Oh No! I Need Eight Easter Cards By Noon!

Good morning. Let me share I was in such a tizzy yesterday as I had only 3 hours to make, run to the bank for cash to stuff and adress to make the noon drop at the post office! You see I wasn't prpared as I got stuck in Chicago last week and lost my craft day! So this is what I did. I went to Google images and chose a couple of Happy Easter images and sized them to fit 4 up on a sheet of standard cardstock. I ran out 2 of them and the trimmed to fit.

I then cut 4 sheets of 8 1/2x11 sheets of paper and scored them to make a standard A2 card. I grabbed my scraps and trimmed to fit 4x5 1/4 to offset the artwork. The above image I sized incorrectly so I just ran a line of ATG and placed little flowers on top.... turned out cute and my little Carissa will love it.

After I got all the fronts put together I typed the sentement and ran that out... All it said was...
Happy Easter
I hope you have a Hoppy Good Day!
Again I made that 4 up on an 8 1/2x11 sheet of cardstock cut and trimmed to fit on the inside. I signed each one, stuffed with a little cash and then addressed the envelope for each child. Boy was I thankful that I had a return address stamp! LOL

I made it just in time and it went out in the mail and will reach Chicago in time for Easter! Sometimes you just have to do quick and this worked great.
