A couple of weekends ago i went around to my crafty friend Jades house to partake in her Easter Card class! It was lots of fun and here is one of the cards that we made:
Onto a 'Whisper White' cardbase we layered a rectangle of 'Bashful Blue' card, onto which we layered a piece of 'Whisper White' which has been run through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Lattice Square Embossing Folder'. The two Easter chicks have been punched out of 'So Saffron' cardstock using the fab 'Two Step Bird Punch':
This punch is FANTASTIC and SO versatile! Now you will notice that we have done something very clever with these little chicks wing, we use the 'Scallop Circle Punch' to create a feathery effect! I glued this birds into place and used a 'Dimensional' to raise the wings and create a 3D effect!
I stamped the little flower (from the 'Create a Cupcake' stampset) using 'Melon Mambo' and 'Pear Pizzazz' 'Stampin' Write Markers' onto a little scrap of card and then cut it out and popped it in place using a 'Dimensional'.
Finally the sentiment is from the wonderful 'Teeny Tiny Wishes' set, inked in 'Melon Mambo' onto some 'Pink Pirouette' card and then punched out using the 'Word Window Punch' (which you may notice i have become a bit obsessed with recently!)
