Today I have another Easter Card to share.  I'm slowly working on building up my Easter Card supply.  Good thing I don't need too many, and thankfully Easter comes a little later this year!

I used the Scrappy Strip Technique again for this card.  I first used this Technique on a Card back in February.  Check it out!  They don't look anything alike!  This is such a terrific way to use up scraps of cardstock.  Today I used scraps from Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper.  This beautiful paper is retiring soon, so rather than hoard it I thought I would use some of it for my Easter cards.

The Hexagon Shape that I used as the backdrop for my flower was made with the Beautiful Shapes Dies from the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  The gold trim around the hexagon is from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack and it fits the largest Hexagon Die perfectly.

The flower used on today's card is the medium sized flower from Prized Peony.  It was colored with Polished Pink Stamping Blends and the leaves were colored with Just Jade Blends.  I first colored the flower center with Gray Granite Stampin' Blends, but then added just a little bit of strategically placed Basic Black to deepen the color.

I embossed the Just Jade background on the card front with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.  This embossing folder is on the LAST CHANCE LIST.  It has been my go-to embossing folder whenever I wanted just a little texture, but not so much texture that it took away from the card.  I am certainly going to miss this one!

When I used the Scrappy Strip Technique, I found that I like to make the piece larger than required.  Not only does trimming the piece down to the final size help to clean up the edges of the main piece, but if you plan ahead, you can have a large enough "scrap" to use as a trim piece somewhere else.  I made the piece for my card front about 1" taller than I needed so I ended up with a nice clean 3/4" strip to use on the inside of my card.  Pretty, right?

My sentiments are from a very old, retired Easter Stamp Set called Indescribable Gift.  As I mentioned on Monday, I discovered I don't have any current Easter sentiment stamps, so I went to my retired stash and found a couple.  I have a tough time getting rid of sentiment stamp sets, and this time I'm really glad I had a couple retired Easter sets to fall back on!
