Here We Go....

Hi guys...thanks for all your patience!! Are you ready to see some new designs? Here we go...


This card is my version of a gatefold card, using easter eggs for the flaps of the card. The stamped image of my new Easter chick (#A140 - Happy Days) and Easter eggs (#A141) holds the card shut. Here's a look at the card opened:



Stamps: #C138 (Little Garden) and #1210 (Happy Easter). To get a pattern for this card, click here.

Here's another idea for Easter using our next new stamp, #C139 (Easter Bunny), along with the Easter eggs and #B141 (Little Wagon, from our last release). To make this favor, cut a piece of cardstock to 3" x 4". Score at 1-1/2" and 2-1/2". Tape 3 lollipops together. Use a 1/8" hole punch and punch a hole (through front and back sides...approx 1" in from each side). Insert the lollipops into the stand and thread a ribbon through the punched holes. If you tie it tight enough the lollipops will stand straight up. Here's what it should look like before you add the lollipops:

What a cute & clever idea for the gate fold card, I would have never thought to do that. I love, love, love your new stamps. I would like to say I have a favorite but I like them all. I can think of several ideas using the wagon along with the flower pots or Easter eggs stacked in it. Very cute!
