Hatching Chick Easter Card

Hello and happy Monday! This week I'm working on making my Easter Cards. I usually mail about a dozen cards and after making this Hatching Chick Easter Card I still need nine more. I usually make at least two of each design, sometimes more. The most time consuming part for me is picking papers and deciding on the design. Making duplicate cards goes much quicker!

This cute hatching chick image is by Angie's Digital Stamps and it was colored with Copic markers. It was a challenge finding the right papers for the image colors. I colored the image last year and used colors I liked without having a paper in mind. Usually when I color my images I pick the papers first and it's a lot easier that way. So, after going through every piece of patterned paper I own... this is what I decided on. The yellow polka dot is by The Paper Studio, the floral is by Recollecions (Happy Bouquet) and the purple stripe is by Echo Park. To add the embellishments I went through my stash of already stamped and punched/die cut flowers and butterflies and found these that matched well. The Happy Easter sentiment is from the $2 bin at Michael's and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
