How to make a Layered Easter Card

Easter is just around the corner, so I thought I would share, How to make a Layered Easter Card. Since I’m on the Fantabulous Circut Challenge Blog I’ve even thrown in a Cricut Cut too.

How to make a Layered Easter Card

Challenge #298-Easter

Make a project about Easter.

This Weeks Sponsor

And the prize is-

When I first got my Cricut I wasn’t sure how to use the device. I would have lots of trial and error trying to figure out how to cut using those dials and the keypad on the machine. Now that I have a newer machine the Cricut Explore Air I love using it almost daily.

Now that I have Cricut Design Space it allows me the ability to customize images to my needs. For today’s project, I pulled the Egg Flourish from the Gypsy Font cartridge into Design Space.

Once I had the image in Design space I then spent a few minutes removing the Egg as I didn’t want that part of the cut I wanted the mat. I then sized the cut to fit on a A2 greeting card and cut on two different shades of purple cardstock.

Using my  Vagabond I made a sandwich with the Darice Embossing Folder, 4.25 by 5.75-Inch, Brick Wall and the light purple cardstock. I also made a sandwich with the CUTTLEBUG 5X7 EMBOSS-OXFORD Embossing Folder and white cardstock.

On both of the newly textured papers I used the Ranger blending tool and Brutus Monroe Aubergine ink to bring out the texture.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Pearl was sprayed over both of the textured pieces. Set aside to dry. (Tip store your Glimmer Mist on it’s side and then it is easier to shake the glimmer into the liquid)

Print the Calico Collage Victorian Easter Digital Download – FREE and cut out the large rabbit image, mat with white cardstock. Next layer on the purple mat.

Stamp the Brutus Monroe Easter Blessings on a scrap of white cardstock and punch with one inch punch. Punch a 1.25 of purple to mat.

Select the round bunny image from the Calico Collage Victorian Easter Digital Download – FREE, punch a purple mat using the 1.5 punch.

Use Aleene’s Tacky Glue to adhere the purple mat with the large bunny image to the White basket weave card topper.

Wrap PURPLE 1mm Bugtail Satin Cord Shamballa Macrame Beading Nylon Kumihimo String (210ft Spool) around the lower portion of the card. Adhere to A2 card.

Adhere Circle Bunny and Easter Blessings using Pop Dots. Add a bow and place the Stick On Pearls around the edge of the purple mat.

Embossing 52 Christmas Card Thowdown Challenge

Today’s post is Embossing 52 Christmas Card Thowdown Challenge. This challenge comes from the blog 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. The challenge this week is Embossing – dry or heat.

Embossing 52 Christmas Card Thowdown Challenge

For this project I decided to use a Snow flake stamp from PSX E-1953 as the focal image. The Merry Merry Christmas stamp is from Annette Allen Watkins C628. Embossing folders were used to give texture to the paper, these were from Cuttlebug and The Paper Studio. The silver and the holographic embossing powder are from Ranger. Used versaMark stamp pad as my embossing ink. Stickles are a great way to add glitter dots and that is what I used on the Holly Leaves on the embossed paper. It was an accident that I found the crystal snowflake charms at Hobby Lobby – Christmas by Bead Treasures. I got a ton for less than $6.00. I’ll have these snowflakes for years, or until I get on the 52 Christmas Card Thowdown design team. lol

Walking down the craft paint isle gets me into trouble. I usually try to avoid that isle because if the paint is on sale I will load up on way too many! How can you resist this paint? It’s usually less than a $1.00 and these come in so many colors! For this card I used Americana Holly Green craft paint. It was the perfect color for the holly leaves.

The top note die from StampinUp! was used for one of the layers. I really like this die and have used it a lot in the years that I have had it in my stash of tools.  I’m so thankful that I found the Tim Holtz Vagabond machine on clearance at JoAnn’s a couple of weeks ago. This machine is getting a workout and was well worth the $90 I spent!

What I like about this card is that the top blue layer could be made over and over and used as a ATC or a gift tag.

There is a video of the card making below:
