2013 Easter Cards - Part 2

Here are more of the Easter cards made this year. As mentioned yesterday, I used this template, created by Kathy at Splitcoaststampers, to make both Easter and birthday cards this month. One Sheet Wonder (OSW) templates are a great way to create a lot of cards in a short amount of time. You can see her beautiful samples here.

As her template was for a 6x6 sheet of paper yielding six cards, and my paper was actually 8x8, I netted 10 to 12 cards per sheet of designer paper. You can also see them on her blog.  

Here are another five examples of the cards made. Remember: I had multiples of some designs. Oh--for some reason the teal designer paper in the bottom two photos looks lighter than the first three pics, but it is in fact the same paper.

Here are close-ups of the two cards shown above:

PAPER: Cafe Mediterranean (DCWV)
INK: None
ACCESSORIES: Paper flowers (Hero Arts and Prima), Brads, Grosgrain ribbon, Computer-printed greetings, Word Window punch (Stampin' Up)

I love the way the flowers come together, particularly in the last one.

Thank you! I thought I had a lot more variety of the flowers than I do, so was glad to find some that worked with this color scheme. And wouldn't you know--I was at JoAnn's last weekend and completely forgot to see what they had.

I'm going over my budget for the year, and was surprised by how many receipts I have for JoAnn's.

It's a good thing JoAnn's, Michaels and Archivers aren't close by. I spend enough at Wisconsin Craft Market, with what little I do spend on craft supplies. Of course, if I time my visits right, I get a family discount at WCM (aunt works there).
