Cricut Easter card

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying the weekend and finding some time to get inky. We are having gorgeous springtime weather in Manchester and people are really friendly when they pass you in the street. Have you noticed how sunshine cheers people up? It certainly makes me feel happy.

I've been making some Easter cards and I'd like to share one that I made with my Cricut machine.

I cut the card base in cream card from the Wildcard cartridge. I love the cut of this pretty card with the unusual folds and delicate edging. I then matted some layers in Hawaiian shores and aqua mist and used a punch to nip out the corners. Next came a basket stamped on cream card from Waltzing Mouse stamps

which I coloured with Copic markers and mounted onto the panel. The cute little chicks came from Just because cards and I cut them at 2 1/4 inches. I flipped one so they could cuddle up to each other, added some eyes with pen and chalked some rosy cheeks on them. The sentiment also came from Waltzing Mouse and I finished the card off with a little white ribbon that I coloured with a Copic marker so it would match the basket.

Thanks for looking in and for all the lovely comments you have been leaving. I really do appreciate them - in fact they make my day.
