Today I made an Easter card. I'm so happy with the way it turned out that I am already starting a second one. I have been going through my Mother's storage unit and trying to organize her collections to help her sell them and came across a ton of quilting books. It makes me realize I need to craft as much as I can and make it a priority so my stuff doesn't end up in a storage shed one day. Anyway I had quilting on the brain so I went to work. I wanted to use scraps so I grabbed my scrap box and picked out some bright paper. The picture does not show just how pretty the bright pink is. The pic makes it look almost coral since I have no sunlight in my room today.
I used my Creative Memories Fancy Square Maker to punch out the 12- 1 1/8" squares.I aligned the squares and glued them down on the blue cardstock which I cut at 3.75" x 5". I then used my Cuttlebug to emboss it with a folder from the Retro Kitchen set. I chose it because looks like it has stitching. I am really happy with how it looks.
I got the bunny from my Cricut Easter 2010 cartridge nd popped him up. It's the same bunny cut I used for my farm card in a box. I just love him! I handcut a banner and stamped it with a Studio G stamp and added the cute little buttons I got from Joanns.
For the inside I used my Fiskars corner punch for the tulips and used the pretty bright pink cardstock. This was quick and simple to put together and I am going to try some variations in the design with my next quilting cards.
