Grateful Easel Card




I made this card about 3 weeks ago for the employees at the front desk of my Doctor’s Office.  I thought I would give an easel card a try because I received a beautiful one for Easter and it perked up my mojo.

What I did a little different was I made a shaker window to hold sequins as the stopper to hold the front of the card.

I am sorry for the poor photography but if you click on the photo you may be able to view it better.

I cannot provide a recipe because I forgot to write down all the tools I used to make the card.  However, if you have any questions about the card feel free to ask me.

Some Bunny Loves You



Some Bunny Loves You Easter Cards Hunter and Levi 2017

Inside Views

(Click on Images to Get a Closer View)


I used a new stamp by Simon Says Stamp called Some Bunny.  The little Chick on the green framed card came from last year’s stamp set called Chirpy Chirp Chirp by lawn fawn.

All images and backgrounds were water colored using Zig Clean Color Real Brush. I used Canson 140lb cold press watercolor paper.

The cards are one layered cards except for the chick on the green framed card. I used my SNC to cut out the chick and glued on top of the egg.

All the embellishments and cardstock came from my stash.  The colored card stock is by Core’dinations. 

Sequins used for added flair.  Sparkle from Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle brush. White dots and lines were made using a Signo Uni-ball pen. 

The corners of the card were cut using WRMK Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper (Deco).


My inspiration for these cards came from Prairie Paper & Ink (AmyR):
