Easter Sketch Card

There is a new sketch at the Clean And Simple Stamping Blog:

I was just ITCHING to play in my studio, so even though this sketch wasn't really 'speaking to me' I went ahead and made a card. I should have known better - circles are just not my thing.

I made an A2 sized card base from Pear Pizzazz (SU), and cut a white card stock circle with a Nestability die. That was stamped with clouds (Posh) and lightly inked at the edge with blue ink.

The sweet wreath is a Memory Box die, cut out of kraft card stock and I attached it to the circle with a (Tim's) Tiny Attacher.

The bird die is also from Memory Box - and it was cut out of Baja Breeze (SU), inked and then stamped with dots in blue and green ink.  Stamps By Judith makes the dot stamp - it's one I have had for years and years and I still love and use it often.

I used a MFT die to cut the long oval, and the word stamp is from Impress.  It still needed something, so I added gems with my iRock tool.

 Here is a peek at the inside - I stamped the same cloud around the edge of the white panel before attaching it inside, and will add the Easter or Spring verse when it comes time to send the card.

So while this isn't a card I'm overly happy with ... it's done and I really REALLY enjoyed getting back into my studio.

Thanks for stopping by today.
