Easter Cards

I don't make a lot of Easter cards - just for close family who we don't see regularly. I like to retain a religious aspect to the design, but also to keep a 'spring' theme. Unfortunately, most of the available digis and stamps tend to either be very religious or veer off to chicks, eggs and, oddly enough, rabbits. (I don't really 'get' the whole Easter Bunny thing - it seems to be a recent innovation and I do my best to avoid it!) So, I decided to design my own cards from scratch, using some pretty floral papers from the Flower Power CD Rom I've had for a few years.





I played round in Photosho elements until I got the toppers the way I wanted them, and, after printing, layered as you can see. To finish, I made some punched flowers.

They are all very beautiful. They remind me of country patchwork. Nice to see traditional cards. Thank you for your visit Josephine.
