Hybrid Highlight - Easter Cards

Hey there! Jen Tapler here with a hybrid post for ya today. In case you missed it (since we've completely ignored the holiday here on the blog this month - ha!), the Easter holiday is quickly approaching. But there's still plenty of time to whip up some cards and get them in the mail (or the baskets) to let a few special people know you're thinking of them this time of year. So I thought I'd share a couple of quick and easy cards I made recently using 2 of my favorite of Libby's Easter kits to inspire you to get out some cardstock (for the card base), some glue and get creative!!

I used Cottontail on this first card, adding some die-cut plaid flowers with a button center and grosgrain ribbon for embellishment:

And this second card (my personal favorite) uses Libby's latest Easter kit, Dye Job. I cut out the Easter title with my hobby knife and popped it up on foam adhesive for dimension, then added 3 turquoise buttons to the bottom corner. Super easy!

That's it! Either of these cards could be easily mass produced, or created completely in Photoshop and printed out in a flattened jpeg version ready to mail to make things even faster and easier (but personally I like the added dimension of physical embellishments and paper layers on my cards). I hope these have inspired you to create your own Easter cards this week and get them in the mail - time is running out!!
