Easter Card using Ariana paper pack

This months challenge was to create using the Ariana paper pack.  I thought this Ariana paper pack was perfect for a pretty Easter card so her is what I came up with.

Cut cotton candy cardstock to 5 ½ x 4 ¼ and  2 3/8  x 3 3/4”

Cut Ariana paper to 2 1/8 x 3 ½”

Cut Daisy White cardstock to 4 x 10 ½” score at 2 5/8 and 5 ¼” and fold

Cut circles using the either the Artiste Cricut Cartridge– Daisy White at 2 ¼” (real dial), Pear at 2 ¾” (real dial) and the Crystal blue at 3 ¼” (there are several options for dolly type cuts on the Artiste cartridge, I happened to use a spellbinders die for this one).

Mount score Daisy White cardstock onto Cotton Candy base.  Mount smaller piece of Cotton Candy cardstock onto the front of the card.  Mount the Ariana paper onto the Cotton Candy.  Stamp the Daisy White Circle with Sentiment and place second sentiment on interior (using Crystal Blue ink) of card along with flowers (stamped in Crystal Blue and/or Cotton Candy).

Stamp two additional flowers onto a scrap of Daisy White using Cotton Candy and Crystal Blue ink and cut out and add Bitty Sparkles to the center of the flowers and mount these on your sentiment circle.

Adhere ¼ of the blue circle to the left side of the front of the card being careful not to allow adhesive to go past the score line.  Mount the Daisy White circle with your sentiment to the Pear circle and then mount these to the top of the Crystal Blue circle using 3-D foam tape to add dimension.
Finally, don’t forget to stamp your envelope to give your project a finished look.
