After all the fun I had with my sister making cards last weekend and, after discovering a sheet of Spring/Easter die cuts that I have had for years and had squirreled away, I decided that I really should make a few more cards.... this time in readiness to send at Easter.
The die cut sheet I had was designed by Debbie Mumm who I followed very closely when I first learned to quilt as she has written many quilting books. (Most of which I have on the bookshelf in my sewing room!)
I ran the card stock through my printer to print the outside greeting and also to add a greeting to the inside of the card. The designs are very simple and mainly involved cutting and sticking which was easy to do and very therapeutic. As with quilting/stitching the most difficult part was picking the colours and then positioning the pieces to make them look balanced (some are more successful than others).
There are a few cards which did not use the die cuts but other stickers and bits and pieces which I have had tucked away for a long time! Surprising what you can find when you look in the right places!!
One of the Easter cards was made from a card I had made last weekend but hadn't felt entirely happy with. I had stamped the image too high on the card, so I cut it out and re-purposed it! I like it better now! If you are interested in looking at the cards in greater detail there are individual photographs on my handmade card page.
