One more Easter card!

I forgot I made one more card! This one isn’t a traditional Easter card, but it still has the spring / Easter feel to it. I used the Create a Critter cartridge to make this one as well.

First I started off with the bird image from page 65. I cut the base in black, layer 1 in light blue, layer 2 in aqua and layer 3 in yellow. All of the cuts were made at 3 1/2 inches. I then assembled the bird by placing layer 1 onto the base and then adhering the wing, flower and beak to the image.

For this icon, the phrase reads “Tweet” with a cloud around it. I used the darker blue (aqua) to cut the image out at 1 1/2 inches. Since I used a small scrap to cut out layer 1, I had enough to line the inside of the phrase so it would stand out a little more. I also used the silver gel pen to make small dots around the outside of the cloud.

When I placed the bird and “tweet” on the 5 x 7 white card, I thought it looked a little plain. I found another larger scrap piece of paper in a textured green and thought the images would look nice on that. I adhered the textured green card stock to the front of the card and then glued the bird and the cloud down.

It’s a simple card, but I think it turned out pretty well. Happy Easter and thanks for stopping by!
