Back with another challenge for you this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog (FCCB)!!! The criteria for this challenge is to use pastel colors on an Easter project...it can be a card, layout, 3D item, etc. Use your creativity and head over to FCCB and enter your project today! And be sure to check out the other Design Team members' creations...you will truly be inspired!
I made a card using Doodlecharms for the egg and George for the circles, ovals and triangle that comprise the rest of the card. For the egg, I cut out two idential eggs from white cardstock using the shadow feautre, layered them on top of each other and then used my craft knife to cut the "crack line". I discarded one of the tops. I cut one egg from patterned paper, followed the crack line on the white egg, and cut it in half. I inked each piece and adhered the patterned paper onto the white cardstock pieces.
To assemble the card base, I placed adhesive around the bottom and sides of the bottom half of the egg and adhered the two bottom halves together...this made a pocket for the chick. I attached the top and bottom of the egg with a brad, accented with a pink acrylic tag and a flower. This allows the top of the egg to be lifted/rotated to reveal the chick!
Next, I cut out two ovals (George) for the body and face of the chick. I cut a small orange triangle for the beak, and inked each piece. I accented the face with google eyes and some pink chalk for the cheeks. To finish, I hand cut a bow from green patterned paper and accented it with a button and ribbon. I printed "chick" onto white cardstock, trimmed it into a tag shape and attached it to the bow. I placed a small piece of adhesive on the bottom of the chick body and inserted it in between the two white egg halves on the bottom.
For the sentiment, I printed "Happy Easter" onto an oval that was pre-cut (George) and then layered it with a green patterned oval (using the shadow feature). To accent this oval, I added two flower brads with two paper flowers. The I used pop dots to adhere it on the front of the egg.
When the recipient gets the card, it reads, "Happy Easter....chick!". :)
Thanks for looking and have a creative day!!!
