Make It In Minutes: Easter Chick Card

It’s the time of year to think spring and make some Easter cards! I decided to go “Cute” and create a paper pieced chick and egg from simple shapes and Orange Peel cardstock.

I used 5 colors of Orange Peel: Nathan, Lemon Drop, Skylar, Yosemite, Orange Juice.

Although I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut out the pieces, they can be cut by hand or with any other electronic cutting machine. The chick and egg are basically oval shapes.

Here are the 5 easy steps so you can make this card in minutes!

Step 1: Cut out your card base layers in blue Orange Peel cardstock: Skylar and Yosemite.

Now layer it all together with pop dots and adhesives and add a “Happy Easter” sentiment.

I really love the subtle texture of the Orange Peel cardstock, which is perfect for this Easter card. Actually, change the sentiment to “Welcome Baby” and you have an adorable baby card, too!
