Quick and Easy Easter Card

I’m so glad you found me today! Welcome to my blog. I made these cards with just a few simple supplies:  paper, cardstock, stickers, border punch and adhesive. There was only 1 optional thing, a greeting stamp for the inside greeting. I trimmed the pattern paper to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and the solid paper about 3.75″. You can totally eyeball the solid paper! Then I adhered them to my card base with double sided adhesive. Finally, I placed some puffy stickers on the front and I was good to go. You can watch the process on the YouTube video below. The products I used are listed here. The links are free and I get a small percentage of the sale for any products you purchase because I am an Amazon.com and Scrapbook.com affiliate ;0)

 

 

 

Quick and Easy Greeting Card with Patterned Paper and Foam Stickers

Patterned paper and stickers go a long way when you need a quick and easy DIY greeting card! Plus, it’s a great way to use up any leftover supplies. Since it’s spring, I chose some colors that fit the theme, namely lavender and spring green. To “pretty” the paper up a bit and provide more definition between the pattern and solid color, I punched a heart border using an American Crafts border punch system. Adding a thin strip of white cardstock under the heart border makes them stand out. Although I used white here, you can choose any color that coordinates with the stickers and paper you are using. Each of the three flower stickers have white dots on them which echo the dots on the patterned paper. The only thing left to do is adhere everything to the card base. I chose a heavy cardstock because my stickers were made of foam and therefore a bit heavier than traditional stickers. That’s it! You’re done ;0)

Enjoy the video below. Most of the products I used on this card were from my leftover supplies, so I can’t link them for you. Feel free to rummage through  your stash and find what works for you. Don’t be limited by flowers. If you’re making a card for a child, you can use animal stickers. Your imagination is the only limit here!
