Easter Parade - Final Cards

Happy Easter!  Hope you're enjoying this time with your family and friends. 

First off, I'm showing a couple of mailboxes that I decorated from my two children.  They're too old for an Easter hunt but still enjoy receiving some candy and chocolate.  The mailboxes were purchased at Walmart and I simply decorated them with paper, personalized them and made a few cut-outs for the flag.

Here is the card that I made for my dear husband.  It is a fold card that stands up on its own.  I simply designed the rabbit using the Gypsy and welded a rectangle for the base. I used some "fun flock" in light green for the accent, cut the grass from A Child's Year cartridge and tied a ribbon at the neck.

The next shape card was for my parents and I simply welded the shape together.  I cut out the relevant layers in DCWV glitter and shimmer paper. I printed the Happy Easter on vellum and attached it with a purple button brad.  

The next card was given to my dear daughter.  I had tried the Smooch Spritz for the background layer, cut the chickadee and musical notes from a Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and added some ribbon for embellishment.  The card base was an ivory embossed paper from a stock that I had on hand.

Finally, here is the card for my son.  I used the Stretch your Imagination cartridge for the rabbit and egg shapes using different colours of paper and outlining the entire shape in a silver DCWV shimmer paper. 

I also suggest that you l look at the previous post and let me know which is your favorite Easter card.

  1. These cards are all great! So much creativity to not be at all repetitive. It's too hard to pick a favourite! I think my top 3, in no particular order haha, are the singing chick, the egg tower and the braided basket handle!

    Great job, I'm sure everyone was really impressed with their cards!

    Happy Easter!
