Easter Greetings

A full-on mash-up today.  With Easter around the corner, several challenges have adopted this Spring theme.  Okay, I will go along for the ride…

Tic Tac Toe (#155) – Embossing, Rabbit, Patterned Paper; Alphabet (Z) – Zig-Zags; Four Seasons (April) – Decorated Cookies; The Cookie Challenge (#167) – Decorated Cookies; Just Us Girls (#626) – Egg; and Stampin’ Up! Only (#298) – Critters.

Bringing it all together: Retro Rubber (#179) for the Colors (Yellow, Green and Orange) and Tuesday Morning (#650) for the Sketch.

Here is the result:

EASTER GREETINGS – TTTC155 – APLHABET APRIL – TFSC APRIL – CC167 – JUGS626 – SUOC298 – RRCB179 – TMS650

Steps:

  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Daffodil Delight cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (3¾” x 5″) Hand-made patterned paper (Toe) Basic White cardstock.
    • The Zig-Zag patterned Egg image from the retired Wagon Full of Fun stamp set (circa 2009) was stamped repeatedly with Smoky Slate ink to create a piece of patterned paper.
    • The Eggs were colored with the Light Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.
    • The outline and Egg shadows were colored with the retired Light Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend.
    • For a bit of texture, the panel was dry-embossed with the retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (Tic).
  • Cross Strip: (4” x 1¼”) Vellum
    • The sentiment, Easter Greetings, from the retired Fable Friends stamp set (circa 2019) was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Black Embossing Powder (Tic).
  • Square Panel: (2” x 2”) Granny Apple Green cardstock scrap dry-embossed with the Dots Embossing Folder (Tic).
  • Focal Image – Bunny: (1½” x 2”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Egg image previously used was inked along the edges only with the Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped.
    • The Bunny image (Tac) from the retired Eight Great Greetings stamp set (circa 2009) was stamped into the center of the Egg with the aid of the Stamp-a-ma-jig Positioning Tool.
    • The Bunny image was colored with Stampin’ Blends.  Additional colors: Petal Pink and Polished Pink.
    • The Bunny Egg was Fussy Cut with Paper Snips.

All of the elements were adhered to match the sketch.  The Bunny was popped up with Dimensionals.

A cute little Easter card.
