one more job so that you’ve made a start? Well after I had cut the base cards I thought I’ll just cut the card fronts…and emboss them.. and whilst the Big Shot is out I’ll cut the bunnies…and so it continued until, before I knew it all the cards were completed!! So here is my final batch of Easter cards for this year:
The advantage of making them all very similar is that you do get a production line going and it does mean that they get made more quickly.
For me, the disadvantage is that as these are all slightly different I still have that dilemma of who to give each card to. Although each one was made with a specific person in mind, as they were completed I started to change my mind.
Each card was cut from a regular A6 card using an egg shaped die, making sure that on the right-hand side a hinge was left. This is done by making sure the edge of the die is over the edge of the folded card and not inside it. Next, I used the same die to cut a complete egg shape out of pastel coloured card and then ran the cut shape through an embossing folder. I applied the strip of ribbon across the centre, folding it around the back and then adhered the whole thing to the base card. Then it was just a question of making a matching bow and adding flowers, punched leaves and a die cut bunny.
For this card I die cut some crosses and decorated with punched blossoms and gold glitter glue.
Thanks for buzzing by.
