Okay us your card!

 Welcome to today's feature card!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

For my feature card today, and to kick off our new Ai Blog Challenge, we will be using some brand new images from the Art Impressions Spring 2023 Release to create a super fun and interactive PIVOT-POP UP card!  This challenge is to create both the inside and front of your this card will really highlight the inside of our card in a special way!

We've got the cutest little bunnies and chicks from the Bunny and Chicks Set (5737) and some festive Easter eggs and a cute little basket from the Easter Egg House Set (5738). These images are part of the Ai Watercolor Journal Series but we will be using them a bit differently today!

Let's go ahead and stamp, color, and cut out all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Peach Pink, Pink, Lemon Yellow, Yellow, Orange, Lt Violet, Purple, Lt Blue, Lt Green, Turquoise Green, Deep Green, Lt Brown, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Platinum Brown. We will leave a little white border all the way around the images when we cut them out.

To set the scene for our card we will be using the brand new Ai Easter Journal Series Paper Pack (5742). This paper is just perfect for Easter and Spring cards! Lots of pastels and pretty patterns! The sky will be die cut from the pastel blue polka dot paper and the ground will be a purple floral pattern. This will look like a beautiful field of flowers!

Now we can create the Pivot Pop-up mechanism for the inside of the card. I will give you all of the instructions for die cutting and assembling this mechanism in today's video!

We can attach all of our cute little images to the card and pop-up. We will also die cut a collections of pretty clouds for the sky. On two of the clouds, on the front of the card, we will be stamping "Hippity" and "Hoppity" in a soft blue color. And for the inside of the card we will be using the brand new Ai Nested Oval Dies to create a cute place for our inside sentiment which says "Easter's on its way!". All of these sentiments are from the brand new Ai Easter Sentiments Set (5733).

I had a great time creating this card and I hope it has inspired you to give it a try!!!

Thank you so much for joining me today!  Have a fun and crafty day!!!
