Easter Notecards

I had so much fun making the Easter Banner for the Spellbinders™ Bunny Hop that I got out my dies and made matching notecards. Wouldn’t these be so adorable attached to Easter baskets and Easter gifts! I used Spellbinders Lacey Squares dies that coordinate with the Lacey Pennants dies for the card backs. I made the little flowers with the small flower die in the Easter Fun dies.   

To make the card fronts, I cut cream cardstock to fit within the lacey square, scored it, folded it in half and adhered it to the lacey square. I photocopied the images from my sons’ old Beatrix Potter Giant Story Book, cut to size, stitched around the edges and sponged a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. I placed pearls on the scallops, as well as inside the bow.

I made baskets with the eggs and placed them inside the notecards. You can find the basket with eggs tutorial here

This is so precious for a little girl’s Easter basket.  The pink is so soft and sweet, almost the color of cotton candy.

I love the lacey dies and will be placing an order soon for more of them!

A precious card for a little boy’s basket.

And wouldn’t this one be adorable for an infant’s first Easter!

Using the Grand Calibur made this project a snap, it’s a big time saver being able to pass several dies through the machine at once.

Paper:  Light Green, Light Blue, Light Pink, Light Yellow, Cream and White cardstock.

    Oh my Jerri, they´re so gorgeous, and sooo much more than “just” a notecard. I think, they´re small masterpieces, and there´ll definately be some very happy kids in your house for Easter, that´s for sure. I totally agree with you, that these lacey dies are awesome, and I really think, I “need” to get some of these too, as they looks stunning. There always seems to be some more of these, I just “need” to get too ha ha ha.
    I love these, you really did an awesome job once again hun.
    Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for sharing these beauties with us.

      What kind of drugs are you on? This does not have anything to do with Jerri’s beautiful creations. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.

    Hi Jerri
    Fab cards as always, don’t know if anyone has mentioned it before but Crafter’s Companion produce Beatrix Potter stamps and CD’s licensed by the original publishers so they are authentic images – save you cutting up or copying your son’s books. (By the way i’m just a crafter nothing to do with the above company. Hope this helps.

  17. LindaMar says:

    You start my day! I go on the computer (5am) before work while waiting for my husband to finish up so we can go. I am always so happy to see my inbox with your “Touch of Grace”. I am so delighted to start my day with your inspiration. Simply lovely! Thank you!

    Hi Jerri

    As a massive Peter Rabbit fan – these are the most adorable things that I have ever seen. The colours are so gorgeous. Where do you get them from? The reason I ask is because in the UK, a company called Crafters Companion have released a whole range under licence with F. Warne, which includes a whole range of CD’s and stamps. This same company has also done the same with the original Flower Fairies.

    I just love what you have done here – and when you explain it, i actually believe that maybe I could have a try – however, I don’t think they would turn out as exquisite as yours.

    I am in such awe of your work always, and just catching up on old posts as I’ve not been on my computer for a couple of weeks.

    hugs
