Easter Cards

Easter greetings from Adrienne at Eagle Canyon Arts.  Thanks to Sheila for my continued participation on this talented Sassy design team.

This year it was fun using the CTMH Artfully Sent cartridge (Z3017) to create this cute pop-up Bunny card for our grandchildren.  Using 12"x24" Cricut cardstock in pastel colors with the 12"x24" cutting pad helped make it easy to cut out 3 cards at once.
Selecting the papers is always a challenge for me - so many choices!
I used the bone folder - sort of - then found "eyeballing it" worked better on this project with two layers of paper.
Cotton Candy ink (Z2193) daubed on the edges of the bunnies and bitty glitters on the eyes completed the look.  A simple card and the children enjoyed it. 

For the grown ups, I created a more seriously themed card, using a brand new CTMH paper collection called "Blossom" (X7196B).
"His Love" stamp (B1469), Lagoon (Z2195), Sweet Leaf (Z2153), Sunset (Z2191) and New England Ivy (Z2135) inks, with Junebug Puffies (Z3038) for accents.  The lily was colored with Shin Han markers Golden Yellow - Y222 (Z2452) and Leaf Green - GY234 (Z2454).  

The scripture inside is John 3:16.  He Is Risen, Indeed. 

Blessings to all for a sacred and peaceful Easter season.

Cute cards. I know what you mean about paper selecting taking so much time. Took me less than 10 minutes to do all my cutting for a card, but over a half hour just to pick out the papers.
