Beautiful Wings Easter Card
Hello everyone! Well, we've survived a week with pneumonia, followed by a week of the stomach flu. My kids have been sick non-stop for the past two weeks. I am sick of having sick kids. I think we are finally on the road to wellness. I still have some lingering symptoms of my sinus infection, but other than that, we are good.
I finally got around to making another video. I was lacking inspiration this morning...but I finally came up with this card. I was trying to do something springy. I usually prefer darker, richer colors to pastels, but I forced myself to use soft, cheery colors for this Easter card. I used So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie for the butterflies. I couldn't escape using Kraft card stock for the base of my card, partly because I had a precut and folded card just sitting on my craft table. Overall, I think it turned out pretty good.
I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit to cut and emboss the little butterflies for this card. I love these embosslits. I can't believe I haven't purchased any before now. You will be seeing me use a couple more of these in the near future. I also used the Well Scripted stamp set and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
I also have to mention that I finally purchased the Stampin Up clear blocks. I love them! They feel great in your hands. I love that they feel like wood blocks. There are lots of sizes available...but I think my favorite so far is the "D" block. We'll see.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your day!
