Welcome! It’s almost Easter, can you believe it? I know we are all going through a tough time right now. But today, I’ve got a fabulous WOW Team Easter Card Swap to share with you. Some of my team members were able to participate and I’ve got all the scoop on their cards. Hope this beautiful eye candy cheers you up. First up, we have Nancy Sanders. You can find Nancy’s site here.
Nancy chose the Easter Promise set for her fabulous fancy fold. Because she included the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies DSP, she was able to create a lovely springtime color palette. And of course you want to see the inside, right?
How beautiful is that? Nancy has definately inspired me to try this fold. Next up, we have team member Lisa Lepine. You can find Lisa’s website here.
Lisa chose not only the Beautifully Braided bundle, but also tied in the sentiment from the Easter Promise set as well. I love the idea of stamping that big bold flower as the focal image. Lisa then stamped it again to fussy cut some of the blooms. By doing so, she was able to add lots of dimension to her WOW Team Easter Card Swap entry.
She finished things off with the pretty image from the Braided Border Punch. Lightly inking the cross was a brilliant little detail. The next card in our Easter card swap is mine. I’ve already blogged this card and featured it on my YouTube Channel. Here’s a photo and link to the blogpost in case you missed it.
Last, but certainly not least, we have the super stinkin’ cute card by Dawn Galland. Dawn featured the Fable Friends set from the annual catalog.
As soon as I saw that background techique, I knew I wanted Dawn to teach me how to achieve all that texture. It’s quite easy and I’ll show you how in the video tutorial below.
Because the Fable Friends set has so many little critters, it’s super easy to finish off the inside of the card as well. I know you’re anxious to see that background in action. Here you go.
