Easter Card #3


I need 11 Easter cards and this is my 3rd one. I think I better speed it up don't you?
I need to design a card that goes together quickly and make several of them.

Don't you just love that new Martha Stewart Picket Fence Punch? I sure do!!!
After leaving about 1 inch of plain paper underneath the fence, I stamped the flower border from Crafty Secrets Bird Lovers Stamp on the bottom. Before stamping, I colored the stamp with my Marvey Water Color Pencils. so I would get a two tone image.

The focal point is stamped from the new Inkadinkado Floral Flourishes stamp shown below and I cut the frame for the picture out of the Foliage Frame Nestie dies and laid the picture on top of it. I used Scor-It tape to attach the stamped image to the frame. I had planned to put the frame on top, but my flower was too large, so I used it as a border instead. You probably have heard the old saying "measure twice, cut once".....well I didn't do it that way. Therefore, I had to make a minor adjustment and it worked! Have you ever had to do that?

I love my new Rhinestones from Kaiser. This card called for glitz, so they were perfect.
