Challenge 160 at Crafty Cardmakers - Easter

Apologies - I thought I had scheduled this for the right date, but apparently not as I have just noticed it is not there and have uploaded manually!


Our hostess for today's challenge, Mary, would love to see your Easter inspired creations. You can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule!

My card base was made using a tattered lace die - Ornamental centre stepper.  I really like these die sets - tattered lace dies are often too fancy for me -  but these are really useful.  You get the score and cut lines done for you and more importantly all the mats and layers can be done quickly and easily.  This set in particular came with lots of embellishments.

To "dress" my stepper card I used a background paper I had from a kit which I cut with the dies and distressed the edges.  My brief for the card was easter, lambs, chicks and daffodils so I used some stock images I had on a cd and imported them into my serif craft artist 2 (LOVE that programme) and created the images to embellish my card.  It's not totally to my taste but the commissioner loved it, and that's what counts!


  1. A fabulous Easter card Jackie. The easel card makes the perfect base for your adorable images and gorgeous papers. I also love how you have added the message onto the egg, such a great idea. Sally.x.
