Easter Chick

It's Jeanne today with the Saturday post.  I have a cute little Easter card for you that is very simple to make.  Although this sweet chick is ready for Easter with her bunny ears, after Easter she can be used without the ears.  Wouldn't she make an adorable baby card!

Now on to my card.  I started with a sketch from Splitcoaststampers.

This simplifies the design process.  I decided that I would substitute the oval in the sketch with my chick and egg.

Then I picked my papers.  I cut a base panel  4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches that will be adhered to my card base.  I used the largest of the Stitched Scallop Rectangle and Stitched Rectangle dies to cut my gingham layering panel.  When glued together the scallops just peek out from the gingham for a spring look.  Using the fourth largest of the Stitched Rectangles I cut my floral panel.

I arranged them as per the sketch and stamped my sentiment across the bottom.

It was time to cut my chick from various colors of scraps.  I chose a pink for her bow to coordinate with the flowers in the paper.

After gluing her down I added a few flowers I had leftover from another card that used the Bunnies in Pots die (also from this release).

I hope you've enjoyed my card today.  Be sure to visit the online store where the new release is on sale for a limited time!
