Easter Thank You Card

Hi there!

My parents sent me a card with a couple gift cards in it.  The first one was $50 for Michael's and the next one was $15 to Coldstone Creamery.  I wanted to make them a thank you/Easter card and this is what I came up with.  I think it's missing something.  But alas, it is what it is.  As you can see my inspiration was lacking a little.

The base of the card is 4.25" by 5.5" of white card stock.  I put a layer of light blue down first and then used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors and cut a piece of green cardstock that was 2" by 4.25".  I layered that on the bottom.  I cut out the rabbit from Create A Critter at 4.5" and used an Action Wobble to adhere the rabbit to the card.  I had also cut out a basket but that didn't fit on the card so I didn't use it.  On the inside I used the Happy Easter sentiment from My Pink Stamper.  On the back of the card, I used a "Handmade Just For You By:" sentiment from My Creative TIme.  I also went back and inked the edge of the blue card stock with a Memento Ink Pad.

Craft On,


  1. What a cute card!! The grass looks great using the fringe scissors :-) I'm sure they'll love it, and even more so that you used something you bought with the gift card to make it! Great first tutorial video too!!!

    1. Thanks, Jessica! :) I'll have to remember to tell them in the card that I purchased the fringe scissors with the gift card. :) Thanks for the compliment and booster! I'll be sure to make more videos soon! :)

  2. That is really cute. I loved the video!

    1. Thanks, Amy! And thanks for watching the video. I'm starting to really like making them and taking the time to edit them. :) This could be the start of something good! :)
