Scrappy Easter Cards!

Just a quick post to say "Happy Easter"!

Yesterday and this morning (in between fighting allergies) I enjoyed some serious studio time!  My first creation will remain unseen for awhile, but from the scraps and some scraps in my scrap box I made these Easter cards!

I tried a new style of card - a "tri-shutter card".  I followed the directions at SplitCoastStampers.  It was surprising easy and looks awesome in person!  I don't have any Easter saying stamps, so "Plan A" was to print on velum, then emboss.  "Plan B" and "Plan C" also involved the printer and different velum.  The printer was not cooperating. "Plan D" involved printing the saying, placing velum on top and copy using an embossing pen.  It worked.

The side fold card uses an image from Tim's "seasonal paper stash".  (So did the Tri-Shutter card).  This is a true scrappy card - everything came from my scrap heap including the card base!  It's a little smaller than standard - it is 5.25 x 4.00".  If you were able to see behind the image, you'd see the rose paper has a partial circle cut out of the top!  I love using scraps and creating something new!  The picture is not the greatest, it looks much better in person.  "Happy Easter" is stamped inside.

This one is also all from the scrap heap and the sticker files.  Again the picture is not the best.

 My last card is another image from Tim's seasonal paper stash.
