The new two-week challenge starts today at Sugar Creek Hollow and this time it is appropriately called EASTER. We want to see vintage or shabby chic projects that depict Easter.
We have a talented Guest Designer joining us for this challenge. Her name is Nicola but you probably know her as Paper Profusion. Please make her feel welcome and head over to her blog to see her wonderful creations.
I made a little card after I found this adorable vintage Easter postcard online at Mambeenoe. Don't you just love their Easter bonnets?
I started with some white card stock from Staples for my blank and then added some paper from a pad called Picadilly by Basic Grey that I distressed with my scissors and then inked with some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink by Ranger. A coordinating paper from the same pad was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Victoria and inked with more Frayed Burlap.
Next I added some lace and a strand of pearls from my stash. After distressing and inking the image, I mounted it on some white crepe paper that came from Dollarama. The pearl flourishes are also from Dollarama and the large oval crystal gem is from a David Tutera bridal collection that I got on clearance at Michaels.
The flower is made of a large flower by Recollections, a ribbon flower that I made with organza from Arton Bead Supply and a white rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.
