Diva Blog Hop April - Flowery Easter





In spite of the many inches of snow outside in central Minnesota right now, there can always be blooming flowers when you stamp. 

I love this simple Stampin' Up! stamp set Blessed Easter 133212 in the Occasions catalog.  You can simply stamp the image. You can color it. You can emboss it. The greeting says "Wishes for a Blessed Easter". In my card It is covered up by the flaps. I made the flaps using the Scallop Tags topper punch. 

Wanting a different twist on traditional pastel Easter colors I chose Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, and Garden Green. I also used the dotted embossing folder which was available for FREE during Sale-A-Bration and will be available in the new catalog on June 1.  Watercolor Wonder paper 132994 availale until May 31st in the Occasions catalog.  

For the flaps I used one long piece and punched both ends of the T Tango with the 133324 Scallop Tag topper punch.  And for a little flair I used the gold bakers twine 132975 and 132974 for the silver.
