Happy Easter


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

We have a brand-new release of dies in the online store. It's our Flowers & More release. The individual dies are currently on sale for 30% off. This release has what we are calling "simple cuts". Meaning not as many pieces to put together so they assemble quickly.

They are so perfect for the many card making occasions that we all have. Birthdays, Thank You, Sympathy, Mother's Day or even a scrapbook layout just to name a few. Today for your viewing pleasure, I am featuring some of our older Spring release dies and I created an easy Easter card. 

I started my card with the colors from this week's color challenge on Splitcoaststampers #938. We were to use flirty flamingo, pear pizzazz and crushed curry for our color trio. Optional was to add any 4th color. I used gorgeous grape for my additional color.

My card was inspired by an ad for an off-brand stamp company I saw on Facebook. I decided to recreate it with the challenge colors and CottageCutz dies to make it my own.

I thought the colors had a definite Spring vibe so I went with the Easter card idea. This one is a mini-slimline.
Grape Card Base: 6 1/4 "x 3 3/4"
White layer Panel: 6 1/8" x 3 5/8"
Grape Ombre Designer Paper: 6" x 3 1/2"

I used the Stitched Alphabet die for my Easter phrase. I cut the letters in the challenge colors using different dotted designer paper. 

I layered the letters on gorgeous grape ombre specialty paper. I loved all the sparkle this paper has. The Happy phrase is part of the Happy Easter Greeting die. This die also includes the bunny ears. I cut the ears in flirty flamingo and placed them above the letter A.  The happy word is cut from pear pizzazz cardstock.

The bunny feet are part of the Bottoms Up Bunny Baker die. That's it for today's sample. See you again on Saturday.
