Happy Easter

Hi guys!  I actually found this card late last year in one of my files, so I thought I would keep it and share it for Easter!  Then I realised that I will be in the middle of the April die release blog launch during Easter so today is the final day before the launch starts, so today it is!!  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Dahlia Garden embossing folder.  I used the Double Pierced Circles to create a multi layered frame out of Blue Dusk and white card and I attached it over the embossed background.  I added it to a piece of coconut white card and added pearl corners to it.  I used the Chrysanthemum as the sun cut in yellow,  I added grass and eggs and an Easter bunny to the inside of the frame and the sentiment above them.  I added a satin ribbon bow with a clear Dazzler to the side of the frame.  The card was completed with white and blue dusk mats and layers.

Cute, and clever thinking, so typical of how you think lol what a brilliant idea for the sun, why can't I think like that, I always make this happy hobby more difficult than needs be, so to use one of the chrysanthemum dies to make the sun is genius. I've made no Easter cards this year as market falls next Sunday but I do have some of your collection on standby as they can always be worked in with your garden theme dies, show me a bunny that doesn't enjoy raiding a garden for pumpkins etc so not all is lost. I'm really looking forward to your new samples during the launch as it's going to be an exciting time for all so no nerves Sue, they are already loved and selling like hot cakes ☺
Wherever you are whatever your plans, hope it's a happy day xxx said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you a lovely card so cute.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Scottydog said...

What a lovely fun card. I was just wondering what set the sun had come from when I read you had used a chrysanthemum, ingenious! This is a lovely composition Sue. Thank you!
Looking forward to the launch, have seen some but not all (I presume) of your dies so will no doubt have some nice surprises.

Hi Sue- what a sweet Easter card this is and love the sunshine you have created. So clever. Looking forward to seeing your new die launch tomorrow. Sending best wishes

Pussycats said...

Good Morning Sue and all
What a stunning Easter card and love all the details you have created. The framing of the circles really draws the eye in to centre and the bunny and eggs are so cute and finished brilliantly with the idea of the chrysanthemum flower for sun. You can tell its a sue wilson card finished with the messy bow.
Crafty hugs to all, Wendy

Looking forward to the launch of your new dies, but I am going away for the day tomorrow. Setting off early so may not get chance to comment until late. Can still sneak a peak on my phone though. Can’t seem to comment using it, but maybe I should try harder?
