A Quick and Easy Easter Project and Card ~ Enjoy

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I took some time out today to create some fun items for Easter...  Since its such a fun holiday to create, I put together this project and matching card.  I created the chick using circle punches, ink and my oval Nesties.

The pails can be purchased at Archivers or even a dollar store.  They are SUPER fun to make projects with and don't forget, they can be filled, stuffed or even hung - your choice.  For my design, I first created this baby chick - using only circle punches, my small heart punch, oval Nesties and a small square punch. 

Here is a close-up... once I punched out the egg using the oval Nestie, I embossed it with one of my favorite embossing folders.

To make it extra fun, I made a matching card using some extra scraps.  The border was created using two border punches by Martha Stewart.  Enjoy the close-up below...

Thanks for stopping by... Please stop back soon... I have several more cards, projects and a giveaway all this week.
