Today's set is called Spring Has Sprung. My first card is not only for the MFP Blog Hop but also doubles as my Stampin'B challenge card. Our hostess this week, Brenda (a/k/a Benzi on SCS) wanted us to use a bird on our card. A duck is a bird -- right!
The cute little duckling is colored with Copic markers and cut out using a circle nestie, matted with the lacey circle. I just bought one of Tim Holtz's Sizzix On the Edge dies and thought it would look good across the bottom -- using both sides of the die.
I've made a couple Tri Shutter cards and found them quite fun.
Using the alternate measurements (5 x 10 1/2 inches) my card folds up to 3 1/2 x 5 inches. I used Basic Grey Urban Prarie DP for all the panels except the center ones. The upper and lower center panels are actually stamped with the basketweave stamp from MFP Background Fun on MFP Desert Sand cardstock. I stamped, colored and cut out the Easter basket on the front and the eggs on the back (stamping the watermark stamp of Speedy the Cat on one of the eggs).
