card making: easter eggs by the dozen


Easter is coming!  There’s still time to whip up a cute card so here are a dozen different ideas made to inspire you.  In this article I talk about techniques such as heat embossing, doodling, using fabric, hand-stitching, and masking.  Each card has step-by-step directions, extra photos illustrating different steps along the way, and alternative ideas for a different spin on each design.

Not into Easter cards?  That’s okay!  The oval shape used in these examples can easily be replaced with other shapes for other occasions.  Try a star, heart, a simple circle, a basic rectangle, or a diamond shape – you get the idea – and then follow the directions to create a similar result.  Or stick with the oval shape but change up the color palettes and stamped sentiments.  The possibilities are endless!  Happy crafting!
