Pleated Easter Fun!
As you know, I'm party of a monthly swap group with 9 fabulous ladies in San Antonio and this month's theme was Easter or birthday. Since I already have a TON of birthday cards (they're just SO easy to make) and a stamp set that hadn't been touched yet, I chose to do Easter!
It's more spring, than Easter I found, but......that's fine. Growing up in Wisconsin, (and not from a religious background) easter was the gateway to spring! Green grass, a crisp warming of the air, puddles and bike rides. In Alaska, its snow. That's it. Just snow. Even though it has been really mild this winter. :)
Because of all this snow, I've been in the springtime mood. I've been gravitating to a lot of bright colors and flowers! I just can't get enough of them right now!
After a little pinterest and Stampin' Connection (a service only available to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) I stumbled upon a pleat card and the rest of my project fell right into place!
|This card uses the retired For Peep's Sake stamp.|
Don't mind the
frayed distressed edges. My paper trimmer blade is on the fritz and I'm anxiously waiting the new ones to be restocked.
Aren't these SO fun! They are incredibly easy as well! The directions for this card are found here and she does a great job with laying it all out. My only tips are that the score lines are going to vary from card to card because of the cuts made. Don't stress like I did thinking I messed up somewhere. You will also have to trim the excess (or make a bigger card) but it will still look great!
Are you going to try this fun card? I HIGHLY suggest it! It is a great way to showcase the beautiful DSP that Stampin' Up carries.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a stamptastic day!!
