April '14

Happy Easter Weekend!!
I hope everyone gets to enjoy the weather and time with their Families!!
Today we have two cards, one more spring and the second clean and simple Easter.
Here is your spring card... Woodgrain Embossing folder, Butterflies and pretty Strawberry Slush Ruffled Ribbon.  Note the folded front... this is a half gate card.  Leaving half of your inside card exposed.  A couple more butterflies carries on the theme..

Keeping the Rhinestones to one color highlights them...

Two layers of Ruffled ribbon adds a presence ..

As you can see the front is basically flat, so this too is mailable.

It is difficult to see but on the inside there are two butterflies, one is "dirtied" up with a sponge to help you see it... in this small version of the picture it is difficult to see... enlarge to see what I mean.


Here is our second card... using Watercolor Wonder DSP and colors from that to highlight and bring the two different patterns together.  Banner Framelits are used here.  Yes, I really do like them!!

The stamp set is called Eggstra Spectacular.
This is a coloring that I can do, but apparently I should have pulled out the blender pen to do a better job, haha
This also has a low profile for easy mailing.
I do love my dimensionals though.
Have a Happy Easter! Stop by for a super cute card tomorrow.
Have a Great day getting Crafty!!

  1. We made these in your class at the library. Found that half gate fold was pretty easy to do.
    I am loving the banner framelits too. They are so versatile. Thanks Jen for keeping it fresh for us. Always enjoy your blog posts.
