Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
Easter is just around the corner, it’s high time to send out some cards to friends and family, especially now that many countries, Poland included, entered lockdown yet again and we won’t be able to travel and meet our close ones. So today I bring you two cards to inspire you to send out Easter wishes 🙂
I used the Miles Apart collection for my cards. The first one is a patchwork Easter egg card:
I first applied a stencil frame upon a layered background and then placed an egg decorated with pieces of papers. Patchwork patterns are very decorative and useful ways to utilise even smallest bits of paper leftovers, and they are a great fun to make! Easy enough to create with your kids too!
For the second card I embossed a stamped “stained glass” image of Christ Risen, hand-coloured it with Distress inks and placed upon a delicate damaska background. I also used a piece of the signature strip from one of the papers as a decorative border.
I tried to make several layers for each card yet still keep them flat enough to go into an enevelope.
Here’s what I used to make the cards:
Maja Design papers:
Other: dies: Marianne Design, X-cut, CreaLies, Craft&You Design; flowers: Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts; stamps, stencil: Agateria; acrylic pearls: my stash.
That’s all for today, thank you for visiting! I also wish you a very happy Easter, filled with joy and hope for better times!
