Easter Card Idea with a Cute Chick

Do you have memories of watching your children or of yourself going on Easter Egg hunts as a child? I sure do of my children. They loved hunting for eggs out in our yard, but they weren't the best at sharing. We resorted to writing their names on the plastic eggs, so they could find only the ones with their name on them. That's how we could keep it fair. We often added some money in a few of the eggs and they really loved that!

 With those memories in mind, I designed this card after being inspired by Terri Gaines fun fold. It is hard to believe Easter will be here in just a few short weeks. It is April 17 this year. So at my Stamp and Chat Classes this past weekend, this is one of the Double Z with Pop Out Fun Fold cards we made.


Fun fold cased from Create with Terri Gaines - her Jan. 22, 2022 post. 

The Card base is 5.5" x 11". Score at 1.75", 3.5", 5.25" and 7".

The Designer Series Paper pieces are: 2 pieces at 1.5" x 5.25" and 1 piece 4" x 5.25"

The Pop Out is made from one piece of Basic Black cut 2.5" x 5", scored at 2.5". Two pieces of Basic White are cut 2.25" square.

I changed up her measurement just a bit. The back section of the card, I increased the Basic Black to be 2.5" square with the Basic White piece at 2.25" square, so all the squares are the same size.
