Masculine Easter

Hello Again.

Another quick little card, which will be entered into the Challenges at Stamp TV, Happy Easter and Scrapy Land, Anything Goes!

I needed one more Masculine Easter card and here is what I came up with.

I cut 3 Oval shapes to make my eggs using the Spellbinders Classic Ovals die.  I cut them from Kraft card stock.  Here there is a local jingle; Brown Eggs Are Local Eggs, And Local Eggs Are Fresh.  Not sure if this is true for every part of the country, but we grew up singing that little ditty.   I then decorated my local brown eggs using the Gina K Designs stamp set, Lots Of Washi, inks in Marina Mist, Old Olive and Wisteria Wonder.

My basket, fabric liner and sentiment are also from Gina K Designs; Basket Blessings and Holiday Basket.  Ink in Raven Black.  My background cover plate die is by Papertrey Ink, Hexagon.  I thought it would be that 'chicken wire' look that would compliment my theme.  Card stocks; Ivory, Kraft and Green Apple.  Very manly!
Hope you have an EGGStra special day!
Thanks for hopping by!


  1. LOVE me some local eggs. We have a neighbor down the street who has chickens....brown eggs are the BEST. And so is your card. Super creative with the stamped decoration. And I love what you have done with that basket too. Plus, that hex cover die is perfect, it looks exactly like chicken wire. This card just makes me smile.

  2. A brilliant male card for Easter! Such a clever design, love the decorated eggs in the basket! :-) xx

  3. I love the choice of colors for this Easter card! Everybody goes with pastels, but this is one out of the box approach and I love it!
