Creating with Crafty Secrets Easter Postcards
You can use these as postcards by printing off both sides on the same sheet of paper, or you can print fronts and backs separately, like I did to make this card.
I sized the cards to fit a standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock, 4 to a sheet. I used part of the post card backs on the card front, and I just love the way it looks.
Talk about a quick and easy card! I just added some sweet dotted organza ribbon, and a few other flowers and the card was done!
Here you can see the Glossy Accents I applied over the letters to make them pop, and a few touches of Diamond Stickles to give the card that old fashioned feel.
I added a few sweet stickers from Spring Joys Heartwarming Vintage stickers. (Enabler alert…they are on sale right now!) I also used a scrap piece of my favorite new paper from CS, embossed lace and floral double sided paper .
I’ve used this in a lot of my spring projects, and I’m always amazed at how textured that embossed lace looks! Another little post card back gives you plenty of room to add your own greeting. These vintage post cards have been so much fun to work with. I’ll be back next week to show you another fun Easter card I made.
I love that I was able to pull this card together quickly, but you’d never know it by looking at it. The printable postcard did all the heavy lifting for me. And, you could make it bigger or smaller, depending on how you wanted to use it!
That’s it for me today, friends! Have you started working on your Easter preparations yet? I’m looking forward to the Easter brunch and egg hunt we have with the grandgirls every year. I’d love to hear what you are working on right now! It would make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers!
