From Drab to Fab Easter Card

Welcome back crafty friends! Today I have a simple card tutorial to share that can take your patterned paper from Drab to Fab. With Easter right around the corner I have been crafting with bunnies and eggs on the mind lately. I must admit, I don’t have a whole lot of Easter papers in my craft stash, but I did find this simple plaid pattern from an older birthday collection. Here is how I took it from plain and drab to Easter fab on this card.

Fab Easter Card

Making a Drab Card to Fab!

This is the plain plaid patterned paper that I started with. It’s a bit drab, so I thought it needed a little dressing up.

Using the Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8 in, I added adhesive strips up the middle of all of the teal stripes in this plaid pattern.

Next I used a fine glitter and covered all of the Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8 inch strips.

Tap and clean off all of the excess glitter. Revealing the perfect sparkle for this plaid paper.

I added another pink cardstock mat before adhering all of the layers together on a white cards base using my E-Z Runner Ultra Strong adhesive.

The coloured a paintable image, it was matted in teal cardstock and then added to the card using Crafty Foam Tape.

I used alcohol pens to add colour to the paintable image.
