Easter Card




My girlfriend asked me if I could come up with a simple Easter card project for an upcoming event. It's a small get together with no sales involved (though there is a small fee to make the card), so I thought it would be ok to use some retired products.  Until my new sets from the Occasions mini-catalog arrive, I have to make do with Faith & Hope, and oldie but much loved Easter stamp set from the 2006 mini catalog. I love this set, and I don't think I'll ever part with it! I used the phrase stamp from that set, along with the retired Spring Flowers punch. I feel like it's missing something though...maybe more layers? 

As I was making this card, I realized that I'm a total ribbon addict, and I was wondering if it was possible for me to make a card, scrapbook page, anything without ribbon on it... Maybe that will be a challenge for me this month!

Supplies used: Faith & Hope stamp set, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, So Saffron and Kiwi Kiss cardstock, Washington Apple DSP, Chocolate Chip ink and wide grosgrain ribbon, Spring Flowers punch, silver brads, Big Shot "Little Leaves" die, Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder.
