Easter Greetings

At SweetStamps blog today our theme is Easter.  Please join us for a chance to win $20.00 in FREE stamps by entering your Easter creation in our challenge.  If you enter using a SweetStamps stamp you will be entered twice in the drawing.




For this card I started with a 6x6 plaid paper from Authentiques Delightful collection.  I used the FD002 Fancy Die Oval from Nellie Snellen for the green frame.  This die set has 7 different dies, 3 of which have slits in them to add the flowers.  I used the largest oval to cut out the size oval I wanted, then used the next smaller size die with the slits to make it a frame.  The yellow flowers were die cut from the FD004 Lilly Shapes Fancy Die.  You form each flower by inserting 2 petals in each slot.  I used the next size oval to cut out the Cryogen White Sparkle card stock and stamped the 2018 Girl with Bunny from SweetStamps.com with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored her with Copic markers (Y23, YR21, YG03, YG11, R20, E000, E00, E31, E34 and e55).  I used the smallest oval in the set to cut out a piece of Cryogen White and stamped it with 992 Easter Greetings  from SweetStamps.com using Palm Grove Shades Dye ink and wove a piece of green ribbon thru the slots.  I layered this to a piece of yellow card stock and hand trimmed it than layered that to a piece of green card stock and trimmed.  The butterflies were die cut using the DFD008 Butterfly Double Fold Die from Nellen Snellen.  I cut 2 sets, one yellow and one green, then altered the colors before adhering the butterflies together.

Don't forget to join us next week when the challenge is Spotlight.
