Easter Egg Hunt

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have a brand-new release of dies in the online store. It's our Flowers & More release. The individual dies are currently on sale for 30% off. This release has what we are calling "simple cuts". Meaning not as many pieces to put together so they assemble quickly.

They are so perfect for the many card making occasions that we all have. Birthdays, Thank You, Sympathy, Mother's Day or even a scrapbook layout just to name a few. For your viewing pleasure today, I am featuring the new Fence w/Flower Garland die to create an Easter card. 

Design Steps:

I started my card by stenciling clouds on white cardstock with tumbled glass, broken china, spun sugar and mowed lawn distress inks. I blended the colors directly on the white card base.

White card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Next, I die cut the fence & flowers with different colored cardstocks. I also used the Easter Egg Hunt (Spring 2020 release) die for my Bunny & phrases 
I secured these images to the card base with dimensional adhesive and clear drying glue. 
I added the Easter Egg Hunt phrase and colored eggs to complete the front of my card.  The colored eggs are from the Mr. Peter Rabbit die (Spring 2018 release). 
I wanted to finish off the inside of my card as well. Since my theme is an Easter egg hunt, I thought  I would show a bunny that collected the Easter eggs (lol)!!! So I used the Juggling Spring Bunny (2020 Spring Release)die and a bunny kisses phrase - that's from the Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes (2019 Spring Release) die. 
Found some designer paper in a water-colored pack that I bought from Hobby Lobby. I thought it would work nicely for the background. I attached the phrase words with clear drying glue and the bunny with dimensional adhesive. 

Well, that's it for me for this post. I hope I have given you a way to use the new Fence w/Flower Garland die. It's a nice compliment to so many other CottageCutz dies.  See you next Saturday!!!
