Easter Egg Greeting Card

Hello everyone! I would like to share another card for Easter. I used an egg shaped dies for this project. There are several card making techniques that you can use with these dies like a shaker card but I opted to create a basic greeting card with a recessed background for dimension.

I also used the Easter basket and egg stamps from Pretty Pink Posh Easter Friends Stamp Set and a few dies from my stash like the chevron shaped die and clouds from Sizzix Thinlits New Baby Die Set.

I only used a minimal amount of supplies for this card, mostly cardstocks (white, light teal, dark brown, green and yellow pattern paper I created using Adobe Illustrator). I also used Tumbled Glass Distress Mini Ink Pad, small light blue sequins, Nuvo Crylstal Drops , Memento Tuxedo Dye Ink pad, Tsukineko Embossing PadShin Han Touch Twin Markers, Ranger Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Gun.

I made several die cuts of the Easter egg on the white cardstock and one on the yellow pattern paper. I cut a single egg die without the scalloped die for the front background on the light teal paper and two scalloped die cuts on the white paper, which will cover the back of the card. I also made a partial die cut of the egg on a white cardstock folded in half and on the dark brown paper using the egg die and on the green paper with the chevron die. I only used a small portion of these die cuts. The basket and eggs stamps will cover most part of it.

After I die cut the clouds, I rub a light blue shade ink using Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass on the edge of the clouds to give it some dimension. I stamped the Easter basket and eggs on a white cardstock and then colored it with my Shin Han Touch Twin Markers then I fuzzy cut the stamps. I then prepared the front of the card. I adhere the green chevron die cut at the back of the brown die cut and glue it at the lower portion of the light teal egg then I glued the clouds. I cut the excess part of the cloud and the brown cardstock.

To assemble the card, I glued all the Easter background die cuts together with the yellow pattern paper on top. The cardstock with the partial die cut will be the base of the card and I just covered the back portion of the front and back of the card with the scalloped die cut.

I heat emboss the sentiment using Happy Easter using my Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.

 

There are several ways to recreate this card. You can also make an Easter Egg gift tag out of this Easter Egg Die Set or a bookmark or perhaps a shaker card as I have mentioned above. Thanks for visiting my blog and see you on my next blog.
