Let’s Make an Easter Card

I have been waiting since last year to use the “Easter Scene” stamp from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps. I spotted it in the shop and couldn’t wait to use it, but time got away from me. And I can only make so many Easter cards in one year! But I really wanted to get this card made while the stamp is still on sale in the shop. Keep reading below for all the details on the sale happening in the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps shop this month and how I created this handmade Easter Card!

A handmade Easter Card! Made with rubber stamps from Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps.

Making the Handmade Easter Card

This handmade Easter card was pretty simple to put together! I have been waiting to use the Easter Scene stamp for a year now and I am so happy with this handmade card!

Like I said above, I knew I wanted to use the Easter Scene stamp. And this little scene really reminded me of something you would see in an older story book. I could see it colored in with a very light wash of color, and I was thinking watercolor. So I stamped the image with Versafine Clair in Nocturne onto watercolor paper.

The easiest way for me to watercolor is with my Arteza Brush markers, but the only probelem was they are SO PIGMENTED! It can be difficult to get soft colors with them. In order to get that washed out look I scribbled the color onto a palette and picked up the color with my water brush. Be sure to watch the video above for some tips and tricks!

Watercoloring this easter scene was so much fun! I wanted it to have an old time storybook feel with light washed out colors. I used my Arteza Brush Markers and really diluted them!

To finish this scene I die cut it with an oval die. I also added a kraft frame to help set it aside from the background. This is such an easy technique and I use it often! All you need is a nesting die set and layer two dies together.

Then, I taped the stamped panel and frame together on the back with Scotch tape. Doing this keeps the two together easily, so I can pop them up onto the card base with dimensional adhesive!

Adding the frame to the watercolor scene helps give it that final storybook feel! It also helps highlight the scene on this handmade card.

I’m not going to spend too much time on the background of this card. I shared this fun technique in a blog post and video tutorial which you can find HERE!

To put it simply, it’s a watercolor gingham background. I used It’s a Girl ink from Catherine Pooler for that soft pink color!

A simple sentiment is perfect for the finishing touch on this handmade Easter card.

The final addition was of course the sentiment. The majority of the time I forget the sentiment until the card is done. This was one of those time! My go to fix when I do that is stamping a sentiment onto a flag banner and the Tiny Words sentiments are such a lifesaver! I use the Blessing sentiment to finish this card.
