Quick make – Easter card

For today’s project is a really quick, bright, colourful Easter card.

I started with a standard A6 card blank and cut a panel of white linen effect card, measuring 10.1 x 14.4cm (giving me a 2mm border all around the edge).

 

Firstly, using low-tack masking tape, I masked off a cross shape at the centre of the card.

 

I tore a piece of paper to make a mask for the hills and ground and then applied “Bundled Sage” and “Vintage Photo” to the bottom portion of the panel.

 

I then applied “Worn Lipstick”, “Wild Honey”, “Fossilized Amber” and “Broken China” to the top of the panel, before adding a vignette with “Black Soot”.  I added a few small water splashes to break up the colour in places and to add interest to the background.

I removed the masking tape and, using my Pigma Micron pen, I drew an outline around the cross and added some grass detail onto the hillside.  I then chose to add some Gold Wink of Stella pen around the edges of these areas too.

I edged the card by pressing the edges of the panel into some VersaFine ink before adding Gold embossing powder, from Wow! and heat setting; before sticking the panel to the card with double-sided tape.

Finally, I added a butterfly from my stash to the cross, only applying glue to the body, in order to add some dimension to the card.

So, as I said earlier, a really quick make for today.  If you liked this project, then please do let me know by liking the post and following me here on WordPress for more ideas and inspiration.  I am also on social media and you can find me on Facebook and Instagram.
