JustRite is having one HUGE March Madness Sale with 20% off on all 1 5/8" products. Included in this sale is this adorable stamp set from the Favorite Occasions Borders & Centers Set. I used the sweet little Chickie and Easter sentiment with Spellbinders™ die templates: Standard Circles Lg , Classic Scalloped Circles Lg and the Nested Egg Nestabilities®. The paper is Cosmo Crickets Earth Love & Ever After collection.
To make a shaped card that opens like a regular square card I simply folded my cardstock in half. I then positioned the die template so that the cutting edge tip slightly overlaps the folded edge. Once cut the overlapped edge will still be intact creating a card that can be opened.
Once the card base was created I was able to decorate and embellish the front of the card. I used the softer lighter colors from my Copic Marker collection to color the chick and non smear pastels on the sentiment to create a vintage look.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy the sale!
