Easter Parade of Cards

Easter will soon be here and I can show you the first round of cards that have been mailed and received by family and friends.  They'll be a few more cards but I can't show those until Easter Sunday. 

The first card is for my dear BFF, her husband and three girls.  I chose to make 3 bunnies to represent each girl.  I used "fun flock" for the first time and it was easy and fun! I chose a green paper from DCWV shimmer stack as the card base.  I layered the words "Joyeuses Paques" with a DCWV glitter stack, added some ribbon, grommets and then a sentiment inside the card with a decorated egg.

The next card is for my brother and his family.  For this card, I braided some ribbon, ran the layer of blue paper through my Big Shot using the Cuttlebug polka dot folder, added a few flower brads and then made the basket, grass and eggs with my Cricut.  I weaved paper strips through the basket, just as we did in primary school :)!

The next card is for my eldest sister and her family.  I chose a purple paper from DCWV shimmer stack as the card base.  I layered the rabbit with purple paper and DCWV glitter stack.  I added some ribbon, a corsage pin that I embellished with beads and then carried some of the same paper inside for the sentiment which is printed on vellum.

And finally the last card is for my other sister.  I used again DCWV shimmer paper and cut the shape from the Wild Card cartridge.  All shapes were cut from a cricut cartridge.  I stamped the word Easter on the front using Tim Holtz distressed ink and added a few daisies and yellow ribbon for embellishment.

Check back in on Sunday to see the final Easter cards and then maybe you can tell me which one you like best.
