Easter Flowers

Good morning! I have an Easter card to share today. I don't really have too many easter sets, if any, so I like to use flower sets for the couple of easter cards I make. Today's card is bright and cheery, perfect for Easter and perfect to get you in spring mode. I am so ready for spring/summer. I have had enough of winter and cold weather. For today's card I knew I wanted to use the mason jar from Perfectly Preserved as a vase for flowers. I decided to use the flowers from Fabulous Florets. I stamped everything (flowers and mason jar) onto watercolor paper. I like the not completely filled in look that it gave the flowers because then I was able to go back in with my markers and add a little bit of shading for dimension. Then I pulled out the hardly used Natural Compositions DSP for the background. I bought this paper on my first order from the new catalog and hardly used it. I have no idea why because I love this embossed flower paper that comes in it. I also stamped the "Happy Easter" on this paper as well. For the bottom half I embossed some Lucky Limeade with the Vine Street embossing folder from SAB. I then added some Daffodil Delight seam binding and some pearls to finish the card. Thanks for looking!

  1. Jen, I love this! I haven't used my Fabulous Florets in way over a year now and I might have to pull it out to do something like this! Gorgeous card. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Good luck with the tantrums. I guess we will survive them. lol
