Peggy Loves Vintage - Easter card with Vintage Image


Hi friends!! Hope you're having a wonderful week! I'm tickled pink that I'm getting some Easter cards done and actually finished on the inside so I can mail them out on time!! Can you believe I'm still sticking to my New Years resolution to complete the inside of my cards before I put them away? I'm so proud of myself!! LOL!  Todays card features an adorable vintage image from none other than the fabulous Peggy from Peggy Loves Vintage!! She's got some new cutouts in her shop that feature fabulous Easter/Spring images! If you've never used Peggy's images before, you'll be amazed at how quickly you can make a wonderful card. You just choose your image, print it whatever size you want to fit your card,  mat it, and then embellish your card however you want to.


For my card today, I matted this adorable image on Bazzill cardstock, and the DP is from Basic Grey Green at Heart. The frame they're on was created using a Nestability die, and a Fiskars punch was used for the vertical panel down the left. It's a smaller size, but the shape is the same as the Nestie.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used a Martha Stewart branch punch around them. I topped it off with a new Magnolia sentiment and a bow with a bunny charm, and called her done.


Please be sure and pop by Peggy Loves Vintage to check out her new Easter/Spring cutouts, or if you prefer, you can visit her on Ebay, or on her Web store.  Be sure to check out her blog too and become a follower! She LOVES to give away free vintage images!  Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Hi Sharon,
You're on a roll and gosh do I love this vintage-y Easter card. The image is so cute and it goes so well with your papers, which I love that you used inside and out of your card! Such cheerful colors!

How cute is this one? Adorable! Reminds me of the cards I used to get as a little girl from my Grandma. Where do you buy your Nesties?

Sweetest little card made with a super easy image. How fun is that !
Those images really are too cute & would be great to have for making quick cards or for any time. Love your wonderful frame & pretty papers & that signature bow. I made one today with my Bow Easy & that wonderful May Arts silk ribbon that you were so kind to send me for my birthday & I am hooked !! It's simply scrumptious !!! Can't wait to use it on my card ...
Thank you my friend ...
Hugs, Janie

This is a cute image, Sharon - they look like they're "conspiring" about something -- maybe where all the jellybeans are hid? Lovely layout and great colors !!
