Easter Chicks Card In A Box & A Gift Bag

Yuck, I've been poorly the last few days with a tummy upset.  Despite not feeling 100% I was back in my craft room today making a gift bag to accompany an Easter card in a box.  I made the card a few days ago - it evolved as it went along and ended up being quite time consuming but it was a lot of fun to create!  This card is for our friends Jan and Alan.

I absolutely adore the chick from the SU! 'A Good Egg' stamp set, it really is so cute!  The chicks were stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with inks and a water brush.  I paper pieced the eggshells and fussy cut the trio of chicks.  I die cut leafy borders, clouds, butterflies, a banner and then punched grass and flowers and assembled.  The chick at the back and a couple of the clouds are popped up.

Some pics from different angles plus a close up of the box part.


Here's the back where I wrote my message.

Here's the envelope flap - yeah, I went a bit mad LOL!

This morning I used my Gift Bag Punch Board to make this gift bag to go with the card.  It's filled with Lindor chocolates - yum!  Because my tummy is still not right I didn't even sneak a chocolate for myself!
