Easter Candy

Welcome to a new week at My Grafico Crafts!  Our theme for our current challenge is Easter or Spring. Entries will be accepted until March 30th, midnight.  We have a wonder feature this week – Easter Candy and Cakes set by Cupcake Cutiees Designs. Our design team has come up with some great ideas using this set. Take a look HERE.

I will certainly be using this set many time in the next few weeks! Here is my DT post:


The card front as well as the inside left of this card, are actually note cards that I have had for awhile. I used a Stampin Up stamp for the clear bag and the jelly beans. First, I stamped the acetate with Staz On brown ink, then fancy cut it. I also stamped this bag on white cardstock then randomly stamped jelly beans. The jelly beans and bow were colored with Copic Markers.  I fancy cut the bunnies and pasted them over the jelly beans. To attach this acetate bag, I punched tiny holes on each side of the bow and threaded the pink ribbon then tied in into a bow. The inside sentiment was computer generated.

Materials used:
Note Cards, Ribbons: Michael's
DP: From my used paper treasures!
Images: My Grafico, Stampin Up

This was such a fun card to make and so easy too! I was happy to be able to use materials that I already had. Look into your unused treasures and you will be surprised what you can use!! (I file my larger pieces of DP in a large accordion file folder). I found that using the Four Seasons as titles as well as one section that includes: graduation, wedding and babies works for me. I would love for you to share your organization tips too.
Thanks for visiting. I hope that I inspired you to create an Easter/Spring card. When you have completed your paper craft project, just click HERE to enter the current challenge at My Grafico Challenges.
