Hello It’s Angela here to share a new card design with you.  I’ve taken inspiration from the new PMD Tri-fold card blanks, using the gorgeous bright daffodil yellow for an Easter themed make.

How To:

Using black memento ink, stamp 3 chickens onto Papermilldirect White Linen Card. Colour as desired using alcohol markers.

S1 Dsc04217

Outline the coloured images using the palest grey colour and die cut the each chicken using an oval die.

S2 Dsc04221

Using Black Ink, Stamp the ‘Happy Easter’ sentiment and the ‘Have an Egg-cellent Day’ sentiment onto PMD White Linen Card.  Die cut out as before but this time using a smaller oval die.

S3 Dsc04225

Cut 5 rectangles of pretty pattern papers measuring approx. 8.5cm x 13.5cm each. Round corners if desired and add d/s tape to the back.

S4 Dsc04228

Open up the PMD A6 DaffodilYellow Tri-fold card and adhere 3 of the pattern paper pieces to the 3 inside card panels.  Adhere a chicken image to each panel using d/s tape so not to add bulk inside card.

S5 Dsc04244

Close Tri-fold card and add a pattern paper piece to the front.  Layer the ‘Happy Easter’ oval onto a slightly larger oval of pattern paper and then again onto card front using 3D foam pads.

S6 Dsc04245

Open front of card and add the remaining pattern paper to the plain yellow card panel. Top this panel with the ‘Have an Egg-cellent Day’ oval.

S7 Dsc04246

Add shimmer to the chickens with a clear sparkle glitter brush pen.  Decorate card front using adhesive gems and paper roses in spring shades to match papers.

Although I have used the tri-fold card and the chicken stamp set to create an Easter themed card, they are easily adapted to suit Birthday and other occasions.  The PMD Tri-fold card bases are really versatile and using them adds lots of interest to your card makes, especially as they give lots of space for decorating and are of course great fun to display.  Have you tried the new Tri-fold card blanks yet?  Why not share your makes over on the Papermilldirect Facebook page, we’d love to see them!
