Today I have some fun Easter cards that feature Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. I love the cute designs and overall style of Lawn Fawn. It is just so easy to find something for everyone.
The Lawn Fawn Eggstra Special Easter stamp and die sets are just too much fun. Both of the cards feature the Eggstra Special Easter stamps and dies. There are so many elements that can be used to create Easter cards for all ages. There are also a number of basic dies in the Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts collection that can be used to add some fun elements to a card.
For the “Happy Easter” card, I began with an A2 card base in green, cut 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut a blue layer and another green layer using the largest of the Small Stitched Rectangles. I further cut the green rectangle using the Stitched Hillside Borders to create the two layers of grass shown. These are so very easy to cut, and what a cute result! I stamped the “happy Easter” sentiment at the bottom of the front layer of grass. It was heat embossed using Ranger’s Super Fine Clear embossing powder for emphasis. The sun and the clouds were cut using the Hello Sunshine die set. I used the Hello Sunshine stamps and die to make the cute Easter chicks. I’m pretty sure they are meant to be little birds, but I think that they also make cute chicks. I added a little orange Copic marker to them to enhance their little beaks. I stamped the bunny on white and on purple cardstock, and then cut both. I fussy cut the bow from the purple bunny and glued it in place on the white bunny. I added a few pink highlights (nose and ears) using a pink Copic marker. Finally, I made the tulips by stamping and cutting them both out of a green patterned paper and the red polka dot paper. I cut the red polka dot heads and glued them in place on the green tulips. All I needed to do from that point was just to assemble the card. I did that using my Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive.
For the “Earresistable” card, the process was similar. I cut the teal A2 card base 4.25″ x 5.5″. I cut the plaid layer 4″ x 5.25″. I used the Say Cheese die set to cut the cute photo frame in white, and a blue center as a background for the picture. I cut a teal layer just slightly larger than the photo frame (1/4″ added to each side’s dimension, so that only 1/8″ of the teal will show when assembled). The bunny was stamped on brown and on teal. I fussy cut the bow from the teal bunny, and glued it in place on the brown version. I used my pink Glaze pen to add the nose and ear accents. I cut a teal banner using a die from the large Stitched Journaling Card die set. The sentiment “You’re Earresistable” is designed as a long sentiment, stretching almost the entire width of an A2 card. To make it easier to use on the banner, I simply cut the stamp between the words. I used my Ranger Super Fine embossing powder to make this sentiment pop also. I assembled this card using my Angel Craft 1/4″ adhesive. I added the cute teal/white polka dot to embellish.
For additional information on how I made the cards, please see the short video.
These cards were so fun and so easy to make. I love the look that you can achieve by doing the simple fussy cutting and paper piecing techniques. Be sure to check out the many cute Lawn Fawn stamp and die sets that are available on the Cut@Home site. I’m sure that you’ll find a “must have” for your collection.
