Commissioned Easter card


I was asked to make an Easter card for a toddler granddaughter, so I made an easel, stamping with one of my new Penny Black stamps 'juggling eggs' inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens. I cut the image using a scalloped nestie die brushing very lightly with fired bick distress ink. I used papers, felt eggs, chipboard egg and Happy Easter ribbon that have been in my Easter box since last year , generating the sentiment on computer.



Folds flat for postage:


I continued the ribbon on the back with the addition of a sparkly egg.
