Colourful Easter Cards

Just three weeks until Easter and I made some Easter cards using a sheet of Sale-A-Bration Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper. You can earn this DSP for free with a qualifying order of £45/60€.

 I chose a 'dotty' pattern from the pack and used its colours of Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral and Whisper White for my card design. The image and sentiment are from the Hello Easter stamp set from page 39 of the Spring/Summer catalogue.
The cute bunny is stamped in Soft Suede onto Whisper White card and then punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, layered onto a colour coordinating 2" Circle and then layered onto a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle (I used a retired punch but the Layering Circles Framelits will work, too).

I punched a circle in every colour and size and layered them up by mixing & matching the colours!

The leaves are cut with the Petals & More Thinlits set in Lemon Lime Twist using the Big Shot and I added some tiny flower punchies (retired SU punch) and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in each centre for a bit of sparkle.
Wrapping a piece of colour coordinating ribbon across your card not only adds dimension and an extra pop of colour, it also uses up leftover bits of ribbon!
I used the 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist, the 1/4" Double Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack, another item you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order!
Here is what you need to make the cards:
 Stamps: Hello Easter
Happy stamping!
