Easter Chicks

Hi Everyone, today for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I thought it would be nice to share an Easter card with Spring colours and these three gorgeous little Chicks from our recent CHA release.

Here are the steps on how to make it, this first photo shows the reverse side.

Using the French Flair Scalloped die cut the largest die in Orange and Green cardstock. Cut the Orange layer in half, down the middle and attach with adhesive onto the back of your Green layer for a shadow effect around the edges.
Repeat this process using the second largest French Flair Scalloped die and Yellow and Striped Pattern Paper.

Die cut Happy Easter in Orange, Yellow and Green cardstock offsetting and adhering each layer together.

Die cut your Easter Chicks in Orange and Yellow cardstock again slightly offsetting. Lift the Yellow layer of wing slightly up. On the reverse of your Chick lightly press the point of a Black Pen into the centre of the eye. This now defines the eye area.

Die cut your Heart Oval in White Cardstock and mount Yellow card in the coordinating die cut from the Classic Ovals.

Cut out your Shasta Daisy Strip in White Cardstock and using your Craft Dauber or a small ball of cotton wool begin tapping some Scattered Straw ink into all the centres.

Once dry shape petals on a foam mat with a stylus tool. Assemble layers up to desired effect with adhesive. Finally adding a layer of Flower Soft into the Centres with adhesive.
Die cut the Leaf Strip in Green and shape leaves on a foam mat with stylus tool.

Using a square card 5"7/8 by 5"7/8 start to adhere you layers onto your card as in photograph. Adhere Happy Easter with glue onto the Oval Centre and then layer onto the card with foam pads.
Finally arranging and adhering on the Chicks, Leaves and Flowers to the card to finish.

I hope you have all enjoyed my tutorial and feel inspired.
See you all next week.
