Easter Note Cards

It's time to make Easter cards for the shut ins at church.  Of course I'm going to my favorite Easter stamps from the Occasions catalog, Basket Bunch and the coordinating Basket Builder Framelit dies.  I'm using the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes.  They are such a bargain at 20 cards and envelopes for $6.  Here is the card.

Shut in Easter Cards

  • Start with the strips of designer paper.  I used Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper and Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper.  I did run out of the turquoise paper part way through and substituted the Temping Turquoise paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  The first two strips are 1/2 inch by 5.  The last strip is 3/4 inch by 5.  Use your grid paper to help you get the first strip on straight and then just butt each piece against each other.
  • The detailed basket and handle are cut with the Basket Builders dies in Tip Top Taupe.  There is another solid basket but from Early Espresso.  It goes under the detailed basket.
  • Cut the detailed eggs from Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry.  Glue all to the card.
  • The sentiment is from the Basket Bunch stamp set.  Stamp in Melon Mambo on a 1/2 inch wide scrap of Whisper White.  Notch the ends and glue it on.

Easter 3

I made about 30 of these.  There was a lot of cutting, but I think they will be enjoyed. I like to think about each person getting fun mail to open.  I get as much joy as they do!  I love to hear that some save all my cards and look at them from time to time.

Easter will be here before you know it!  Get started on those cards!  A product list follows.  Just click to go to my online store!
