Easter Friends

 Hello friends! I hope you are all staying well. 

Today's card was created for a challenge at my friend Susanne's meeting. The challenge was to create a tryptic card using the dimensions we were given.

I decided to make an Easter card for my granddaughter. This will be her first Easter so I wanted her to have a special card.

We were given the dimensions of the DSP and the cardstock that matted it and that was it. We were to come up with the rest of it on our own.

I decided to use the lovely Fresh Freesia gingham DSP which is from the Pansy Petals DSP pack. I matted the squares of DSP with Fresh Freesia cardstock. I added my squares to a piece of Basic White cardstock using dimensionals. In the lower right corner of my cardstock, I stamped my sentiment using Fresh Freesia ink. The sentiment is from the Easter Friends stamp set.

I wrapped a piece of Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around my Basic White cardstock and tied it into a knot. I then added my cardstock to a Fresh Freesia card base using Tombo Multipurpose glue.

I felt the card needed a little something more so I decided to add the baby chicks. I stamped three chicks from the Easter Friends stamp set on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I coloured them using So Saffron Stampin' Blends on the bodies and Pumpkin Pie on the legs and beaks. I fussy cut each of the chicks out and added them to the gingham squares using dimensionals.

I still felt like something was missing from this card, so I added some 2021-2023 In Colour Jewels in Pale Papaya. The jewels look more yellow than orange so I feel they go really well with the ribbon and the chicks.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I hope little Peyton has a Happy First Easter and that she enjoys the card too. I think she will like the bright coloured chicks and the ribbon but other than that she probably won't notice too much and will just put it in her mouth.

Stay well and keep creating!
