My BOLB (Best On Line Buddy) , Ginny, sent me some adorable Vintage Easter Bunny images to work with this time around, and I made them up into sweet Easter cards.  I used my favorite RRR ribbon on each of these cards: White Delicate Stitched Satin.  I first encountered this wonderful ribbon in one of the monthly ribbon club assortments.  I was immediately impressed with its delicate beauty, and then when I tied bows with it I realized it is a dream to work with.  I liked it so much, I bought a whole spool!

I paired it up with another product that I truly love working with.  Iridescent White Metallic String may not look like much when you see it on the spool, but when you add it to a card, it lends a luxurious soft shine to everything.  It also picks up on and reflects whatever color palette you are working with, making it very versatile.

I love the shine of the iridescent string beneath that pink button.  It also looks great tied in the top of one of Ginny’s Nest Tags.

I also made liberal use of my favorite new crochet lace. Beatrice White Crochet Lace adds a touch of elegance and texture that I just love.

Here’s a photo of all 4 cards together.  These images were so sweet, I couldn’t stop at just one card.  You can click on the photos for a closer look.

I used some of Ginny’s adorable vintage button cards on the inside of each card.

    Thanks so much, Colleen! I found those little buttons at an estate sale about 3 years ago. I’ve been saving them for something special, and these sweet images from Polly’s Paper Studio were just the right thing. Hugs!
