I hope you have had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. I am a lot better the antibiotics seem to have done the trick. One slight problem is that my hearing has been affected but I think that will be sorted soon.
I have worked out that I need about twenty Easter cards this year. I don't usually make many Easter cards but this year I am working in a bigger team and they seem to like giving cards. Where I have been ill I have got behind with a lot of my projects. So I needed a simple design that I could make relatively quickie - nothing I make is particularly quick.
This is not unlike the design of the Get Well card I made for myself. I don't usually do gutting when I make cards but I had an epiphany with these cards. I was looking at my Tonic basic square dies and realized that I could cut the the smaller mats from the bigger mats. The card blanks I am using are 6" x 6". The dies work well with this size.
This is my cutting plate loaded up with dies this means all the coloured card can be cut in one pass through the Grand Calibur. I wouldn't do this without tapping the dies down in place you wouldn't want them to overlap.
The egg is a Spellbinder die. I used the Heart Lattice embossing folder. The inking was done with a Distress ink. I am making these in lots of different colours.
I was working on these yesterday and I have made them in purple, mauve, blue, green, yellow, and pink. I have tried to keep the colours fresh and spring like.
My plan for Saturday is to work on the wedding invites. My husband is going to help me with the printing and I will make the sample invitation while he is doing that. Then we can arrange another meet up with the happy couple. Have you got any crafty plans?
