Seed Packet Easter Cards

Seed Packet Easter Cards_1

 

Hello everyone, so glad you’ve stopped by today!

I was inspired by a seed packet photograph I saw on Pinterest today to design this fun little seed packet envelope that I’ve created with these mini Easter cards. Originally I had intended to create a tag, but ended up deciding to make some mini cards instead!

The cards are 2 1/2″ by 4 1/4″ (folded), and feature stamps and dies from Newton’s Nook and Simon Says Stamp. Speaking of stamps… I absolutely the Newton’s Nook “Bunny Hop” stamp set (particularly the bunny-in-a-flower-pot!), and thought it would be so much fun to make Newton sit inside the pot as well!

Below is the video on how I created the “Newton in a flower pot” card, and I hope you enjoy!

 

 

If you are interested in creating these envelopes yourself, you can find the digital file for this envelope (available in SVG, JPEG and PNG formats), in my Nina-Marie Design Shop over on Etsy.
