One More

Hi friends.  I hope the past week has been a good one.  For me, work continues to be challenging.  By the time I get home, I'm so worn out.  But, enough of that!

Today, I am squeezing in one more Easter card made from Pion Design's Easter Greetings papers.  This one is probably my favorite that I made with this collection.


Beginning with a white cardstock base, I distressed and inked a couple of the papers and layered them onto the card.  The tag was cut from one of the sheets and layered onto another piece of paper.  I used punches to create the hole and reinforcer at the top of the tag and then tied a seam binding bow though it.  The tag was attached to the card with foam tape.  I tucked some cheesecloth underneath it and some vines cut with a Cheery Lynn die.  Crochet trim was placed across the bottom.  The flowers are from my stash and were given a coat of gesso.  The sentiment was cut from the papers.  Lastly, I created some splatters on the card with a mixture of gesso and water.


It's a beautiful spring day here today with cool temperatures and a picture-perfect sky.  My husband and I took a nice long walk as it is a perfect day for doing so.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  I appreciate your sweet comments.  Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!
