Retro Easter Cards

This week I had the pleasure to work with this darling Easter Cutout Printable.

 
 
You get 8 different images on the sheet. I decided that some accordion cards would be a great way to use them.
 
 
These are quick and easy to make and it didn't take very long to make them.
 
 
Both of the cards measure 4" tall x 12" across, I scored them every 3 inches giving me 4 folds to work with.
 
After printing out the file, I adhered the entire sheet to a piece of very thin chipboard then cut out each image and inked the edges.
 
The printed layers behind the images all measure 3 1/2" tall x 2 1/2" wide except for the first and last panels on the second card, those are 3 1/4" tall x 2 3/4" wide.
 
 
On the first card I added a sequin topped by a pearl on each corner and a Melissa Frances wooden butterfly sprayed with my eBrush. The second card has a jewel in each corner and a purple butterfly that I added a few pearls to.
 
I eBrushed some white cardstock with pink and purple Spectrum Noir markers for the second card.
 
You can tie them closed with just about anything, ribbon, twine, etc. I used some fluffy string that I have had for several years.
 
Thank you for stopping by to take a look.
