Vintage Easter Cards


Today I have a few vintage Easter cards to share with you.  I usually stamp all my images, but since I don't really have too many Easter images I decided to go digital for this holiday.  I hope the recipients won't be too disappointed.

My first project was created using the French Notes and Easter Bunny Collages from Iralamija.  Aren't these bunnies adorable?  I added some Stardust Stickles to the roses.


I used the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents die on the side of the card.  The bunny image was then layered onto a piece of Sky Blue paper.  Happy Easter was stamped in StazOn Stone Gray on a Shimmery White banner.  All the edges were sponged with Distress Antique Linen ink.  The flower was cut twice (once with Sky Blue paper and again with Shimmery White).  An ivory pearl brad fit perfectly in the center.   


This next card was for my friend Veronica.


I ran a piece of Pale Plum paper through the Big Shot using a Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder.  A piece of tea stained seam binding was wrapped around it with a triple loop bow.  An antique brad embellishes the center.  A 4" doily was added then I layered a vintage Easter chicks image from Cottage Rose Graphics.  Stardust Stickles were added to the eggs.  Everything was mounted to a pastel blue card.  


The last card features a darling bunny drinking tea.  Perfect for Easter or a tea party.


This image didn't need anything, but a piece of vintage lace with a teapot charm.


I'm very pleased with how these cards turned out.  It was fun using the digital images.  I hope you find your Easter basket filled with sweet treats!
