Happy April! This month is not only my namesake, but my birthday month and I always get really excited! Also this month, many will be celebrating the Easter holiday. Whether you’ll be celebrating Easter or Spring break, the card I’m sharing today is festive enough for the entire month.
To start this card, I wanted a subtle yet interesting background. I took Layer B from the Kinsley Heart Plate Layering set and cut it from heavyweight white cardstock. I took this layer and glued it down to an A2 card panel.
Next, I grabbed the Memory Box vintage Pastel Mirror pad. I have been LOVING this pad that has a mix of foil cardstocks and have used up so many of the colors. I chose blue, light pink and peach colors from the set. I cut layers A, B and C from the Petal Egg Layer set — one layer from each color.
PRO TIP: Want to add some dimension to your layering cardstock pieces? Add some foam dots behind one of the layers.
To add dimension to my card I glued layer A directly to layer B for the egg. Then I added foam dots to the back of layer B and adhered it to layer C. This helped pop up the top two layers. This technique would also work well for creating a shaker element on a card.
I finished off the front of the card by adding jewels from the Memory Box pastel jewel pack, to every section of the egg that had a small dot cut out. I then added a few jewels to the background of the card front as well.
Lastly, I thought the front looked great as is, so I added the sentiment on the inside. I used two sentiments ‘Easter’ and ‘celebrate the miracle of’ from the Blooming Spring Stamp set.
That is the card for today! If you are in a rush, you can definitely skip adding the jewels and just put the layers of the egg together for a look that is still very elegant.
I hope the rest of your Saturday goes well!
