Easter Continues. . . . .


Good morning everybody. Hope all is good with you. Not sure why I'm scheduling this as I will be up now as I, in a fit of madness, agreed to go into work for 7.30am. Not only that, I agreed to stay until 16.30!!! Note to self, engage brain before mouth in future.
Thank you for the comments on Mr D's card. I'm sure he'd try and eat it if he could.

Ita, lovely to know you're still paddling. Gosh, you have been through the ringer chuck but I look forward to the book lol! Great you still have your sense of humour and I'm sure everyone, along with me, wishes you well.

Sorry that the Easter theme is ongoing but I wanted to show the card I made for Nesta. She was thrilled, bless her and I have to admit, I was pleased with the way it turned out.

Now, I started with an A5 cream card base. I then cut another piece of cream card, slightly smaller and cut an aperture using one of the SB Scalloped Ovals, large enough to fit my daffs.
On this top layer, I stamped my Card-io Daffs stamps with various Distress Inks, added the "Easter" cut from an X-Cut Alphabet die and stamped and heat embossed the "Happy" above it. I inked the edges with Mustard Seed DI.
I lightly marked the base card, in pencil, through the aperture so I knew where to assemble my daff display. The daffs are actually flowers cut from the HC Sunkissed Fleur die, larger ones in yellow card, small ones from orange card. I shaped the orange ones to form the centres so they looked like the"trumpets" on daffodils.


The leaves are actually from the SB Carnation Creations set so no actual daffodils involved but I do think they look daffodilesque.
I then foam padded the top layer onto this and that was that.
I hope you indulge my artistic licence with the daffs.

I only have one more Easter card to share, just to warn you.

Hopefully, I will be back soon if today's 9 hour shift doesn't polish me off!!!

  1. Good morning Ang, your Easter card is fantastic, your daffs are great, you made a good job of putting them together with all your different dies. I love my X Cut alphabet letter die. I see you are joining me in long day working, I am in for 7am and will be lucky to finish by 7pm. Ok I will get a couple of hours off in between- long lunch break. Hazel xx

  2. This is such a cheery card and the daffs are super. Now I'm back I've backtracked to see Mr Duck's Easter card and it's great too. Very clever how you did the marking on the egg. Have a good day and I hope you are not too tired this evening! Christine xx

  15. Ang the difference to you doing 9 hours and me doing my hours I can do things for myself at the same time, you have to do what you are asked to do, I can like do my own shopping along with doing things for work. And yes long day but the girls are good and are fun to be with. Hazel xx

  19. Ang, I noticed you commented on Johns blogs that blogger hasn't allowed you to comment today I have had big problems too, like my dashboard has gone and a thing saying about using cookies instead. I have just about thrown my iPad out the window trying to get things back to normal, So you are not alone Hazel xx
