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!
