…any other woman can surmise her thoughts

Sharing a set of four Easter gift cards I made featuring the Echo Park Hello Easter collection and Rabbit die from Cottage Cutz.

This is my second project for my guest DT spot over at Aunty Vera’s and features some of the awesome products in the March Hippity Hoppity Kit.  I decided I would use the included twine from the kit to stitch on my cards.  My first two feature cross-stitching, which was by far the easiest of the stitching I did.  We won’t talk about the green one and my failure to adhere to the cardinal rule of cross-stitching to have all the stitches go in the same direction!  I finished off the cards with elements from the Hello Easter Ephemera Icons pack, a die cut rabbit and some bunny brads.

My third card I decided to stitch in some of the flower detail on one of the papers.  This was hard given how small the flowers were and how thick the twine, some of those stitches are still visible only through a wish and a prayer before I adhered the stitched panel to the card base given the tearing that happened!  But I think it turned out pretty good in the end.

For the final one I stamped the egg image from the included Neat & Tangled Eggstra Special stamp set and then set about stitching it.  After the mess of the floral piece it was pretty clear I wasn’t going to be able to also stitch in the ribbon detail.  So I stamped the image several times on red cardstock and just paper pieced that in.

The embellie elements on my cards are all popped up on foam tape so I am entering my gift cards in the current challenge at Southern Girls.  As my cards feature cute rabbit images I am also linking up at the spring cuties challenge at Cutie Pie.  My Time to Craft also have an Easter themed challenge running so I am entering my cards there too.
