Today I am sharing another gorgeous floral Easter card inspiration that is a slight departure from my usual style of cards. It is always good to stretch and challenge oneself! I have just purchased some beautiful Mintay papers – Elodie and I just love the soft pastel shades and designs of this collection. I have combined these papers and die cuts with some cute Easter themed Mintay Chippies and Heartfelt Creations flowers and dies for a sweet one of a kind Easter card. The florals remind us that for many around the world spring is on the way and it is time to ‘celebrate new beginnings’.
My project for today
I have created a 5″ x 7″ card base and layered different blue pattern papers and white cardstock to create the base. I die cut the decorative die from the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Circle Frames three times from white cardstock and then adhered to the front of the card. I die cut the eyelet edge circle from another contrasting pattern from the Elodie papers and adhere to the front of the decorative die. I have then added a mix of die cuts and chippies to the card front to create the background scene for the card. I have made lilies and small clematis flowers out of Rajni Chawla’s Flower Shaping Paper and adhered them around the images and chippies. I then stamped and die cut the leaves from the Garden Lilies stamp and die set and the Holly Berry Spray stamp and die set. I shaped these leaves and then added them around the flowers as shown.
The pink filler flowers have been created adding the pink Prills to some floral wire with a hot glue gun. These make great fillers and the pink toned really well with the Elodie papers.
To complete the card I have stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motif Sentiments Clear Stamp Set in Altenew Obisidian Pigment ink on white cardstock and then die cut it out with the tag die from the Amazing Paper Grace Just a Note Sentiments. This was adhered to the top right of the card and to finish I added a small blue jewel.
