Are you in shock? It’s me, I promise. I’ve been MIA lately but never too far from the craft room. I did some cleaning and reorganizing but I’ve kept a low profile because I didn’t have any paper crafts to share until tonight. I finally got back in the craft room to get re-energized and to remind myself how much I do enjoy making cards. I made this little Easter card using my new Fancy Frames cartridge that hubby got me this month just because. 🙂 I wonder if he was secretly trying to aid me in creating again. I still have so many other goodies to delve into from Christmas and my birthday but I decided to take it slow as I got reacquainted with my Cricut machine. The last time I used it was in December! Well, enough of me trying to explain where I’ve been and why I haven’t been on here lately. I don’t really know why myself, but I have missed blogging, crafting, and reaching out to all my blog pals!
This simple Easter card is A2 (4.25 inches by 5.5 inches). I used Design Studio to scale the light green Fancy Frames image to 4 inches by 5.25 inches. I cut the corresponding background mat in pink at the same size. The bunny rabbit is cut at 3.75 inches from Four Legged Friends. I used Stardust Stickles on its belly, a pom-pom for the tail, and squiggly eyes for some whimsy. Each carrot (front and inside of the card) is cut from Just Because Cards at 3 inches.
I stamped “for you” on the front carrot using Fiskars “All Year Greetings”. I love this little stamp! I added a small bow of twine to the carrot as if it was a gift from the bunny. 🙂 The Happy Easter stamp on the inside is from Stampabilities.
Most of the paper used is from Colorbök (I recently learned it’s pronounced as color book, not color bock! I love getting their solid colored cardstock pads at Wal-mart for $5. They cut cleanly and have a nice linen texture.
Thanks for checking out my wee little card. It’s simple, but I’m taking my journey back into paper crafting nice and slow! 😉
