Quick and Easy Easter Cards with Janice Whiting

If you are looking for our challenge you will find the details HERE

Hi, everyone! Today I have a quick and easy Easter card with a fun background design.  

This background isn't hard at all!  Let me show you how I did it.

First, cut your card stock to 5 1/2" x 9" and score 2 1/4" in on both sides as shown below.

Fold both sides in at the score lines to create your card base.

With a pencil, draw a line from the center of one side to the nearest scored line.  Then, using a ruler, line up one corner of the card base to the point where the pencil line meets the scored line, and score.  

From here, score every half inch in that section.

Do the same on the other section for each side of the card.

Here is what the background looks when completed.

From here you can decorate as desired!  I added some Spellbinder's dies and flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Janice :)
