an Easter card


i know this is late, but really, it's only a week off... i made this card REALLY quickly for my mom for Easter. when i got up for church and got to the table for breakfast, i found lovely cards from my brother and mom and dad, and remembered that i hadn't made any cards (or even thought to make one) for my mom or family members. sooo, i had already been thinking about using the "flower lollipop" technique to make a cute retro flower to stick on a card, and i thought Easter would be a perfect occasion. i just picked some papers and punched out circles using McGill, Paper Shapers, and Marvy punches. i crinkled the flower circles by wadding them up into little balls then unfolding them and smoothing them a bit. then i added the cute button and a bow to the top, used glue dots to stick it all together, and picked out some green ribbon for the stem. i also used the Fiskars "Threading Water" punch for the 'grass' because i thought it would work. the sentiment is from a $1 bin at Michaels that has some other cute stamps to go along with it. i used Stickles to add a touch of bling to the corner, and VOILA! i had an Easter card. all in all, i think it took 10-15 minutes... really quick :) hope you enjoy, and TFL!

TOO cute! Love the flower and the button in the middle is perfect! Also, I think the threading water punch was perfect for the grass! Fab job, Ginny!

you FORGOT about easter cards???

this one is totally fab, btw. like, HOT. the only thing you could change about this is maybe a different media for the flower stem. the rest is absolutely gorgeous. and that's not criticism, that's just me commenting on the fact that it's perfect, and i'm being nit-picky 'cause I can...

but you = the best ever. for real.
