Easter Card using Paper Piecing with Adhesive Sheets

Hi everyone, Christine here with an Easter card using Adhesive Sheets 4 x 6″ and paper piecing. Find out how to use up scraps to make this lovely card.

Our Easter here in the UK is spread across the full four-day holiday weekend so I make sure I have a good supply of cards (and chocolate eggs).  Having a speedy card design is perfect!

 Paper Piecing with Adhesive Sheets

Firstly, I delve into my scrap box for various colored pieces of cardstock.  Take off the top liner sheet of a 4×6-in Adhesive Sheet and apply cardstock on to it. I find this size of Adhesive Sheet is perfect for using up my smaller card and paper scraps.

Now die cut with your chosen dies. Do this again with the various colors of cardstock.  Each die cut (and fallout piece) now has a layer of permanent adhesive with edge-to-edge coverage, this makes paper piecing perfect.

My card base has an aperture that I am going to place a design into. I affix two white cardstock mats with the E-Z Runner Grand® Refillable Dispenser.

Next, position and affix the flower die cut to the mat, just a little pressure and it’s fine. I’ve also die cut a further flower from silver mirror card to act as a drop shadow behind.  Using your fall out pieces, begin to paper piece.

Use a pokey tool to help placement, the die cuts will slot into place and because of that adhesive sheet backing, they will stay there!  This is the relaxing part.

Once my design is completed with all paper piecing, I used Crafty Foam Tape White on the reverse to insert inside the card aperture.

Lastly, add a few more of the flower die cuts in white cardstock for the base of the card to finish and a stamped sentiment.
