Easter Greetings

 Am I the only one who can't believe it is March already!??? That means spring is just around the corner and that all the snow we have will melt. We have had some beautiful, sunny spring like weather lately and it has been amazing to take a walk in the warm sun. 

Spring also means Easter is just around the corner so today I am adding to my Easter card stash using "A Tulip For You" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. This stamp works for Easter but would also work for spring, Valentine's or an anniversary card. So many possibilities and I love when I can use a stamp for more than one occasion! 

I chose to go clean and simple (CAS) with my card design for this adorable stamp. After stamping it, I coloured it with Copic markers and set it aside. Patterned paper from Your Next Stamp with some adorable little hearts was perfect for this pair and I cut it and the card stock to fit my 5.5" x 5.5" card base. 

Next I laid my border edge die onto the stamped image paper to decide where I wanted to cut my border. I placed the sentiment into the space where I wanted to stamp it and then cut my border edge. After placing it on my card base decided how much had to be trimmed off the top to fit leaving a little patterned paper and card stock showing. Then I cut a piece of card stock to the correct width and cut the border edge. I placed the stamped image on to my Misti, placed the sentiment and stamped it directly on to the paper. 

To finish my card, I edged all of the paper with antique linen distress ink and added some twine and color added clear enamel dots.
