Happy Easter

It's the end of the week and tomorrow is Easter Sunday!  Which means I still have time to share one more Easter treat with you.

I created a double fold card that reminds me much of the old photo display holders.   So it seemed fitting to team this up with some vintage graphics.  Here is the inside view first!

The stamps I used for this project was the Small Trailing Butterflies from The Rubber Cafe.  

You'll find them fluttering everywhere!  I have some on the inside....  and when you close and take a look at the front, I have them all over the front of my project too!.   These are so pretty and fun, and we have them in a Large size as well.  

I stamped some of these directly on the project while others were stamped colored and cut out so I could pop them up for more dimension.  I used Watercolor paper 110 lb wt. throughout this project so it can stand up and be displayed when it's open.  The polka dot print is a 6x6 pack from Melissa Frances.

I paper pierced the edges to add more definition by stitching it with my machine minus the thread!  This is a great way to get evenly spaced piercing that is sometimes challenging by hand.  

Here's another closeup of the inside.

I wrapped ribbon around to close it and added a silver bunny charm from my stash!  For the finishing touch I added some pearl accents.  This could be a great idea for sending a special photo or even maybe a gift card.  Remember not all your cards have to be square or rectangular.  

That's it for now, enjoy your weekend!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: The Rubber Cafe Small Trailing Butterflies
Ink:  Ranger Distress Ink - Pumice Stone, Memento - Cocoa, Copic markers
Paper:  Melissa Frances - Attic Treasures, Watercolor Paper - 110 lb wt
Embellishments: Crafty Secrets Vintage graphics, Pearl accents, Ribbon, Bunny charm
Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe Scrap Happy Glue, and dimensional pop-dots.
Dies: Tim Holtz Vintage Cabinet Card mover shaper die with the Mini Cabinet die to cut the inside window, by Sizzix.
To cut my card, I folded the sides in first so they were just inside the cut edge of the dies, and than ran it through my diecut machine to cut the upper and lower edges.
