'Which came first?' Easter card by Chris W

The quirky little chick and eggs Easter set of dies & stamps by Stephanie Barnard at Sizzix is very versatile and to prove it I'll be blogging a number of pieces using them on the run up to Easter. The first is this simple Easter card...

As well as using the Easter set, I've used the fabulous Sizzix Harvest Bucket (Originals) die. This has been retired now, which is a great shame, and it's in the sale at the ridiculous price of £4.99. There aren't many left so grab it whilst you can, it's been a firm favourite of mine for years!

The card itself is very easy to make so even the newest newbie can attempt it (click HERE to view, download or print the instructions). Using ink sprays or glimmer mists to 'speckle' the eggs is effective and it's just a case of layering them behind the bucket.

The cheeky little chick just finishes the card off. It definitely reminds me of the saying "What came first, the chicken or the egg", lol.

Thanks for stopping by, feel free to comment if you have the time.
