In yesterday's post, I showed you seven little Easter chicks that I'd put together. Today I'd like to tell you a story about them, before showing you the first three cards...
The template I used for them is from Papercraft Inspirations and can be downloaded here. The template used is in the upper right of the page and yes, I will likely be doing something with the others on the page also and will of course show you when they are done. As well as putting the chicks together, I also punched 3 little bunnies from the card bases yesterday, thinking that they would form a border at the bottom of the card. But then when I looked through my stash for the stickers I'd planned on using, I couldn't find them *sad face*.
Anyways, this morning I was sure I'd find them. Nope, not yet. Admittedly I really DO need to organize my studio! Instead, I found a sheet of 12x12" Easter paper. Instantly I was inspired. I chose different color card for the base card, now coordinating with the chick body, not the wing. I've used 6x4" cards, so trimmed the paper into 8 pieces of 3x5". I then cut the back from the original punched card bases and trimmed this to 3.5x5.5", then matted and layered the paper on top. The mat and the chicks were then added to the card with foam dimensionals. I used a single dimensional on the back of the bunnies to complete the cards.
You'll notice that Lydia's card has a pearl brad for it's eye, instead of a googly one. This is because she is only 18 months old and I felt it was safer for her.
Stop back tomorrow and I'll share the four boys' cards *smile*
