I created this Easter card using two Elizabeth Craft dies, some Core'dinations cardstock and Pebbles Inc's "Garden Party". It's festive, interactive and fully loaded with Spring goodness! And all of it can be found at Scrapdoodles! The Pebbles line is new to the store and is sure to fly off the shelves as it's just perfect for all things Spring!
The die that was used to create the card base is a single piece of
the accordian that one cuts with repetition. I have a tri-fold card here
and thus cut three 'bases"; one in yellow, light blue and then pink.
There are fancier dies that you can buy to overlay the base but I went
with just trimming down a fourth cut from cardstock and trimming it down
for the middle panel. The store carries the overlays, be sure to check them out! The base die also comes in other fun shapes which you can also find at the store.
The third panel is a bit of an Easter egg montage with the Peep
bunnies, flowers and oval layers. All wrapped up nicely with a bow!
The folds and joins go together very nicely, especially if you use a
liquid glue. I made another of these for Core'dinations as home decor
that you will see at a future date that I put together with two types of
roller application adhesive; they didn't stick as well. I had to go
back and apply liquid adhesive. Once you do, there is a nice strong bond
that creates a fun interactive and dimenstional card that the whole
family is sure to enjoy!
Oh! I almost forgot! You cannot see it and try as I did, I couldn't capture it on film but I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the "Happy Easter" which I stamped. It adds a subtle yet festive holiday "finish" to the sentiment. Be sure to grab one of those for all your final finishing touches!
