I made this card for my little nephew and he was so very excited when he received it in the mail. His mom, my niece said he was so proud, at 3 years old to have received a card made especially for him. Very easy to make! This is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card. The images are cut from the "Just Because Cards" Cricut cartridge. I used lite blue card stock for the base, then a red polka dot card stock cut 1/4 smaller than the base. The tree is basic green, brown and red card stock. The truck is a basic dark blue, light blue, brown and white card stock. I improvised with the road; it's just a simple grey, black and yellow strip cut to size. The Easter eggs are made from a simple little egg stamp I pick up for $1.00 at a hobby store. Use your imagination; the truck, tree, and road can be almost any color! This was a fun, fun, fun card to make and it only took me about 1 1/2 hours!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Ribbon
  • Faux pearls
  • Non toxic art paint

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

First decide the size card you want to make. I cut a 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 card. On top of that I cut a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" light blue card stock, then red small polka dot card stock 1/4" smaller than the lite blue card stock. Using the Cricut "Just Because Cards" cartridge I cut the truck which is about 3" wide by 1 1/2" high from a basic dark blue, lite blue, brown and white card stock. The tree w/swing is also a basic green, brown and red card stock and is only about 1" high. Make sure your blade is sharp for cutting small pieces. For the road; I improvised with grey, black and yellow card stock. I simply cut a grey strip to fit the truck then over laid a strip a black and cut small strips of yellow! The Happy Easter sinage was typed from my computer using blue letters and printed on white card stock! Simple and very fun to make, especially for kids!
