"I Love Easter"

He Is Risen! Happy Easter, everyone! I hope you get the chance to enjoy this day with those you love the most.

Here is my Easter themed card today for Our Kreative Karma. :) I had a step by step pictorial for you all, but for some reason my computer is just not cooperating with the pictures, so unfortunately, I will just have to explain what I did without the pictures.

This is a 5.5 by 5.5 inch square card. The card base is green, with a 5.25 by 5.25 inch white layer. On the back of the white piece of cardstock, I divided it into quarters using a ruler and a pencil. Then, I divided those quarters into quarters. I did this so that I could try to get my circles punched as evenly as possibly. You could also do this with a Cricut or Cameo and avoid the measuring all together. Or, if you're REALLY feeling adventurous, you could just "eyeball" it.

After I punched my holes, I layed the layer over the card base and traced where my holes would be, so I knew where to place my embellishments. Add whatever you would like to the little peep holes, then add your top layer, but remember to erase your pencil lines first.. To finish it off, I added some yellow and orange embroidery thread, some faux grass I made just by cutting little slits with scissors, and some green bling.

I also decided to "fussy cut" some Easter eggs at the last minute from a piece of ribbon.

The carrots and duck are stickers I got on sale after Easter at Walmart last year. Chances are you can find something fairly similar this year, as well. Or, as I said before, make your own with a die cutting machine. :)

Hope you like the card, and I hope you have a blessed day!
