Hi Crafty Friends,
I have an Easter themed Trifold card to share with you today, using stamps and dies from Divinity Designs.
To create my card I started by die cutting the card base using Divinity Designs Tri-Fold Card with Layers die set. For the layers of my card I used one of the papers included in the Slimline Geometrics Paper Pad.
To decorate my card, I added a lily using the new Lily die set from the February/March release.
For the sentiment I used the Easter Words Stamp/Die Duo set using the stamp "Happy" to the top left corner and using the coordinating rectangle dies included in the set. The "Easter" word is die cut using the word die included in the set.
To finish off the card, I added some pearls to the right side and the top.
Here is a look at my card when it is closed, ready to be placed in an envelope.

I have been playing with Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Edger dies lately, so for my card today I pulled out my Champagne Celebration Edger die to make my card today.
For the inside of the card, I added the border to each edge of the card using Crafter's Companion's Wedding Day Edge'ables die.

Hi Crafty Friends,
I have an Easter themed card and treat holder to share with you today, using stamps from Divinity Designs February/March release.
For my card, I created a Peek-A-Boo card using Divinity Designs Peek-A-Boo Card with Layers die set. I decorated the panels using papers from Spring Flowers 6 x 6 paper pad.
The lambs and sentiments are all from the new Lamb of God stamp set. The sentiment on the front of the card is layered using the Ovals and Double Stitched Ovals die sets.
When the card is closed the view from the oval opening is the standing lamb. As you open the card another layer starts to appear through the oval.
When the card is full opened, the original image is replace with something different. In this case a lamb sitting on the grass with a sentiment above it.
To accompany my card, I created a milk carton treat holder using the Milk Carton with Layers die set. I again used papers from the Spring Flowers 6 x 6 patterned paper to decorate the sides of my milk carton.
I added the lamb sitting on the grass to the front of the card using Circles and Double Stitched Circles die sets to layer.

I die cut a pink arrow using Karen Burniston's Waterfall Card die set and adhered it to the centre of the right edge. This tells the recipient to pull in that direction. When you pull the arrow, the front of the card flips to reveal the other side of each panel and a sentiment on the inside.

Hi Crafty Friends,
After a lot of thought on what style of card I would create this year, I decided to create a Building Block Card using my Studio Light Building Block die set. I die cut the base of my card using black cardstock. I used border dies from Lawn Fawns Stitched Hillside Borders die set to die cut the grass portion of the card.
For the layers I used papers from Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes in blue and greens.
To decorate the card I added the Golf Flag which is an older Magnolia Stamps stamp. The golfing peanuts are from an older "Golfing Nutz" stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms Tom Fun Collection.
The tee and golf ball on the middle bottom square are both older Print Blocks stamps.
The sun on the top right square is another older stamp from Print Blocks.
For the sentiments I used the "Fore! Three Two One" sentiment from Rubbernecker, which I cut in half so I could add it to two blocks. The "Have a tee-rific day" is from an old stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps.
My card folds flat and will fit into a 5 inch square envelope.

On the inside of the card I added the cute bunnies from the Bunny Kisses stamp set. This image was layered to the inside of the card using the Squares and Double Stitched Squares die sets.

Late last year Divinity Designs released some cross stitch/embroidery stamp and die sets, including a cross stitch background for both Slimline and A2 cards; embroidery hoop and some cross stitched sentiments. I decided to pull these out to create my card for this challenge.

Hi Crafty Friends,
Today I am sharing a birthday themed Slimline card I created recently.
For my card I used Whimsy Stamps Slimline Twisty Frame die set to create the frame background and the inner panel. On the inner panel I embossed this using Whimsy Stamps Thatched Embossing Folder.
To decorate the inner panel I used Pinkfresh Studio's Charming Floral Border Hot Foil Stamp with the coordinating stencils and die. This piece is foiled using gold foil.
I added a birthday sentiment using Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Plate, this sentiment is also gold foiled this time onto black cardstock.
For the inside of the card, I die cut a white panel using Picket Fence Studios' Slimline Die Cutting System. I also die cut the Slimline Happy Birthday Word Topper from colored cardstock and then gold foiled the "For Someone Special" sentiment on the strip underneath.
On the right side of the card I added part of the negative image of the Charming Floral Border image when I used my Pinkfresh Studio Solid Hot Foil Plate.
