There’s still time. If you want to make a quick Easter card that is. I used the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set  to make this card to send to some friends.

I also made this card for this week’s Global Design Project. I have to admit, it was a real challenge for me, The task was to create a monochrome card, not something I would ordinarily do!

Design Notes for Itty Bitty Greetings Card:

This card contains some of my favorite things! I love the butterfly die from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits set. The Country Floral is currently my favorite, most versatile, embossing folder. I’m generally not a fan of purple but I think with all of the white, I like the Gorgeous Grape here. The card itself is pretty straightforward. It occurred to me while I assembled the card, that is a real lesson in using adhesives.

First, I used Tear & Tape when adhering the embossed piece to the Gorgeous Grape layer. Whenever you have an embossed piece, but sure to use a sturdy adhesive to adhere the bumpy layer.

Next I used some Glue Dots to adhere the ribbon. Really, it’s the easiest way to add ribbons.

Finally, I used some Mini Dimensions to adhere the sentiment. It’s pretty narrow so the Mini Glue Dots were perfect.

I also used some SNAIL to adhere Gorgeous Grape piece to the card base.

Oh, my final step was not an adhesive but a way to add just a touch of glimmer. I used Wink of Stella on the butterfly just to add that feeling of lightness.
