By Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

Simple and easy to make Easter greetings card with an egg shell-like background made by sprinkling Fireworks! paint on a blank white card and lightly distress with MEMENTO Desert sand ink pad. Stamp on a piece of cotton ribbon with VersaFine CLAIR Tulip red to use as an embellishment to decorate the card.

 

Skill: Beginner

Time: 45 min

 

Directions

 

Step 1

Sprinkle Fireworks! Desert Sand on a piece of 4×6 in white card stock. Cover half of it and sprinkle with Fireworks! Rhubarb Stalked color.

 

Step 2

Use a Sponge Dauber to lightly distress around the white card stock piece with the MEMENTO Desert Sand ink pad.

 

Step 3

Stamp the abstract stamp with VersaFine CLAIR Tulip Red on a piece of cotton ribbon.

 

Step 4

Color a wooden Happy Easter shape with VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne ink pad.

 

Step 5

Use the same ink pad to stamp an egg design on the natural card stock and cut around it.

 

Step 6

Place Tear It! Tape to the back of the cotton and gingham ribbons. Glue the white card stock piece on the card base.

Attach the cotton ribbon first, then half-covering with the gingham ribbon. Add loops of jute cord with hot glue. Finally, place the egg with some foam tape and the Happy Easter shape.
