Blue and brown or tan is one of my all time favorite color combinations.  Soft and vintage, it really speaks to me of days gone by.  To enhance the blue tones in the focal image, I added a pretty Baby Blue Circus Dot Grosgrain Ribbon Bow topped with a brown posy.

TIP: Add  a circular element to a rectangular card to create visual interest and a welcome contrast to square corners.  I used a Spellbinder Large Standard Circle die to cut the focal image, then adhered it to a  Spellbinders Triple Tear Nestablilities circle cut from light blue cardstock.  (I used this same color to build my card base.

TIP: Look for embellishments in unusual places.  I found this wooden Easter egg in a non-scrapbooking store.  They were in the gift wrapping department and had little clothespins glued to the back.  Remove the clothespins, and you have a mighty sweet little card embellishment!

TIP: Place butterfly embellishments around your card focal.  They will actually guide the viewer’s eye all the way around the card. Every element gets seen this way, but the eye comes back to the center, which makes the brain happy!

Baby Bunny Easter Card Folio: The Folio

I like to think of these card folios as gifts…or in this case, an adult Easter basket!  A pair of pockets holds some fun treats, room for photos and personal notes, too.

The upper pocket holds a decorated honey stick and a little altered metal spoon. (Not food safe…just pretty to look at!)   Wrap a belly band around the folio, add a bow, and look how cute it is!

The flip folio has tuck spots, belly bands with photo mounts,flaps,  pull down pages and a pocket tucked inside.

This would be such a great way to store family Easter photos from year to year.  Then you could just pull the folio out each year as part of your Easter decor.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

    The bunnies in this paper collection are delightful, Kathy. Your folio utilizes them so well. Love the pockets and flaps–the papers layer so well. tfs

    Oh Kathy, this is so sweet! I love the color combination. You find the best extra embellishments. I’m always on the lookout for bits and pieces but don’t have much success. I have a question. Is the MFT blue card stock that you used a true powder blue or does it have some green in it? I want to order it but I can’t tell the exact color it is. Thank you!

    Oh, what a sweet Easter folio, Kathy! That image of the little girl holding the bunny is so precious and nostalgic looking. I also really like the color combinations of browns, tans, and blues. This really is a fantastic collection and you have combined the different papers so beautifully. Love the accents and that little egg on the front with the dancing bunnies is perfect! Thank you for sharing and for always giving your much appreciated tips! Hugs!
