CTD 287 Easter Card

I needed to make some Easter cards and wanted to use my IO Bunny, Cloud and Grass dies to make a scene.  The Color Throwdown had the perfect Easter colors for their challenge this week so I decided to play along.

I needed a frame for my scene so rather than just cutting an open square, I used Spellbinders Captivating Squares die.

For the details, I used some tiny brown pearls for the eyes, a tiny leaf punch for the eggs and a Sizzix embossing folder to give texture to the clouds.  Finished size is 4 1/4 square.  
Here are the colors for the challenge:


  • Stamps: SU! Happy Easter
  • Ink: Cat's Eye - Creamy Brown, Versafine - Vintage Sepia
  • Paper: SU! Barely Banana, Soft Sky, Pistachio Pudding, Neenah Solar White, PTI Kraft
  • Impression Obsession Dies: Bunny Set, Grass Border, Clouds
  • Other: Spellbinders - Captivating Squares, pearls, leaf punch, VIVA Glass Effect Gel - Crystal Clear, oval punch, Sizzix embossing folder, Corner Chomper
