Vintage Easter

I love vintage images and I think that is, in part, due to all the memories they evoke. I always remember the Easters’ of my childhood with fondness, partly because they were great family occasions but also because there was something special about the design of Easter eggs and their packaging. Which is why I find it quite odd that when I look at some vintage Easter images I find the animals can look quite fierce or deranged. Today however I have used the most fabulous image, one that I know would have had me mesmerised as a child. Take  look at the card I have created:

To me there is something magical about those eggs hanging down like little lanterns and that bunny is just the cutest little stallholder I ever did see. The image comes from the Gecko Galz Holiday Icons kit and I copied and pasted it on to some paper from the Kitchen Sink paper pack before printing it out.

The Egg Hunt image, which you will see me using a lot this Easter, is from the Easter Parade digital kit.  I created mats and layers from chocolate cardstock and a yellow check paper that is also from  Kitchen Sink.

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Wishing you a lovely weekend and thanks for buzzing by

  1. This is one of my favourite cards this Easter, like you, those eggs take me back to my childhood and that strange tasting chocolate. Lovely backing papers and even better spring flowers.

    • Thank you. They just don’t make eggs like they used to! I used to keep all the boxes and the coloured foils – the start of hoarding tendencies!!!xx

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
