Egg Hunt!

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope today finds you well and safe.  Here in California we're on mandatory stay at home orders.  I know many will take this time to craft.  This is a great time to send cards to friends to let them know you are thinking about them.

My card today is for Easter and features three new dies from the Spring release.
It is also for the color challenge this week at Splitcoaststampers - Highland Heather, Purple Posy, Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam.

To start I cut all pieces from white cardstock.  I colored my tree stump, sign post and bunny using neutral Distress Oxide inks.
I then colored the eggs and signs using the colors specified in the challenge.  I also added Mossy Meadow since that is considered a neutral and is allowed by the challenge rules.
I used a fine multi-liner pen to trace over the lines on the signs and emphasize the words.

Next I cut a piece of polka dot paper 4.25 x 5.5 inches and a frame using the largest of the Stitched Wide Square Frames.
I centered the frame die on my polka dot panel and cut it out.  Then I adhered the panel to a white card base.
This allowed me to add my frame flush with the polka dot panel.  This card is very flat and would make for easy mailing.
Finally I added all the elements to the card.
This is a super fun and quick card to make.  By coloring all the pieces (rather than using different colors of cardstock) I was able to make one pass through the die cutting machine with each die!

Be sure to visit the online store where the new Spring release is on sale for a limited time!
