While I’m partial to Fall weather (the crisp cool weather is my favorite), even I can admit that nothing compares to a beautiful Spring day – before the heat really sets in. That’s just what we experienced yesterday in Atlanta. I saved my project for The Pals Paper Arts challenge for today – it’s my Easter gift to you. The colors for this challenge (Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe and Kraft) lend themselves so well to a sweet, Easter card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Sweet Sentiment. As if I haven’t already said this a hundred times, I love the combination of script and print – I always have. I created my own combination of words to create this sentiment – I used “happy” from Yippee-Skippee (the unmasked sentiment is “you can never have too much happy”) and Easter from For Peeps’ Sake (the unmasked sentiment is “Enjoy an egg-celent Easter”). I love them together.
- Pretty in Pistachio. I’ve never been a huge fan of Pistachio Pudding, so I won’t be too sad when it (likely) hits the retirement list later this month (April 21 is the day!). I am, though, a huge fan of this polka dot print from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. It’s a perfect backdrop for this sweet card – and pairs perfectly with Crisp Cantaloupe and Kraft.
- Doilies. Tea Lace Paper Doilies are included in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog, but these aren’t those. 🙂 The doily used here is a slightly smaller doily that’s found in the Artisan Embellishment Kit. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the two (the Tea Lace Paper Doily is on the left at 4″ in diameter, and the doily from the Artisan Embellishment is on the right at 3-1/2″ in diameter):
Stamp Sets: Yippee-Skippee, For Peeps’ Sake Papers: Kraft, Whisper White, All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack Inks: Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe Accessories: 2-1/2″ Circle punch, 2″ Circle punch, Artisan Embellishment Kit, Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine, Stampin’ Dimensionals
