Easter Inspiration with Connie!

Hi, Connie here with a couple of really cute Easter cards using the new Mulberry Collection by Quick Quotes. This technique is easy and kid friendly. A great project to make together with the family.

Do you see all of the fun papers in the new Mulberry Collection? So bright!! I used two sheets of paper to create two cards.  Here is how they are made:

Mulberry 103 and 105. Cut in 1/2" strips (9 total). You will have a few left over.

Instructions:
  1. Draw an egg.  Cut it out. The size depends on how big you want your card to be. This one is about 4 1/2". 
  2. Cut the strips in thirds. That would be 4" pieces.
  3. Spread liquid adhesive on the egg template and start laying the 4" strips across the template in a straight line.
  4. Let the glue dry for a few minutes.
  5. Cut around the egg template.
  6. Shade the eggs with Blue Jeans PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  7. Cut a double mat: large one 4 3/4" x 6"  and the one that fits inside is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Shade with Blue Jeans. Adhere together
  8. The Petaloo flowers are pulled apart and shaded with Buttercup PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  9. Adhere the Easter egg to the card front and add embellishments
  10. Stamp out the sentiment, cut around and adhere.
