Spring-y {Easter} Nest Card and Weekly Deals


Happy almost-Easter, Studio Visitors!  I had an egg-cellent time putting this card together.  I used my Pansy Punch for the nest (I sueded and distressed some layers).  The Bird Builder Punch gave me the branches with leaves and the Small Oval Punch was used to I create the eggs.  


The Whisper White piece of card stock was fed through my Big Shot and cut using the Deco Labels Collection Framelits. To give it texture, I adhered it to the Pink Pirouette piece and fed them together through my Big Shot with the Woodgrain TIEF.

Crochet Trim adds the final, whimsical touch.  This card was entered in The Shabby Tea Room Challenge, for which we were given a color palette and asked to use flowers, lace and/or ribbon.

I really had fun with this project.  I think that the next time I make it, I'll use a variety of patterns and stamp the eggs before punching them out.
