The Easter cards I've been making for SAS4K these last 2 months are finished. Every SAS4K label I had with me has been used, plus a sheet or 2 that my friend, Sybilla, gave me.
While wintering in Florida, I've been designing cards, cutting pieces, stamping, coloring, and fussy cutting images during the week and assembling them on Saturday mornings at a weekly crop.
Yesterday, as I was approaching the last few cards I was planning to make, I decided it was time to use up some of my paper scraps.
I had quite a few strips of leftovers plus the border strips that come on the edge of the CTMH paper. One by one I glued them, in no particular design, onto a piece of 8.5 x 11 CS, filling the entire sheet. When dry I trimmed the edges, cut it into 4 pieces to make 4 cards fronts. Each of these 4 pieces was then embossed. If you do this before the glue is totally dry, you get a nice deep impression and the papers hold together nicely. Using a variety of nesting dies, I did a bit of die cutting to frame the sentiments. There were still enough scraps to stamp some crazy birds and accessories. Before I called it a day, I fussy cut the birds and their Easter finery, added some marker here and there, dressed and glued the birds together and added liquid glass to all their eyes for dimension and shine.
Are you ready to see my favorite cards from today's crop?
