Spring cards


I don't really do Easter being more pagan than Christian. But I do love spring and can't resist celebrating the new shoots. I made these little cards as a batch which I don't usually do, but it worked really well and I'll definitely do it again. What I won't be doing again is trying to cut lovely thick mulberry paper with a paper punch, it very nearly knackered it. These would have been even nicer if I had actually used my egg shaped template not just an oval. I am particularly chuffed that I used up another ten of those naughty paper flowers (only 190 to go!)

Don't worry - Easter is thoroughly pagan - all about fertility rites and so on, so there's no conflict with genuine Christianity at all!=) LOL!

Lovely work!

beautiful cards... and as Elisabeth said, Easter has pagan roots... just like about every other 'Christian' festival/holiday etc. Notice how a lot of them fall on an equinox or something??
