2015 DIY Easter Card


Here is a new Easter Sunday I card made using our Easter Sample Dot-to-Dot on the inside. This cute bunny card is fairly simple and uses every day craft items to create. I am grateful to Linda’s Stampin Loft for the card inspiration. You can make your own using the artwork file on the right and free the puzzle.



Supplies I used:DIY Easter Sunday Card

  • 1 sheet of patterned cardstock for the basket
  • 2 sheets of lighter cardstock for the basket weave pieces
  • 1 piece of 4½” x 6″ colored cardstock for front of card
  • Clip art sheets with eggs and bunny shapes printed on white cardstock
  • 1 8½” x 11″ sheet of heavy white cardstock for base
  • 1 piece of old label backing sheet to keep glue from sticking where it shouldn’t
  • Greatest Dot-to-Dot Sample Newspaper Puzzle for Easter Sunday

Tools I used:

Paper dimensions:

  • Cut 8½” x 11″ sheet of heavy white cardstock down to 6½” x 10″. Score cardstock in half to make card 5″ x 6½”.
  • Cut colored cardstock for front of card (top half) 4½” x 6”.

Additional tricks I use to get dimension.

  • I use two or three water color pencils in different shades of the same color. I use the darkest color near the lines and the lightest in the middle of the image.
  • I drag a waterbrush from the darkest color to the lightest color, keeping the brush damp, not soaked.
  • I color past the images so when I cut them out they don’t have a white edge.
  • I use Tim Holtz Distress inks on the edge of the cardstock and puzzle.
  • I use the Mcgill Paper Blossom Tool Kit to shape the flower pieces into a tail.
  • I lightly sprayed the paper I embossed with water first.  It gives a better impression.
