It seems like Christmas Ive been creating Easter cards for weeks, but hopefully this is the last one for the boys and Ive got one more to post for one of our little granddaughters. My hubby went out this morning and popped them all into the post, so that there is no excuse for them not getting there for Easter and of course hopefully to miss the new postal charges which are due in April. I think its a bit much that its going up again as the delivery in some areas is quite appalling, luckily in this area its brilliant and I have some of the nicest postal people you could wish for.
Anyway getting back to my card, this one has been created for my second eldest grandson Thomas so Im hoping he wont think its to young for him, hes coming 17 but he does suffer from Aspergers Syndrome so hopefully he wont find it so. Ive used this new Magnolia image of Edwin and last years egg basket, Ive masked Edwin to stamp the basket behind him. Then Ive coloured him with my copic pens after which Ive used on of my Nestabilitie Label dies to cut him out, Ive also used a sentiment stamp from Magnolia and cut it out the same way as my stamped image, then drawn around the dies to create the mounts for both.
The base card is 7"x 7" white card, with a first layer of blue card, and one of three papers again from the Nitwit Downloads, this first one has an all over pattern of Easter Egs, the second and third mounts are two triangle pieces of yellow card with the two further pattern papers mounted at opposite corners.
The mounted image was then stuck to the left hand side and the sentiment to the right at the bottom. For my final flourish Ive popped a cockerel button towards the top on the right.
