Happy Easter

Hello!  It is time to make some Easter cards...can you believe Easter is almost here?   For this card I was inspired by the photo challenge at The House That Stamps Built shown below.  I used the bright colors and Easter eggs on my design.  The stamps used are from Repeat Impressions Happy set and a 1995 Hero Arts stamp Happy Easter ( just used the word Easter).  I stamped the words on Vellum after coloring with markers and heat embossed with Clear EP.  I cut a window in the yellow card base and attached the Vellum Layer with a Pattern layer underneath.  I finished the inside with layers of White CS stamped and trimmed with a strip of the pattern paper. I left room for a hand written note.

Supplies: Vellum, Yellow CS, White CS, Pattern Paper from scraps, Memento Markers and Ink, Clear EP.

Love the soft look of your card with the Vellum, the Easter Eggs and the Sentiment look beautiful and colorful.
Great way to finish the inside of your card, I've been doing that to all my cards before I post them, it will save a lot of time when it's time to mail them.
