Happy Easter weekend! I have a card to share with you that is in the Spring 2015 issue of Craft Ideas magazine. Have you checked out Craft Ideas lately? I love the new, modern updated look and feel and appreciate all the step-out photos that are now included with many of the projects.
This was a fun card to make - and easy enough to create multiples if you work assembly line style. While you can find a detailed supply list and instructions HERE, I thought I would share a few photos to give you an idea of the process.
This card has a bit of dimension, but not so much that it would be difficult to mail.
The stamped tulip image was heat embossed on vellum.
And quickly colored with markers on the reverse side. Love this technique as it is so forgiving!
The colors are softened by the vellum, so use darker colors than you want on the finished card.
I love using a computer to generate the sentiment - especially if I don't have a stamp that fits. Creating your own sentiment also allows you to choose the fonts that fit the style of the card. The only tricky part is die-cutting it after printing. Creating a template out of printer paper makes it easy to position the die exactly where needed.
Thanks so much for visiting today. I wish you and your loved ones a very Happy Easter! Hope the bunny is good to you... those Reese's Peanut Butter eggs are my downfall, what's yours?
