Authentique Cottontail Easter Blessings
Hello, Friends! This Authentique Cottontail Easter Blessings card is filled with sweet spring colors and the cutest vintage Easter images. Honestly, there are so many cute patterns and images in this collection that the hardest thing about working with it is deciding which ones to use. But these pastel carrots pretty much win hands down!
Tips and Tricks
- Mat all the layers on pink, blush and kraft cardstock to keep all those pretty patterned papers from becoming muddled.
- Machine stitching helps to frame the layers. It also lends a great vintage feel to the card.
- Layer the banner with dimensionals and overlap the corners so it fits on the 5″ x 7″ card base. Add bows and bitty buttons to really make it stand out.
- A vintage crochet doily adds wonderful texture and works perfectly with the vintage image.
- Fussy cut around the top of the image, then pop up on dimensionals.
- Place hot glue on the ends of the “Easter Blessings” banner, then push toward the center to create a curve. Top with ribbon, metallic string and flowers. Add a trio of aqua buttons in the lower right hand corner of the the card to balance things out.
Authentique Cottontail Easter Blessings: A Peek Inside
This box pocket is the perfect spot to tuck in a little Easter treat.
Just for fun, I created a pocket in a pocket!
Tuck a tea bag and some Peppermint Patties into the pocket. Add a darling little vintage demitasse spoon and a honey stick to complete the Easter Basket treats.
I need to get one of these made for each of the grand girls this year, since we won’t be able to gather for our traditional Easter Dinner and egg hunt. But I can send them each one of these cute Easter Baskets in a card so that they know Nan is thinking of them and missing them.
By the way, I found a fun new app for my phone. It’s called Marco Polo, and it is totally free. The app is kind of like a video style walkie-talkie. I’ve been chatting and singing back and forth with the Littles every day. Today I’m going to try reading them a story and see how that works. It’s easy enough for them to use on their own, and it helps us stay connected. I thought y’all might enjoy it, too!
