Magnolia Tilda & Edwin Easter Card

Happy April, Tootsies!

Were you fooled yesterday? I was fooled into thinking that my knees wouldn't hurt - ha! They do - a bunch! Ugh - the joys of aging!

I have a delightful Easter card to share with you today with is available on ETSY. I cannot believe that Easter has arrived so quickly!

This card featured three Magnolia stamps - the basket, Bunny Tilda, and Bunny Edwin. I've accented their costumes with touches of matching glitter and also did the eggs in Tilda's basket. There is lots of layering and distressing. Aren't the flowers gorgeous? They are from Hooked on Craft. I have listed the items from Hooked on Craft as well as their links below. If you EVER want to invest in beautiful paper flowers, please look at the items at Hooked on Craft. You won't be disappointed!

Let's take a look at the card I made for the Easter Challenge. This challenge will run from April 2 to April 28. So, get your jelly beans all lined up and create something wonderful!

Here is the first photo:



I love the carrot treat boxes and thought they would work perfectly to help set the stage for the Easter card. I know the card is hard to see because of the size constraints. There are close ups below.









Let me take a sec to draw your attention to the flowers. I am so in love with the calla lilies. I chose to use both pink and blue calla lilies for this card. There are also small pink roses, a larger white rose, and perfect white leaves. The other flowers are from my stash. I love the metal charm and the metal eggs. It just adds a special touch.

Here are images of the inside of the card. Aren't the butterfly and felt bunny on the bow too cute? Love 'em!







Here are the related links to the items on my card which are available at Hooked on Craft:

1. White Rose - 20 mm

2. Pink Calla Lilies

3. Blue Calla Lilies

4. Pink Roses - 14 mm

5. white leaves

6. butterfly

7. pearls

I hope you like what I've created. I love the springtime feel. Do come back often to see what I've been up to.

Happy April!

XO,
Chris
