Spring Cottage Easter Card

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday day edition of the Blog.

The new release of Spring dies  are available in the online store and 25% off for a limited time. There are 27 new dies in the release and each one is cuter than the next. They are perfect for your Easter and Spring card making.

Today, I am featuring the new Spring Cottage die to create an Easter card. So let's get started on some details of how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I started this card by cutting all the Cottage pieces. I used different colors of cardstock and just stuck fairly close to the colors shown on the die packaging. They are such pretty Spring colors. For the oval house shape, I did cut that in white cardstock and then used squeezed lemonade distress ink and sponged lightly.
Next, I chose my card colors. I found a small watercolored designer paper that I decided to use for the cottage background. I liked the light shades of blue. I cut it using the largest of the Stitched Scallop Rectangle set. I selected a medium purple cardstock for a layering panel  and the card base is a light purple.

Light purple card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Medium Purple Layering Panel: 3 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Designer Paper Layer: 3 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Stamped the sentiment with a dark purple ink directly on the designer paper panel.

Now that all the card elements are ready, I can start the card assembly. I attached the Spring Cottage using double sided tape.
Then I adhered this panel to the light purple layering panel and again I used double sided tape.
I finished up my card by attaching the panels to the light purple card base. I decided not to add any sequins or enamel dots because I thought there was enough going on with the card. They are my favorite embellishment so it was hard not to add something extra.
Well, that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use this cute die.
It doesn't have to only be for Easter though. You could use this for a Spring birthday or a get well card.
Remember, the new dies are on sale for 25% off. See you next Saturday!
