I love all things SPRING so decorating for Spring and the Easter holiday is something that I do just for me each year! I found some white plastic double sided frames, quite inexpensive at IKEA, and they inspired my latest home dec/hybrid project!
For this project I chose to work with Kimeric Kreations IT’S A SPRING THING
I loved the color palette immediately, and those lovely butterfly elements caught my eye right away, too! I thought that the kit would also work well for my Easter subway art which I created using phrases collected from cards and other inspiration I found at Pinterest (oh, my … I could spend lots of time there!) Here is what the complete Easter background looks like (since you won’t see the whole thing in the finished project!)
Here is the background that I used for the Spring cards. That lovely Spring wordart is in Kimeric Kreations kit (I altered the color of a few words)
Here are all the cards I created for the Easter side
The bunny is a die cut image.
Here are the Spring cards:
I printed both sets of cards onto Georgia Pacific white cardstock, and then cut them to 4″ x 6″ sections. The frames came with two 4″ x 6″ clear acrylic covers, but since I wanted to add some traditional embellishments to the outside of the cards, I only used one of the acrylic covers in between the two art pieces. I slipped the acrylic into the top of the frame first, and then added the art pieces on either side of the acrylic (which is there for stability – the extra acrylic pieces have been saved for another project!). The “S” for Spring and the first “E” for Easter went into the first frame, and I continued until all frames were filled. After the cards were inserted, I gave each bunny a white pom pom tail, and a ribbon flower to hold in his hand. The Spring side got a yellow paper flower (pre-made since I had a time-crunch!)
The Easter side is now on the table near the entrance of my living room. When Easter is over next week, I will just turn the frames around to show the Spring side until June (and Summer arrives!)
Happy Easter everyone!
