Card A Day Blog: Easter

Hi everyone, here is my latest entry for the Card A Day Blog. I saw this adorable little guy and thought he would look so cute on my card.

Here is how I made it.

  • 5.5 x 8.5" piece of white card stock for my card base.
  • 5.25 x 4" piece of patterned paper.
  • Medium blue card stock for die cut.
  • White card stock for digi stamp.
  • Digi stamp from, McMahon Five Designs.
  • Copic markers, R000, RV10, RV42, YG11, YG23, YG63.
  • Blue and white striped ribbon
  • Pink My Moments rose.
  • Spellbinder's die, Fleur De Lis Squares.
  • Easter Greetings stamp.
I first printed out my digistamp, and then colored it using the Copic markers mentioned above. I then cut out my frame for my image using the medium Fleur De Lis die from the medium blue card stock, the adhered the image to the die cut. I then adhered my patterned paper to my card base, and attached my framed image on that. I made a bow using my Bow Easy, and attached it just under my image. I decided I wanted a little something more added to the bow, so I attacked the pink rose to the middle of it. Since it's for Easter, I stamped the sentiment, Easter Greetings with pink ink, on a piece of white card stock, cut it to size, and inked around the edges with blue ink and a dauber. I then attached the sentiment just under the bow.

I hope you like my little piglet Easter card. I sure enjoyed making it. If you would like to let me know what you think, please leave me a comment. I would surely appreciate it.
