Easter Surprise!! This card I made after seeing some ideas on and after seeing the sample in the March Stampin' Success (pg.28). I love that SU! demonstrators get extra ideas from Stampin' Up! When you lift the top section of the card the egg cracks open and the little chick from the Good Egg Stamp Set is revealed (114974). Hard to see from the photo, the sentiment at the bottom is "You Crack Me Up" Too cute!!

Here is another picture with the "chick peeping out" I traced the bottom section of the egg (which was cut with scissors in a zig-zag pattern) with pencil so I would know where to stamp the chick. I used Sahara Sand Marker to ink only the chick portion on the stamp. Other items used: Card Stock- So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Sahara Sand, Big Shot, Stampin' Up! Backgrouds 1 (the So Saffron CS has the small circles texture plate), Whisper White organza ribbon, Rich Regal Brads, So Saffrron classic ink pad, scallop edge punch, dimensionals, paper snips, Stampin' Pastels, Sale-A-Bration Delicate Dots DSP. The basket is made by using the Big Shot and the Baskets and Blooms die, Delicate Dots DSP, Whisper White organze ribbon, All Holidays, Linen Thread, 1 1/4" circle punch, small cello bag (filled with yummies), clear rhinestone brad. I have a workshop coming up in a few weeks and the this is one of the projects that we will be creating. Can you believe Easter is coming?? Where does the time go??

Ooooo! Clever little card!!! I had seen the few they featured in Stampin' Success, but they didn't seem as cute as yours. I love it - how 1/2 of the card moves up. Gotta try it!!!
