Easter Cards

Before we left for a few days of camping
(and before our snow returned to Wisconsin!)
I had a chance to make a few special
Easter Cards.

I really like the effect of embossing twice in two different colors
 and then cutting and piecing areas back onto the first.

This one I used an Anna Griffin floral die
and Memory Box Phlox.
I used chalks to color the Anna floral die cut.
One more card cutting out a shape of embossed cardstock
and raising it with another
design die underneath the window.
I recycled that pretty flower sticker from
a discarded name tag!  Too pretty to throw away!
All of these were new techniques for me and
I have to say I like them!
Thanks for stopping by....

This is what we woke up to Monday morning!
Hope it's nicer where you are!


  1. I can't even imagine having snow in the middle of April! It has been in the seventies here this week and on Monday, I turned on the sprinkler for the kids for the first time this year. But it is spring in the northwest so the rain is returning tonight. I think your cards turned out wonderfully. The two tone embossing is so elegant and eye catching and I love the vine cross stamp. I need to make a card with that stamp before Easter passes us by.

  2. Linda, your Easter cards are absolutely amazing!! Such beautiful designs and lovely colors. I'm sure your recipients adored these!

  3. Oh my goodness, Linda--I never thought of doing this technique & I LOVE it! Gorgeous cards! Thanks for the inspiration!
