Artistic Easter

Hello Friends! I’m starting to make my Easter & Spring cards. We’ve had nice weather these past few days in St. Louis so I’m thrilled to be making some bright, cheery cards.

I made this card for two challenges. The first is a sketch on Paper Players (PP580). It’s such a fabulous sketch; take a look at the entrees for the many interpretations. Lots of great ideas on their site.

The second challenge is a color challenge on Color Throwdown. I thought these colors would make a great Easter card & obviously so did the Color Throwdown team based on their graphic. LOL.

I love a plaid or check for Easter cards & choose Pacific Point DSP for the main color. It’s blue & this shade of blue is one of my favorites.

I cut the large Artistic dies flower in Pumpkin Pie & mounted it on top of a strip of Granny Apple Green. My greeting was stamped in Pacific Point on Vellum card stock. Last, I added Blue Adhesive backed gems.

I hope you are inspired to make some Easter or Spring cards. Have a great Friday & weekend! Marilyn (aka MJ)

  1. I love how you stamped your sentiment on vellum to allow the intricate die cut layer to show through, and I too am mad for plaid 🙂 Thanks for playing along with us at the Paper Players!
