What’s up, crafty peeps? Jen here, with my first post for the Cat Pack. I'm just so thrilled to be here playing with the fun and fabulous products in the March Release!
I’ve combined old and new with this first card, using the Rabbit & Wreath Digi/SVG and the Grassy Patches SVG. First, I created a green, blue, and brown background using Distress Oxides, a gelli plate, and some background stamps. I thought that would give my cut outs a little more character than just using colored paper or sponging ink on white cardstock. The reason I went dark brown for my bunny was so I could use one of my all-time favorite Easter sentiments–a retired TCP sentiment–“Follow the bunny, he has the chocolate.” But have you seen the “What’s invisible and smells like carrots?” sentiment in the Happy Easter Digi? HA! I get a kick out of that one.
I had plenty of green background, so I found myself with some extra grassy patches–a perfect setting for this card:
Hmmm…this might be my new favorite Easter sentiment. This card uses the Sugar, Sugar Digi and the Easter eggs from the Easter Eggs in Basket Cutable SVG. I thought that some foiled eggs would certainly look like small sugar-coated packages. I arranged all the Easter eggs in Canvas Workspace to cut myself a stencil using my Brother ScanNCut. Then I applied deco foil transfer gel through the stencil. After it dried I ran it through my laminator with the Rainbow Shattered Glass deco foil. I also used my ScanNCut to cut the bunny in the basket.
I have a thing about the leftover foil. Every time I foil something, the leftover looks so appealing. That led me straight to this next card:
I applied the leftover foil to a deco foil toner sheet. When I cut the stencil, I couldn't bring myself to throw out all the little Easter eggs. I knew I saved them for a reason. I colored all the eggs with my Spectrum Noir Markers and popped them up on the foiled background, shifting them all a bit, so that the black would give them a bit of a shadow. I finished it by popping up the Happy Easter from the Happy Easter Digi. And just like that, all my Easter cards are done--thanks to these very inspiring products! I hope you're inspired too!
