Did you know that today is a special Tuesday known in different parts by different names (Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, Pancake Day, and even Fasnacht Day) which marks just 40 Days to Easter?
Well, with only 40 Days before Easter, that means I need to get started on Spring and Easter cards. I already had the cute We Must Celebrate Stamp set out to create the card for this weekend’s Stamp ‘N Hop post, so I decided to continue playing with that set and make my first Easter card of the year.
My card started with this adorable bunny colored with Blends. I’m a sucker for cute or realistic critter stamps and this We Must Celebrate set delivers cuteness overload!
I turned to the You’re Inspiring set for the Easter sentiment which fit nicely in the small oval Stitched framelits die cut.
If you look through the catalogs you won’t see Pool Party 1/8” sheer ribbon. I used the Pool Party Light Blend to color the White Sheer ribbon so that it would match my card base. Coloring ribbon is one fantastic benefit to owning the Blends alcohol markers.
I used the Softly Falling Embossing Folder to add texture to my Daffodil Delight Card front and strip of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper to evoke the flowers of Spring which begin to appear from the ground just around Easter in my part of the world (Pennsylvania, USA).
If you are celebrating this Tuesday by gorging on pancakes, donuts or fasnachts, fatty foods, or king cakes, I wish you a great day. I believe I too might have a donut with my coffee and wistfully think about that warmer weather which should arrive around Easter, because for now I’m about done seeing the white fluffy stuff, cold weather, and ice. So bring on Spring!
Until next time…
