With Easter just around the bend and so many bright Spring colors in play around me, I was easily inspired to create some fun cards this week.
I love all things vintage Easter…or as I’ve had to settle for: replica vintage Easter…but it’s all good 🙂 I have several glittered yellow chicks sitting around the house and even an old bunny cake mold on display in my kitchen. When I spotted these printable ‘post card’ prints at Etsy, I just had to have them! I thought that they’d be so cute paired up with the lovelies from Vintage Street Market.
After cutting out the selected ‘postcard’, I wrapped a piece of Linen Tinted Tape around the edges (as if the postcard had been removed from an old scrapbook and the tape dog-eared). I then layered it with a scrap piece of scrapbook paper (from my stash), a light blue Bingo Card, the top part of a Dimestore Vogue Tag and a strip of yellow ruffled crepe from the Party Games Collection. Next, I added dots of Rose German Glass Glitter to the patterned paper. I embellished the front of the ‘postcard’ with pearls, paper flowers and leaves (from my stash) and a Pink Twirly Twine bow. I also added a border of Pink Twirly Twine around the perimeter of the card.
Nothing says Happy Birthday like a big ‘ole bright card! I adore the nostalgic motifs of the Party Games Collection…it takes me back to a time when pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey was the thing to do at parties 🙂
I used the cute tag and hand-cut the banner from the Party Games Collection. I machine stitched the Red Bingo Card onto a piece of Maggie Jane Family Fun paper. I attached the ‘banner’ to the card front with foam dots, then strung a piece of Red Twirly Twine across the top. Three dotted button gives it just the right amount of dimension and personality 🙂
See you next time…enjoy!
