My Peeps Easter Card



I knew I had to have the “My Peeps” stamp set the moment it was released in the new catalog.  It has been sitting in my craft room just waiting for ink!  I figure it is now or never if I am going to get Easter cards stamped!  The card is based on the sketch this week at Mojo Monday.  The challenge this week is your choice of round or square.  I really enjoyed the last round card I did, so I decided to try my hand at another.  Here is the original sketch-
 
 Don’t get too attached to the paper that the card is made with!  I attended the American Crafts warehouse sale in Utah last year and picked it up for $1 a pack!  WooHoo, who can beat paper packs for $1.00.   The paper was meant to be a baby kit, but I thought the muted pastel colors worked perfect for an Easter Card.  All shapes with the exception of the grass have been cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

 
I encourage everyone to think outside of the box with their crafting supplies.  I made my cloud background with a scallop border die.  My grass is actually an icicle border turned upside down.

 
Did you know you can manipulate the Close To My Heart stamps to a different shape?  I transformed the wavy Happy Easter saying to a curved saying for my circle.  I then selectively inked the saying to make it two parts!  I combined three colors of twine to bring all of the colors in the card together.  I paper pieced the eggs in the same paper and added details with a white gel pen.

Supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge 
B1402 My Peeps
Baby Bee Paper Kit by Crate Paper
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
Z2153 Sweet Leaf Ink
Z2123 Goldrush Ink
Die-namics Icicle Border by MFT
Die-namics Wonky Scallop Border by MFT
Signo White Gel Pen
Twine-Unknown
