#CTC266 - CASE our Sketch for an Easter Card - Week 2

Week 2 but don't panic you still have a week left to CASE an Easter card and add it to our Facebook page using the link over to the right:

Using this Sketch:

This week I used the Dinoroar DSP as my starting point as I wanted to incorporate the pattern with the little eggs in it. From there I chose the background Pretty Peacock as my base card, and the mat of Mango Melody was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. 

Next I stamped the feature image from Forever Blossoms in Pretty Peacock ink and coloured using Mango Melody and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends. I diecut the image with the Cherry Blossoms Dies and mounted it to a Stitched Shapes oval diecut in Soft Sea Foam to incorporate the colour I chose for my leaves. The oval and image have been raised using Stampin' Dimensionals. The greeting is the same as I used last week from Timeless Tulips, in Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White and then tucked it under the flowers.

Our sketch has been great to see interpreted in so many ways and I think it lends itself well to an any occasion card, just switch out the colours and greeting as required.

I didn't feel this photo showed off the card as much, but because animal pictures (of late especially) are making us smile, I promised Rove I'd still include it!. Daylight savings is upon us and nice to still be enjoying the sunshine in April.

Hope you are staying safe where you are. Time to pop over and see what our talented Tina has for us this week:


  1. Rove looks impressed with your card!! I love the dsp, it's perfect for an Easter card!

  2. Beautiful card Sandra, those colours work really well together. Love your assistant and love the egg pattern on the DSP too.

  3. Love the large blossom with this sketch and that DSP is perfect for Easter, Sandra.

  4. Oh the blossom is just beautiful for Easter. Love the colours choices too - they are just lovely together and bright and cheerful..

  5. Witty use of the eggs on the DSP, and the sweep of flowers is perfect for Easter.

  6. I love that you used dinosaur eggs on an Easter card and am kicking myself I didn't think of doing this!! Rove is a beautiful kitty and certainly soaking up that sunshine.
