Easter Card

Sometimes I create something and don't like it.  (Refer back to my WHERE'S MY MOJO? Post!).  Sometimes things just don't seem to come together.  I made this card and didn't love it...but the more that I look at it now I think it's really sort of cute! I am patting myself on my back saying "Great job, Susan!"  OK, not really but it is actually a cute design I think.
This happens to me on occasion...I'll make something and think it's awful...put it down...come back the next day and have a totally different outlook!
So here is a simple Easter card:

I used We R Memory Makers printed papers and Core'dinations Cardstock which is some of my favorite cardstock.  I used some ruffled American Crafts that stuff!
I cut the butterfly out with my Cricut...this image was cut from the Graphically Speaking cartridge....I think he looked really cute with some extra bling on him.  He's all dressed up in his Easter BEST!  I put a little foam tape under his body and slightly bended his wings so that it looks like he just alighted on the card. The scalloped ovals were cut with my Fiskars punches and inked to give them a little more pop.  The stamped sentiment is from Close to My Heart. I used the Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folder-Birds & Swirls which gave a wonderful embossed design on the cardstock.
I really like these colors and I love the layered Cricut butterfly.  I think it makes for a bright and fun Easter card!

  2. All of your cards are wonderful! I also like the ribbon you used on this card.

  3. I love this card! I see someone was the lucky recipient. Thanks so much for posting all of your supplies and techniques! It makes it easier to scraplift them. ;)

  4. Simple Easter card? It is an incredible Easter card! As I have said before, I know nothing about cardmaking and most of the time what you write is greek to me (for the longest time I thought some guy named Tim Holtz had died and could not figure out why you were going on and on about him) but I love your creations!
