2011 Easter Cards, Part I

I always make Easter cards for my grandchildren, and since I only bought one new Easter stamp set, I had to get creative for my grandsons' card.  I found a placecard holder online, and I thought it would make a great card for them.  A lot of Q-tips and sticky fingers later, I finished the lamb and had to use my glue gun in order to make it stay on the card!  I used my Martha Stewart grass punch and some flowers I punched out to add a bit of dimension since the lamb really "pops" out from the card.
I entered this card in The Shabby Tea Room's Challenge #58.  I used a lot of pastel colors, and my grass is in a striped pattern!

Paper:  SU Bashful Blue, Green Galore, YoYo Yellow, pink paper from my stash; Stamp:  AC Moore;  Ink:  SU Green Galore; Punches:  Martha Stewart grass punch, SU Boho Blossoms; Accessories:  SU clear embossing powder, glitter, ribbon and white "lollypop" sticks from my stash.

My granddaughter's favorite color is purple, so I used SU  Orchid Opulence and Whisper White to create a card for her. I embossed the background and then sponged it with Orchid Opulence.   The only Easter stamp set I bought this year was SU Easter Blossoms, and I was able to combine the branches and
silhouette of the girl for my focal point. 

Stamp:  SU Easter Blossoms; Paper:  SU Orchid Opulence, Whisper White; Ink:  SU Orchid Opulence, Kiwi Kiss; Accessories:  Spellbinders Oval Scallop die, Marvy Uchida Oval Scallop punch, Prima flower, SU Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, ribbon from my stash.
