This week at Global Design Project, we have a color challenge: Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie. The color combo made me think of Easter, and I was excited to use Blending Brushes to color Basic White Cardstock.  After admiring the colors, I used Painted Lavender Dies for cutting.

Colors of Easter


Next, I used the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut two rectangles from Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used the fifth smallest Deckled Circles Die to cut a hole in one, creating a stencil. Placing the stencil on top of the other rectangle, with the butterfly in the middle, I used a Blending Brush and Daffodil Delight Ink to color the circle. So, the Paper Butterfly was used as a stencil also.


After gluing the Painted Lavender die-cuts in place, I stamped “thinking of you this Easter” in Memento Black Ink. Then, I attached the layer with Dimensionals to Basic White Cardstock, cut with the Largest Deckled Rectangles Die, which had been embossed with a Basics 3D Embossing Folder. The card base is Thick Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


I added three Iridescent Rhinestones as a special touch, and my first Easter card was complete. This sentiment is in the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set, Heartfelt Hellos. Check it out in my Product List below. Plus, the Paper Butterfly Accents is my Host Code gift this month.
