Hello and welcome to the We Create April Blog Hop. So happy that you can join us. This month’s blog hop is about Easter. I choose to use the stamp set Easter Friends from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalog.
Now I had to use the little chick or biddy image for my card. Why do you ask? I work for a poultry company – at a hatchery where we hatch the little ones. So I thought it was perfect for my card.
The card base is Evening Evergreen card stock. I also used another piece of Evening Evergreen and embossed it using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder (which is retiring). I use this embossing folder a lot, so it will stay in my stash.
To make the pennant, I used Mango Melody card stock and Flowering Fields Designer series paper. This paper speaks spring..don’t you think?
I used So Saffron ink for the chick image and stamped it on Basic White card stock. For the grass, I used Pear Pizzazz ink. I die-cut the image using one of the layering circle dies and adhered it to a So Saffron scalloped die-cut circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. To pop it up, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere to the pennant. The sentiment is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I fussy cut the sentiment out (I rarely fussy cut anything) and popped it up also using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside of the card and envelope, I stamped the little chick in the corners.
This stamp set, Easter Friends, may stay in my stash if and when it retires. I really do like the little chick.
Well, I do hope I inspired you with my Easter card. To continue along the blog hop, click on the next image to see what Kimberley has made for us today.
