Spellbinder and Crafty Secrets Vintage Easter Wishes

Hello and Good Afternoon! Today I have a couple of Easter cards to share with you. Both of these cards were gallery projects for Spellbinders™. Also there is no stamping on either of the cards! Instead of stamping I used beautiful vintage images from the Easter Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets.Here is the first card I created. I started by creating a border for the bottom of the card using the Wizard™ and Easter Border Petites S4-237 die template from Spellbinders™. After I cut/embossed the border I left the die template in place and used as a stencil to ink through the paper and then I added a light yellow panel to the backside and some glitter to the front of the border. The vintage image is from Easter Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets. I added some baby blue Flower Soft and glitter to the image. Then I diecut the tags using Fancy Tags-S4-235 die templates and the Wizard™ from Spellbinders™. I also added a little more glitter to the tags and a couple of pearls. To adhere the glitter I used the Quickie Glue Pen from Sakura. The Quickie Glue Pen is fantastic for fine line detail when added glitter.

Here is the second card. I started by making a decorative border for the bottom of the card. I used the Wizard™ and Easter Borders Petites S4-237 and cut/embossed a border in each of the colors shown. This is how I was able to get all the different colors in the border. I applied the white border to the bottom of the card and added all the different colored drop out pieces from the other borders and then added so glitter. The image is from the Easter Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets. I cut out the image and added glitter and then I layered it onto two diecuts. To adhere the glitter I used the Quickie Glue Pen from Sakura. The oval diecuts were made using the Wizard™ and Petite Scalloped Ovals Large S4-139 and Labels Ten S5-022 die templates from Spellbinders™. I airbrushed on the Labels Ten S5-022 die template using the Copic airbrush system and marker B02, Robin's Egg Blue. I layers the image and ovals using foam mounting tape and I also added to lace, trim and buttons.
