Easter Card Using SCRAPS!

Good morning today is the day to rediscover those bits and pieces that you aren’t using in your craft room.

I am participating in the Rediscover Your Supplies Instagram hop. If you’d like to hop along, you can find me at @expressivepaper and start the hop there.

For this month’s hop, we could choose to do either a spring-themed card or a mixed card. I chose to combine both parameters. It’s an Easter card made with loads of little scraps of colored card stock, metallic card stock, paper, glue, ink and embossing powder. It’s good to use this stuff.

I have recently added a small bin from the Dollar Store right next to my die-cutting machine. I throw reasonable-sized colored scraps in it. I also have another for just white, black, and metallic. Since adding these bins I find myself using scraps much more often.

I started by cutting, scoring, and folding a top folding square base. The card base measures 5“ x 5“.

I cut a white card stock panel measuring 3.75“ x 3.75“. I added interest to this panel Using the Texturize It stamp set from LDRS Creative. This stamp has everything you need to texturize your backgrounds or your elements postmarks, splatters, lines, numbers, music, notes, and more, and is available today on the LDRS website here

The dry I divided the panel into nine equal squares with A pencil and ruler. I’ve started to dig through my scrap card stock bin. I found four pieces of gold metallic card stock that I had previously cut into thin strips for another project. These strips formed the interior border for my grid. I glued them down using a liquid adhesive.

Next, I dug into my colored card stock bin. I knew I wanted pastel springtime colors and found loads. It always feels good to use scraps that I tend to hoard

The Easter on Its Way die set from LDRS Creative. I cut several of the eggs from the colored card. I also used scraps of white card stock to glue to the back of the collard card stock to add dimension.

I set these adorable eggs aside to dry and started to work on my sentiment. For the sentiment, I used the Simply Words die set that can also be found on the LDRS Creative site here.

I cut the word from a scrap piece of gold card stock and four more times from White card stock. I adhered these pieces together with liquid glue.

Sentiment placement can sometimes be difficult for me. I am not the best at aligning small items I stamped the word Easter in Versamark Ink onto one of the white egg die-cuts, sprinkled on some gold, embossing powder, and heated.. I added some more of these egg die-cuts with liquid glue for dimension. That completed my sentiment. The word Easter and many more spring-themed stamps are in the new Hops & Waddles collage & stamp set.

Now it’s time to assemble the card.

I added foam tape to the back of the texturized panel and added It to my card base.

Using a strong liquid glue. I added the white Easter egg to the front. I also added the word happy with glue.
