April Craft Club

This month's club will be held on Monday 14th April - usual time 10am-noon.

With Easter soon upon us we'll be making some Easter cards although they can be adapted for other occasions if you so wish.

I bought some new X-Cut nesting die sets, one of Egg shapes and one of Paisley shapes and we will be using these for our cards.

I have cut out all the parts needed for the "Quirky Bird" card to get you all started and we will be inking the edges to get more definition on the shapes, plus adding a speckled background.

The Egg card is a bit more traditional and I have left it up to you all to choose your own colour combinations for this one. Inking the edges again though. (cross optional)

A quick reminder for those not so sure of the Cuttlebug plates to use.
The dies are all thin dies so you'll need from the bottom up:-
"A" Base plate
"C" Adapter plate,
Die face up,
Card/paper face down
"B" Cutting plate on top and away you go.

Hope to see you all on 14th.

Oh and do pop over to the Ashtead blog for more Easter inspiration
