2nd batch of Easter Cards

Well goodness! I forgot to keep posting cards! Before I get to Mother’s Day cards I better post the rest of Easter 2020.

Easter Embossed Cross

I made this card for a couple customers that wanted a Christian themed Easter Card.

After I made one for orders I decided to make some for my friends and family. So I made them in three colors that I felt fit the receiver.

As I was working on Easter Cards I saw this photo journaling card and got to thinking about how I could turn into a Easter Card. I came up with the ideal to add the dots and the rest of the sentiment. I had my friend make it sound good and this was the finished product. I came up with this ideal because I like the fun part of Easter but also remember that Jesus is the reason for Easter. I sent this to my new adopted Niece and Nephews and they loved it!

April Inspirational Card Challenge – Inspirational Photo – I went with the Easter theme and the eggs.

Used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #602 for my inspiration.

Easter Chic on Eggs

One of the ladies wanted a card for her dad that is into gardening and native Nebraska flowers. So I learned that the daisy is a native Nebraska flower! So I added the flowers to the journaling photo card and then used Sketch #594 at Cards with Connie & Mary (I flipped it).

I made two cards so I decided to give one to my friend Dale.

Happy Easter Egg

So I make cards for a guy at work and then I also make cards for his mother. I made Easter cards for the mother to give to her friends and son (watercolor paper cross card). Then I made this card for the son to give to his mother (parents). She wrote me today and said she loved it! The mom likes flowers so when I saw the journaling photo card I knew to pair it with this bright happy flower paper! I cut down the journaling card and put the dotted frame around it. I used Create with Connie & Mary Sketch #598 as my inspiration. I used a flower punch to add to the strip below the egg. Because some of the journaling photo cards are big I bought 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 envelopes so this card is 6 x 6. It’s big but not too big.

I made 2 of these and sent one of these to my Aunt Barb! Happy Mail!!

He is Risen - all three

I needed a card for a lady to give her son. So he got the green/yellow one since that was more manly. I used an older image from Clearly Digi Stamps (no longer in business). Since I’m not good with inks and watercolor I used paper that was already done for me!!

Coloring Eggs

So when I did the Easter Train card I decided to not use the cart with the paint brushes and used the jelly bean one instead. So in wanting to use up that sticker I thought it would pair with the paint brush and egg stickers on the same sheet. I then saw the sketch MFTWSC474 and it worked perfectly!

An ornery Easter

Happy Easter Bunny

So I saw this image at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps and he just made me smile in all his plaid and polka dot combination! So I wanted to use him but didn’t have anything in mind at the time. Well, a friend of mine, Dale, was in the hospital last month with heart issues. I wanted to make him a get well card but nothing came to mind. He is already home now so I thought maybe I will just make an Easter Card and I remembered this image. Then I made my girlfriend’s card (see post before this one) and took the saying I put on hers and changed it to fit Dale:

Hoping your Easter world
is bright and colorful,
weird and crazy,
ornery and special…

…just like you.

I decided it fit my brother too so I hit him a card also!

I used sketch #6 at the Cardmakers Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com (the original sketch is from i {heart} sketches #120).
