Papercraft Star #138-Easter


We are having an Easter Challenge this week at Papercraft Star.  Starting to see a hint of spring around here......actually spotted a few blades of green grass today!  Who would have ever thought green grass would excite me!  I have included our inspiration photo for the week, use if you choose...just show us some Easter in your projects!
This card was fun to make...love it when all of the details come together easily!  My double bow was tied with help from a Bow-Easy.  I can barely tie my shoelaces....and you would not want those bows on a card.  The Bow-Easy makes it super simple to get a great bow everytime!



My eggs were stamped onto colored cardstock and embossed in white.  After embossing in white, I stamped again over the top of the image and embossed with Iridescent  powder to give them a little sparkle.  The great thing about embossing with glitter...it is heat set, so you do not have to worry about glitter coming off your card!


My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Stars & Stamps for Operation Write Home.


I added a few layers and a couple of Easter Eggs to the inside to finish off my card.
