How can it be time for Easter already? It is really catching me by surprise.
I know my new grandson could care less right now that his Grammy spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to find just the right pattern for his card, but he will learn soon enough that I have to find "just the right look" for every card I make. And I had every intention of doing some sort of bunny rabbit, but instead, this little Easter mouse caught my attention. It was really fun to do since I had a chance to play with different papers and textures and think it's pretty cute!
This little mouse is on foam tape as is the top of the basket to give it a little dimension.
The pattern is from Treasure Box Designs. The grass design is from Birds Cards.
I imagine when Carter has his first Easter egg hunt, there will be eggs hiding in the grass,
much like these!
The papers are from Paper Temptress. I love the gray ruche paper for the mouse. I added some chalk on the ears and feet the texture of the paper took it well. The basket was embossed and then chalked as well.
I know he has no clue that it's Easter or what that even means, but I look forward to having many years ahead to share in the fun and joy of this most special day with him.
