Make it Monday #57 A Handmade Easter Card

Make it Monday #57 A Handmade Easter Card

Hello and welcome to another blog post I am so happy you are here today. Today’s Make it Monday episode #57 is an adorable handmade easter card. For this is a special card as it was also created for my Facebook Group “Crafty Stamping Club – Smithy’s Stampers” Card Challenge (Week 35).

This project was CASEd from our Annual Catalogue but I changed it up a bit to make it my own. Our annual cataloge (and webpages) are full of free inspiration, for days where you just can’t get your head around what you wanna make?! Tell me you have days like that too right?

I used the Wildly Happy stamp set today, I felt the little bunnies were perfect for my card. Just look at those adorable images in this fabulous stamp set – cute.

Stampin’ Blends were used to colour the bunnies. Colours were light crumb cake and light petal pink

I utilised some of my left over embellishments from my Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit and these really made the card really pop for me.
