Little Chickie!

     This is the final Easter card I had using, what else, my Imagine and Celebrate with Flourish. For this card I cut the chick/egg image from Celebrate With flourish cart @ 2". I used the relative size so all layers match up nicely and used the Blossom color palette for all the layers. What's so nice about this is how well it all comes together.
     Once again I used scraps that were hanging around on my craft table so this card came together rather quickly. I wanted a more elaborate look to this card so I used my cuttle bug on the egg and did some distress inking on the chick. After looking at it for a while I decided to hand draw in its little eye.
     The tag is a spellbinders that I used the Just Rite Stamps for the saying "happy easter". I finished off with some creative charms gradient gems. There you have it!!!

Easter Basket Card

     How fun is this! I really love making cards with my Imagine. I used the Celebrate With flourish cartridge for the Easter basket @ 2.5". For the layers on the image I used the Elise imagine cart but the background square was an image from Paper lace using the Elise cartridge for the printed paper. How cool is this?
     What is so great about the Imagine is that I can select all my layers in relative size ( so I know they are all going to size together neatly) but I can go back and color each layer separately using a palette that co-ordinates well on that particular cart.
     I like to have my embellishments pop so I embossed the basket with my cuttlebug and then inked the edges. The eggs have glossy accents on them to add dimension to the eggs. Of course you have to add some prima flowers, gradient gems from creative charms and then some ribbon.
     Finally I use some new tags from Spellbinders and added my sentiment using Just Rite Stamps for the "happy easter". Quick and easy without wasting time looking for paper.
