Happy Easter everyone, hope you get to celebrate with your families in some way. Can you guess the inspiration for this card? Thats right Mini Eggs, I’m a huge fan of these and would eat them year round if I could find them. At least now with the Chick Dies I can create my own card versions whenever I want.
The chickens and egg come from both the Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick sets, I’m loving the endless combinations of scenes you can make with these characters and highly recommend you pick them up if your a chicken lover.
The greeting comes from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and I’ve used one of the flower stalks as a post for my greeting signpost. The actual sign is made from the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.
Can you guess how many eggs are on the card?
Answer: 59, as the die cuts two eggs at a time thats 30 trips through the Cut and Emboss machine, worth it though dont you think!
Easter is not normally a time for sending cards in the UK but given the present circumstances it might be nice to make some and let those people we can’t see know we’re still thinking of them at a time when families are generally all together. For this Easter card I’ve pulled out the Welcome Easter set which I think has the some of the cutest little animals we’ve had in a stamp set. Although I love the lamb I chose to just use the Rabbit and Chick on todays card.
After stamping both the Rabbit and the Chick in Tuxedo Memento Ink I coloured them with Stampin’ Blends and then carefully fussy cut the out.
I cut a panel of Whisper white cardstock measuring 10.5cm x 6.5cm and on this I stamped my Happy Easter greeting, the tiny little bee and some grass and flowers for my Rabbit and Chick to sit among. I matted this on some Highland Heather cardstock measuring 11cm x 7cm.
The background layer of the card is made from a piece of the Subtles Designer Paper in Soft Sea Foam measuring 13.9cm x 9.5cm adhered to a layer of Highland Heather cardstock measuring 14.4cm x 10cm. This was then adhered to a Whiper white card base.
To finish off the card I added my Rabbit and Chick to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
