Happy Easter to you and your family!
I hope you are enjoying a special day with your family! I love Easter. It’s my second favorite holiday to Thanksgiving. Easter brings so much hope.
Living in the Northeast, we are starting to see buds on the trees, hastas pocking through the ground, rain that just smells of grass and not snow, and those blessed birds that have returned and with them their beautiful music in the morning. Can you believe it’s supposed to get to the 80s today!!!
For my card today, of course I had to make an Easter card filled with bright colors
My card base is Mint Macaron cardstock (which, can we just pause for a second and say how much I am going to miss this color!!! There’s none like it in the Stampin’ Up! colors and I am almost in mourning over it’s retirement.) Moving on – I took a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and dry embossed it with the Petal Burst embossing folder and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock before adhering it to the card.
Next I stamped my sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on some Whisper White cardstock. Using the Layering Ovals Framelits, I cut the sentiment out and another scalloped oval (a smidge bigger) to mat behind it.
Lastly, I stamped and cut out my flowers and leaves using the Falling Flowers Bundle. I stamped each image in the same color as the cardstock (i.e., Flirty Flamingo ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock) and cut them out with the coordinating framelits and adhered them around the sentiment.
Enjoy and Happy Easter!
Today’s card was inspired by the challenge at Color Throwdown this week.
