Hello friends! Today, I’m sharing a card for the Easter holiday. I’m using Sunny Studio Stamp’s Chickie Baby stamps (coordinating dies here) and a few carrot images from the Bunnyville stamps set (coordinating dies here). I’m also using the Slimline Nature Borders Dies for the grassy hills and the Spring Fever paper pad for the grass.
This card measures 6″ wide X 5″ tall and fits inside a 5″ X 7″ envelope. I used this shorter width so that my 6″ square Spring Fever paper covered the full width at the bottom. This card could also be made into the popular, A2-size card with no seams, too. I just happen to like a bigger card to give.
I started by splattering my card front panel with watercolors. Using the grassy border from the Slimline Nature Borders dies and the grass pattern paper from the Spring Fever paper pad, I cut a couple rolling hills. I used two layers to make a foreground and background in the scene. I blended on some green Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink at the bottom for interest.
Next I stamped, colored (see colors below) and cut out my chicks, basket and the carrot images. I turned the large carrot on its side, punched out a half of a 5/8″ circle and added two 3/8″ black wheels to make the carrot into a car. Now my chick fits inside perfectly and is ready to travel home for the holidays! Do you see his home?!
Copic Sketch Marker Colors used to color the images:
- Carrots: YR07, YR68, YR65, YG67, YG17, YG03, YG01

All the cute images were set and glued in place. I added a black string to the carrot balloon. I stamped the “Happy Easter” phrase in the upper left corner to finish the card.
