Happy Easter! Today’s card is one with simple elegance. I made it from the leftover pieces I had experimented with when I made my Sliding Lock Easter card (which I shared on March 17th). I would’ve timed this to post at the start of the day today, but I had my single-dose COVID vaccine on Friday morning which put me out of commission for awhile this weekend. I’m good now though.
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Basic White Thick Cardstock
- 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored parallel to short side at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4”

- 3-1/8″ x 4-3/8″
- Soft Sea Foam Cardstock

- Die-cut all pieces. Then snip a couple sets of leaves from the wreath.
- Fold the card base in half at the 4-1/4″ score line. Then fold at the 2-1/8″ score line in the opposite direction to form the z-fold card base. Keeping the card base closed add the Pretty Peacock layer making sure that the adhesive to connect it to the Basic White is only on the back of the left half.
- Stamp sentiment on the Soft Sea Foam layer. Then add to the Pretty Peacock layer.
- Add the white flower to the front using a Dimensional. Add the light green flower to the inside using a couple Glue Dots. Add leaves using Glue Dots.

The weather has been warming up here. And having the sun shine longer throughout the days definitely makes those of us in Minnesota excited. Everyone is wearing summer clothes even on days where there is a slight chill in the air. Lots of people are taking walks or getting out on their bikes. And grilled food is a common weekend smell.
A couple fun things are on the horizon for me: the Stampin’ Up!® incentive trip to Maui in May (I’m bringing my husband AND my boys – we are all so excited!) and my $1,000,000 Sales Milestone (total career sales) that will happen any day now! I earned (will earn) both of these because of you! And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Enjoy the rest of your day. I’m going to sign off because it’s time to make our Easter dinner.
