Easter Card

Easter is just around the corner. Here's a card that cuts corners - oh, what an awful pun!   Anyway, I lifted the idea for my oval card from this card at Two Peas in a Bucket by joyfulitl.

She used Close to My Heart's Cricut cartridge to cut the shape.  This looks like a fantastic cartridge with lots of versatility.  I've never ordered anything from CTMH but it looks like they have some very pretty products.

I used my SCAL software and my Cricut to come fairly close and add a second layer.  For the flowers, I used the Upsy Daisy stamp, markers and a spritz of water before stamping to give that watercolor look.  I learned the hard way that one light spritz is all it takes or your flowers look like they have been through a flood.

Thanks for visiting today!

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Upsy Daisy and All Holidays by Stampin' Up!
Markers:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasbi, Pretty in Pink
Twine:  Doodlebug
Cardstock:  Melon Mambo


  1. What a pretty card! I have this stamp set & love it. I may have to case this card if you don't mind.

  2. beautiful Easter card Lisa-love the bright colors you have used-had to laugh at the "light spritzing" comment. I tried this once and I had the flood. Didnt try it again

  3. Your card is so pretty. Neat shape.
    LOL, at the flowers looking like they were in a flood if too much water is used ;)
    You are making me jealous with your weather, snowed again here today.

  4. Love the idea of an oval card! You did a great job creating it and I love the colors you chose!

  5. Great card! Love the shape, and the watercolor effect.
