E. Marie here to share two versions of a card using the same style and images. Even though Easter has past, I wanted to share these cards because they could also be used for other occasions by changing the sentiment.
My favorite Easter candy is “Peeps” so this sweet Marshmallow Bunnies image was a must have. It comes as a two-sided stamp with the basic outline of this bunny in three sizes is on one side and the shaded version of all three sizes is on the other side.
The largest shaded image was stamped on four different designer papers, a little more shading added to the ears with markers, and cut out. I trimmed them to fit different directions in the windows of the Cloverleaf Frame stamped in black. The coordinating template was used to sponge Shabby Shutters Distress Ink in each window.
The “happy Easter” sentiment is from the Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet. It was stamped several times on the top and bottom of the card front, using Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. This was all layered on coordinating cardstock.
The second card uses the same style of card, along with the Marshmallow Bunnies and Cloverleaf Frame images but this time I created a shaker card.
I colored the bunny images with Copic Markers, cut them out, and fit them in the four windows. Mowed Lawn Distress Ink was sponged inside each section, using the coordinating template, and small black and pink pearls were added to the eyes and noses. A second Cloverleaf Frame was stamped and the inside of each section was cut out. After adding acetate to the back, this was layered over the original window, using dimensional tape, to create four little shaker windows with little green, glass beads inside.
The Happy Spring sentiment was stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and die cute with Spellbinders’ Ribbon Banners die. Mowed Lawn Distress Ink was sponged on before it was removed from the die and Picked Raspberry was sponged around the outer edges.
I can think of some fun ways to use these card besides for Easter/Spring. How would you use them?
