Simple Easter Slimline Card

A Sweet Little Easter Slimline Card.

My favorite time of the year is Spring.  I love celebrating Easter and the new flowers popping out

of the ground and sweet little bunnies and chicks that fill Easter Baskets.

My Simple Easter Slimline Card was made using dies and stamps from The Maker’s Movement.

Making Slimline Cards are so easy with the Slimline Essentials Die Set
from The Maker’s Movement.  Perfect for layering and adding windows.

Just enough space for a simple stamped greeting in the center of the card.

Add a couple stamped and colored images to your slimline layers and you have a simple and quick card.
