Easter Lily Cards

For this year's Easter cards, I made a cut file in Silhouette Design Studio software with a circle cut out for the card base and then made a circle frame cut file to add to the front of the card. I then chose a lily graphic from CreativeFabrica.com and imported it into my Silhouette Design Studio software to size it up and make a print and cut file of it. I chose "He has risen just as He said" word art from the Silhouette Design Store, and I changed the colors to match the lilies and the circle frame I wanted to use on the cards. I stamped "Happy Easter" on the inside of the cards using a retired CTMH stamp. I made nearly 200 of these cards for my mom and me to send out this year, so I needed a design that was easy to create on a large scale. The original idea for this card design came from Tami White here: 🔴 Unleashing Creativity: Crafting Circle Wreath Cards with Stampin' Up Easter Lilies (youtube.com). I changed up the sizing to suit my needs (I wanted to be able to make two card bases out of a sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 card stock), but I got the idea for a circle card from her.





Here's a look at the inside:

  1. I used to have a subscription to Creative Fabrica when I made custom shirts and insulated tumblers, I'd completely forgot about all the wonderful graphics there. Your card design is unique and the florals are so pretty. Thanks for sharing with us at The Beautiful Blossoms Challenge. We love seeing all the creativity!
