Blogging is definitely taking a back seat to work these days.
But, I was able to make a few Easter cards last night and send them off in the mail today. My favorite was the Easter Chick card I made for Natalie. I plan to make a more “masculine” version tonight for Nick.
The cards were really quite simple (even the “egg” chick). It’s all a matter of layering materials … decorative papers, ribbons, paper punch outs, stickers, and rhinestones.
- Card stock greeting cards (sold at all craft stores, in a variety of colors and sizes)
- Decorative scrapbook papers
- Coordinating ribbons
- Rubber stamps, ink, punches
- Stickers, rhinestones, buttons and other embellishments
- Scissors, paper cutter, glue
Here’s a few pictures of the materials….
As I have mentioned before, I buy scrapbook paper when it’s on sale at the local craft stores. I was able to find the butterfly and cupcake stickers on sale for 47 cents at our local Michael’s (3 weeks ago)!
I have quite a few paper punches, but for greeting cards, I tend to use my circle and scalloped circle punches most often. They make great backgrounds for stickers and other embellishments.
