A few more Easter cards

 I made up a few more Easter cards for my stash!!  These two were created using one used greeting card with beautiful crocuses on it.  I cut around the crocuses from the front of the card and layered it on an embossed purple card front and added a layered punchie greeting.  
For the second card I used the image on the inside of the card and trimmed it to size.  I added a yellow organza ribbon to which I tied a short length with one knot to simulate a bow.  I glued this large element to a purple card front.  I added a laser printed layered punchie greeting to the lower right.   

For this card, I layered two coordinating pieces of decorative paper to a purple card front and overlaid a white ribbon where they met.  I cut a slit in the spine of the card with my slot punch (SU) so I could insert my ribbon before gluing both ends to the inside of my card with double sided tape.  I stamped an Easter greeting in dark green (SU) and punched it out with a 1.75" punch (SU) and then layered it onto a purple scalloped circle which I cut with my Nestibilities.  I sponged the edges of my greeting before gluing it to my circle and then adhered this element over the ribbon using 3D foam tape.  I love this crocus paper!! Reminds me of heading out in the spring with my aunts on the farm to find the wild crocuses!!
