Divas let's get started on this Charming Easter card using "Lil' Chick-a-Dee", size the Chick-a-Dee to 4-1/2" x 6" and center on one half of your sheet. Size (3) three eggs 1"x3/4" and arrange just behind the Chick-a-Dee as shown. Select a sentiment and size to 2-1/4" and place under the Chick-a-Dee and eggs.
Print on Hammermill® 100 lb. White Coverstock. Cut sheet in half.
Color your Chick-a-Dee as desired. I chose to use Copic® Markers.
A list of the colors used are listed here and above. I hope this helps you.
Once it is Colored, you can fussy cut the image out to just above ground level as shown.
Cut a 5"x12" rectangle of Baby Blue Textured® Solid Core Cardstock. Score and fold in half to make your cardbase.
Place your Chick-a-Dee on the cardbase with the fold to the top. Your ground line should be about 1/4" above the bottom of the cardbase.
Using a lead pencil, trace around your Chick-a-Dee with about a 1/4" halo. Fussy cut the cardbase. I used a white eraser to remove any pencil lines left on the cardbase.
Center and adhere the Chick-a-Dee to the cardbase. Cut a 1-1/2"x5" rectangle and
adhere to the ground level on the back of the front card flap.
Size a 1-1/2"x5" rectangle and (3) three eggs 1-3/8". Group the eggs and center on the rectangle on the upper 1/3 as shown. I drew some grass and placed in front of the eggs or a grass die cut.
I computer filled the Rectangle and the grass. Print (3) three. Colored the eggs
Fussy cut and adhered, sandwiching the bottom 1/4" of the cardbase back flap.
Added a name plate to the backside as
OPTIONAL - I pearlescent watercolored the flowers on the hat and the easter eggs front and back. Applied Nuvo® Crystal Drops - Dandelion Yellow to the center of the violet flowers on the front of the card.
