While we send out great many Christmas cards each year, no other holiday comes close to that. I used to send Valentines, Easter cards and so forth, but nowadays almost the only big patch of cards I send out are the Xmas greetings. But I still make cards to various occasions and if we happen to visit a friend during the holiday, I shall pick one of those to take with us.
Yellow is the colour of Easter for me. Each spring I also have an urge to get something yellow around me – like cushions, curtains, candles or something! I usually eye some yellow clothes, too, but have learned that even though I’m really drawn to them during spring time, I don’t use them as I stick to my regular wardrobe of black, black and black.
I first created some mixed media flowers for these yellow cards using a die cut flower. I then treated the shape with different mediums like gesso, acrylic paint and embossing powders. I then layered some beautiful 7 Dots Studio papers from different collections to the back the flower up and added some mixed media touches in the background as well.
If you want to see how I made the cards, please see the video I recorded while working with the cards!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a pleasant Easter time!
