Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a very easy to make elegant Easter Card! Today wraps up my week of Easter Cards featuring the Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper! For today’s card, I combined two different designs from the Daffodil Afternoon DSP, cardstock, Stampin’ Blends, ribbon, and the super cute Brushed Brass Butterflies! The best thing about this card design is that not only do you use up almost two sheets of the DSP to make six cards, but you can use this for any DSP and just about any shaped dies you have for whatever the occasion!
The base layer is this design from the Daffodil Afternoon DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:
For the next two layers, cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 4 ¾” x 3 ½” and using this design from the Daffodil Afternoon DSP, cut at 4 ½” x 3 ¼”, layering this on top of the Mossy Meadow cardstock:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Using the squared die from the Tasteful Labels Dies, die-cut from Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my Stamparatus to position the stamp from Daffodil Daydream so that the daffodil is centered in the die-cut cardstock, stamp it in Mossy Meadow ink, color the edge of the corona (cup) in Dark Flirty Flamingo and the rest of the corona (cup) in Dark Pale Papaya Stampin Blends. I used a Light Pale Papaya around the edge of the stamped daffodil image.
2. Use the large framelit die from the Tasteful Labels Dies to die-cut from Vellum cardstock, this will be layered under the above die-cut.
3. Enough of the Fine Art Ribbon to tie around the DSP/Mossy Meadow cardstock layers into a knot.
4. One of the 5mm Brushed Brass Butterflies, not pictured.
I adhered the DSP/Mossy Meadow cardstock and Very Vanilla/Vellum layers together, tied the Fine Art Ribbon around the DSP/Mossy Meadow cardstock layers into a bow, I adhered the layered Very Vanilla/Vellum layered die-cuts over the ribbon with dimensionals, placed the Brushed Brass Butterfly as shown, adhered this layered piece to the DSP base layer, and then adhered this completed piece to a Thick Very Vanilla cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, I cut a ¾” strip from the 3” x 4” piece layered DSP design that was leftover to adhere along the side, and stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink:
For the coordinating Very Vanilla envelope, I used the butterfly stamp from Daffodil Daydream to stamp three consecutive times in the corner with Mossy Meadow ink:
Such an easy card to make! If you are curious, after making six of these cards I was left with one piece of the base layer design measuring 1 ½” x 12” and four pieces of the layering DSP design, two pieces at 4 ½” x 2 ¼”, one piece at 3” x 4”, and one piece at 1 ½” x 4”. After looking at these pieces, you should be able to make two more cards! The Tasteful Labels Dies and the Fine Art Ribbon are both retiring, so they will only be available while supplies last! While these are great sentiment dies, there are some super fun new dies in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, which I’m sure you will love! I was able to add one of these die sets to my pre-order, so stay tuned for Monday as I will be sharing the few little goodies I did decide to order, which of course are the new 2022-2024 In Colors!
