I am on a kick of easy breezy cards lately. I think it’s the result of my desire to craft as well as get outside and enjoy the wonderful spring weather! I made this Easter card after seeing a cartoon with this caption online. It had me giggling the whole time while I crafted my version using the Easter Die Set from Diemond Dies (sorry, it’s out of stock right now). By the way, Diemond Dies, is having an awesome Spring Sale!!! Now through April 30, 2017 use the coupon code “spring20” on all orders of $25 or more and get 20% off everything (including sale items) and free worldwide shipping!
After rummaging through my scrap box, I found great fun patterned scraps in beautiful secondary but deep/rich colors (I used 10 scraps up! Woot woot!) that I could die cut into a grassy hillside background with the MFT Die-namics Grassy Hills Die and a handful of little chickies with the Easter Die Set from Diemond Dies.
I added little dot eyes to the chickies with a Black Glaze Pen (love the subtle shine and dimension) and shimmery beaks with a Metallic Gold Gelly Roll Pen. I also inked all the edges of each die cut grass, sky and chick with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry or Salty Ocean to add a finished look. I printed out the sentiment from my computer and inked the edges of that too. The whole card front is adhered to a square corrugated kraft card base, which I think adds a nice subtle interest to this simple card.
This was s fun and fast little Easter card, and I love how it came out! I hope you all are having a wonderful spring! This card is being entered into the following challenges:
