Making Cards to Mail

Another color I decided would be nice to use for Easter cards is Wisteria Wonder. On the first card I layered the color by using Wisteria Wonder both for the background color and then again as the scalloped border for the large oval. I also did this so that I could emphasize the satin roses, which I love. But you cannot easily mail a card with the roses because the post office does not like anything that won't zip through their machines. So, I had to devise a way to make this card without the roses. I chose to use a subtly patterned DSP to add interest. Here are the supplies for both cards:

Flirtatious Specialty

Ribbon: Very Vanilla 5/8" Satin

Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Wisteria Wonder

Ink: Wisteria Wonder

Stamp Set: Easter Blossoms

Nestabilities: Large Oval and Large Scalloped Oval

Lissie, they are fabulous Easter cards and the Wisteria is the perfect color. I especially like the first card, the flowers look so pretty tucked into the side of the oval.
