Flip the Script! Use Stampin' Up!s Picture This Die to Make This Easter Card Background! So Easy, Give it a Try!

Here's a fun and modern Easter card idea for you!

You do ever have a moment where a new idea of something to try just pops in your brain? That's what happened with this card design. I was using the Picture This Dies for another project, and it occured to me to use the left over circles in a new card design. So that is how this Easter card came into being. 

It was one of the cards my customers made in my March Card classes. We used the reverse side of a sheet of the Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper. One side was gray with rain drops but the other side was this glorious watermarked pattern in mainly Flirty Flamingo. I fell in love with the paper and especially how these circles look once they were die cut out.
