Countdown to Confetti Day #2

It’s day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti, and I have a new project to share with you. I feel like I checked so many boxes with this bold Easter Card, and it wasn’t intentional.

One of the great new stand alone confetti cuts this release is this incredible Diagonal Scallop Cover Plate. It’s perfect for creating backgrounds. I had planned to use the colors from the brand new March MoodBoard for this project, so when it was time to pick a color scheme, there was very little question.

 I selected a deep blue cardstock to cut my panel from, and inked around the edges with chipped sapphire distress oxide ink. It’s not overly noticeable, but I wanted the center to be slightly lighter in color. Next, I inked up some white Bristol Smooth Cardstock in shades of pink and yellow to create a soft ombré background to peek through the scallops. I splattered the panel with clean water, and white and gold ink.

I stamped the beautiful tulip flowers and vases from the new set Tulips, and colored them all in in shades of soft yellow, pinks, and blue with my copic markers. After diecutting, I added white dot highlights to my images. I mounted some of the images onto die cut fun foam to make thick, 3D like stickers. I use this technique often, I love the dimension it gives my projects.

I played with the placement of the images, and had originally planned on using one of the sentiments on a banner. But after seeing the the available space on my card front would accommodate another stand alone die, I couldn’t resist! I used the Happy Easter confetti cuts to cut out this fantastic single piece shape. I cut it from gold cardstock and from some more fun foam to balance out the card.

The scripty font is wonderful, and as I’m typing this up, I realized it’s the same font as yesterday’s Perfect Timing set. I adhered everything to my card front using simple liquid glue. Once it was all in place, I used some more of my favorite luxury matte gold sequins.

Thank you so much for dropping in. I hope you stop by again tomorrow and don’t forget the big blog hop on the 8th.
