My class Stamp Together Class at Dunelm was using the Daffodil Daydream bundle for some cheerful Easter cards.
The Dies within this Bundle can seem quite daunting, so I helped guide the ladies through their assembly. Each flower head was made in Very Vanilla with the trumpets made from So Saffron and of course, Daffodil Delight. Sponging the top layer with Bumblebee, helped add shading and contour. A touch of Granny Apple Green ink was equally added to the stems and leaves.
These colours popped on this striped Pool Party paper from the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper pack. A band of So Saffron sat across the middle having been stamped with Bumblebee ink for detail. Pulling all the yellows in, I added a strip of Bumblebee Gingham ribbon and a Baker’s twine bow.
Sponging Pool Party ink across the middle of a white circular focal point helped draw your eye to the flowers. Cutting from two sentiments leads to tailor-made greetings.
Making a card and tag to match
Our second card had us using another patterned paper from the Hand-Penned pack before die cutting a circle aperture. We didn’t dispose of the die cut circle but made use of it for a Tag or card topper. You’ll see below.
Stamping Daffodils both inside the card and onto scrap card to die cut, allowed us to give real depth of field and dimension.
Off cuts like this die cut circle could be made into either a tag or, as shown below, used as a card topper. This allows for a gift set of card and tag, or helps use up die cut pieces.
Brushed Brass Butterflies were the perfect embellishment for these cards. Some really cheerful Easter cards, which I hope have inspired you to get creative.
