Well Easter really is just around the corner and whilst it isn’t a holiday particularly associated with card giving, it’s always nice to send something personal and thoughtful to a loved one that you may not see.
I have been making two types of card for Easter this year, those that lend themselves to being not too messy and can be made while entertaining my pre-school daughter. So I’ve carried through my ‘hearts and flowers’ themes, using the collage technique to make Easter Eggs and stamping and colouring Easter Egg shaped flower wreaths on to plain card.
The collage eggs are nice and bright to bring in the feel of Spring – very welcome at the moment as it’s so cold outside! I’ve used bright coloured base cards and added ribbon and a bow to each egg to add that touch of luxury. I’m offering to put personalised greetings on the cards, and I also have a number of cards already made up in packs to buy ‘off the shelf’.
The stamped flower eggs are bright and cheerful with hand-coloured flowers in a variety of spring colours.
I hope you’ll agree they would brighten up an Easter mantlepiece. I know we will certanly be sending some to our far-flung family and friends.
