Easter Card - The Chocolate Egg House!

Wouldn't you like to live in a house like this? Or at least go visit and swipe an egg or two!! This is a big card, standing at 25cm tall, made for my Monday Mojo spot on Dottie's World. The house, base of roof, door and garden path was made from American Traditional plain cardstock (available at Charmed Cards & Crafts).



The roof was covered in eggs cut on my Silhouette and painted with Copic markers. A strip of Felt Fusion Easter Eggs sits at the bottom of the roof.


I used two of the Charmed Cards & Crafts digi Stamps, namely Easter Holly 3-in-1 from the Holly and Madison bundle, and Henry Hare from the Animal Magic bundle. The grass, chicks and vine was cut on my Silhouette in white cardstock and coloured in with copics, as was the two main images. A Karen Foster rub-on was used for the sentiment.


Holly was attached to the card using foam pads to slightly elevate her.


Thanks for looking. Have a lovely day xxx
