Yep, my favorite challenge is Sketch Week! But this time is also Easter week, so I made my card an Easter theme. You know, “two birds/one stone”! Plus, this one is fast and easy! So let’s make this.
Step: Pick a designer paper or card stock I chose a paper sold by sheet from Michael”s Craft Store. But the sketch is generic for what ever theme you want. so choose a print that goes with the object that will be featured in the circle. Cut a rectangle from your choice that measures 5.25″ x 6.75″.
Step 2: Make a base card by scoring a 8.5″ x 11″ piece of card stock at 5.5″. Fold over for a tent card. Trim to 5.5″ x 7″. Adhere the rectangle from step 1 to the front of the base card.
Step 3: Using the 5th largest die in Elizabeth Craft Designs 1116 – Stitched Circles: https://www.elizabethcraftdesigns.com/products/stitched-circles-1116
Cut a circle with Blue Card Stock.
Using the middle die in Elizabeth Craft Designs 1254 – Entwined Circles: https://www.elizabethcraftdesigns.com/products/entwined-circles
Cut an entwined circle with white card stock.
Step 4: Using Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1459 – Spring Basket and Die set Bunny:https://www.elizabethcraftdesigns.com/products/die-set-spring-basket
Cut 4 eggs, the bow and 4 grass pieces from the Spring basket die set. Cut all the pieces for the bunny and assemble him.
Step 5: From Elizabeth Craft Designs 1467 – Words 3 Happy Holidays: https://www.elizabethcraftdesigns.com/products/die-set-words-3-happy-holidays
Cut the words “Happy” and “Easter from blue card stock.
Step 6: I cut two fishtail banners: one white and one blue by hand. (The white one slightly smaller than the blue) Adhere the white over the blue and then add the “Happy Easter” words to the banner.
Step 7: Assemble the rest of the card as shown:
