Vintage Easter Card

Hello everyone,

I would like to share with you an Easter card that I made for my next door neighbor:


For the first layer I used Pion Design paper from A Day in May collection (PD4404) and for the second layer I used Pion Design paper form Studio of Memories collection (PD1512)
Oh boy, was it hard to cut into those papers?!? They are just too pretty and precious!!!


I made the flowers from white cardstock and then painted them randomly with Antique Linen distress paint. The shabby bow was made using a chalk white seam binding ribbon.


The vintage Easter image was a free printable I found on Pinterest, but I altered the color finish and printed it in Sepia tones. Then I used Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance to die cut the image.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

  10. Samra, what a breath taking Easter card! Your papers, bow, flowers and lovely vintage image all just come together so perfectly! I have a hard time using my pretty papers, too! I have a bookshelf full of paper, and I never use it, just for that reason! This is why I can't have nice things! (Family joke!) I wish you a Happy Easter! Hugs! Sara Emily

  21. Well done for cutting into those gorgeous papers to make this beautiful card! I have been known to cut out the middle of lovely backing papers and just show the edges (I used to replace the middle with paper of a similar weight so that the middle didn't sag!) I love your flowers and the wonderful vintage image you found! Hugs, Chrisx

  22. Samra, this is extraordinarily beautiful.. just like everything from your crafty heart! The layers and elegance are stunning and there just are no words to express the magic in your flowers. :o) Gorgeous work! And thank you for the love on my Pion win! I hadn't been to the computer yet when you emailed me, so I found out from you! That made it extra fun. I am still a wee bit shocked. :o) Have a lovely day, Samra!

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen
