Happy Easter!

 Hey Crafty Friends,

Today I'm sharing a card full of Easter cheer combining two of my favourite brands Sweet November Stamps and Heffy Doodle

The sentiment from the Sweet November Stamps set needed a few extra treats added to it which is where the Heffy Doodle honey bunny boo stamp set came into play, whilst I had this stamp set out for the Easter eggs I stamped some extra images that I felt would work too. 

Card Recipe:

1. Start by die cutting the slider die from butterscotch card stock.

2. Make your card base from the same coloured card. Slimline card base is cut to 8.5x7, scored at 3.5

5. Using a basket case stencil and scattered straw ink for a tone on tone look 

Tip: when using a 6x6 stencil on a slimline card you can start at the top and then move your stencil down, overlap the pattern with where you started which will help keep it lined up to use on a slimline. This usually works best with a repetitive pattern such as the one in the stencil I've used today.

6. Colour your images in your favourite medium. I'm using copics.

Colour combo:

Lamb - C7, C5, C3, C1, C0

Bunnies - E18, E15, E21, E11

Easter Eggs - chose your favourite colour blends, Easter eggs are supposed to be colourful and mis matched, in my view anyway!

Carrots - YR07, YR04, YR02

Basket - BV25, BV23, BV31

7. Before assembling stamp the sentiment from the sweet easter set onto both the front of the card and the pull tab section. This way even when the card is pulled up you will still be able to see the sentiment!

8. Now you can assemble together, I'm using foam tape as this helps create depth for the pull element. Glue images down with adhesive glue. Make sure all the images are only stuck down where they will not interfere with the sliding mechanism, it's ok to have them hanging over the edge just ensure the glue is only on the piece that will move!

I'm very much in the mood for an Easter egg now! Until next time, happy crafting!
