Hello my friends, and happy Monday! Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments on my cards for My Creative Time last week. I had so much fun playing along with the MCT team for their 41st Edition Release week, and appreciated each and every visit from you. This week, the Authentique team is hopping with our friends at Petaloo, sharing Easter projects featuring the adorable Treasure collection and Petaloo flowers, notions, and trim. I am first up today with a set of quick and easy Easter cards.
One great thing about card sets is how time saving they are. Once you figure out your design, the cards come together really quickly. I started with a simple base of patterned paper, with a strip added to the left hand side. Using the same design for all really speeds up the process and keeps the set uniform, but changing up the papers makes each card unique.
The adorable 3×4 journaling cards from the Enhancements paper make wonderful sentiments and focal images for cards. And with their large size, you really don’t need much else. I added a variety of die cut tabs to the top of the Enhancements and layered them onto a mat of patterned paper. By matching the paper to the prints on the tabs, the two look like all one piece and give a really seamless flow.
To dress up my cards, I used Petaloo’s fabulous textured burlap flowers in ivory. A bit of dabbed paint coordinates the flowers to each card. I cut apart one of the green burlap flowers to create a pair of leaves for each one, too. Last touch was to add Petaloo trims in crochet lace and pom poms.
Be sure to stop by the Authentique blog this week for lots more Easter inspiration and project ideas. And leave a comment while you are there for your chance to win an Authentique/Petaloo prize package. Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!
