Easter Joy

Hello again to all my Gerda Steiner friends.

It’s Maureen Hayes, back guest designing with the adorable new Easter/Spring set called Hoppy Easter!  I decided to go all “old school” on you and create a gate fold card and use patterned paper as my background.  I wanted the stamp from Gerda to be the star.  I stamped it on Neehah Solar White 80lb. Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 




Then I grabbed my Derwent Chromoflow colored pencils and started to color my stamped image.  When I was finished I simply fussy cut it out (told I was going all “old school” on you!!) and then I stated to assemble my gate fold card by cutting an 8 1/2 x 11 paper in half and scoring.  I cut my pieces of pattern paper and applied them to the folded card.  Lastly I popped my fussy cut colored image up on the left side using foam adhesive.  I left the right side adhesive free since it works as the tab to open the card.

Here are some pictures of the finished card:

Oh Maureen I love old school! Stamping was fun and simple with old School. The rabbit basket is adorable and your coloring technique top notch. Such a sweet wonderful card. Love the gate fold design.
