An Easy Easter Card

Well, I can’t believe that Easter is already this weekend! I just feel like it is weeks early this year! I did make some cards for the holiday and thought that I’d share them with you. It might take me a few days to get them up here, so I'd better get started! Not that there are a lot of just takes me a lot of time to figure out how to get them on here!

This first card is one of my favorite ones! I was looking at Susie B's gallery and just fell in love with her cards…who wouldn’t?!? She uses the Cuttlebug in ways I could only dream of! She has a blog too with lots of tutorials! So be sure to check that out! Anyway, I got the idea for this card from her gallery and LOVE how it turned out! Swiss Dot just screams “Easter” to me! I think I used it on EVERY single Easter card I made!

I used Stampin UP! Sky Blue for the main card, then PTI white (if you haven't tried really need to - it ROCKS!) for the card front. The paper is from a DCWV Spring Stack from last year. I used my CB embossing folder, Swiss Dot, and my BELOVED Scor-Pal for the score lines. I LOVE this look - it just seems so clean! Of course, I also used scalloped oval nestabilities....I have the petite ones, but I'm not sure if I used the large or small for this one...sorry about that! And those cute little baubles!?! Those were shared/gifted to me by Heather! Heather -You Rock..or maybe I should say, You Bauble!! I haven't been brave enough to put them on a card yet....but I LOVE them in pictures! Oh and I almost forgot the MOST important part! I almost forgot that I stamped on this card! The stamp "happy Easter" is from the set called Limitless Labels from Paper Trey Ink. This set was a birthday gift from my friend Mary - Thank you Mary, I LOVE this set! I've used it for so many different occasions! So all-in-all, I think this is a pretty cute card for NO coloring and no ribbons.

Phew! Who knew I could write so much about one card!?! Well, if you do know me then you know I can talk a lot.....and I can type really that combined might be dangerous! I will try to get a couple more Easter cards posted before Easter! Oh, and don't mind my watermark! I haven't figured that out yet either!
