Happy Easter!

I am grinning thing of all the Easter Egg Hunts happening today!  These two cards are for two of the Grandkids.  I needed quick and easy to get them all done in time... so lots of paper, minimal coloring and easy to fussy cut!  Made them a little more fun with the fold.

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]

  • This is an A2 size with the fold on the left & the front panel folded back to meet it.  A panel is then prepared & attached as shown below.
  • Designer paper is cut for all the surfaces and taped in place.
  • Focal images were printed out, colored with Copics, fussy cut, sculpted & adhered with foam tape for added dimension.
  • A bow on the chicks head is the only embellishment.

This card should be eligible for the following
