Easter Decorations

Two very simple cards using the Butterfly Die, nestabilities and some pretty papers. I used 3 of the cut butterflies to give some depth and movement. Effective die but but they were a pain to cut out as you have to keep poking all the bits out of the metal die :-(

(click the photo's for a closer look)

Last years Easter twig tree with more of the butterflies added. I used a paperclip stuck to the back to make the hanger to put them on the tree. The pot was just a bucket decorated, Forsythia twigs painted with acrylic paint, egg shapes stuck to the pot, shredded yellow tissue round the base and some fluffy chickens on that and some bought eggs and decorations. You could add chocolate Easter eggs if you like them!!

Also in the photo is my gold-leafed Goose egg and a chicken shaped card. The template for that was in last years Easter edition of Crafts Beautiful, I expect you can still download it from their website.
