Egg Easter Card for Scrap Therapy.....


Weeeeell before we know it, Easter will be upon us and its early this year being end of March.
So at Scrap Therapy, we've made a start thinking about getting cards ready
This week I've made a little 'EGG' card... it really was quite easy.

For the face of the card....I've cut out two sizes of egg shapes - but there needs to be three eggs cut out..... one bigger, and two the same size:

I love the products I've used which are mostly MME Lost&Found 3 Oliver
For the one bigger 'egg' I've used the darker side of MME Oliver Blue Quatrefoil Paper and one of the slightly smaller 'egg' is from the reverse side which is lighter blue (both blues are looking quite 'grey' at in the pic though, they are 'blue-r... prettier!) Cut another of the smaller sized egg shapes from MME Oliver Yellow Honey using the reverse side which is the off-white

It's now a matter of placing the off-white egg on top of the darker blue bigger size.... Cut a 'crack' through the ligher blue egg - and sew (either with machine or draw stitches) across the 'cracked edge. THe coolest thing about this 'patterny embossed' paper is that it SANDS really well - so it gave a bit of definition by sanding down one side.
Attach all the 'eggs' together and sew around the oval edge. With the little 'cracked' paper left over - cut it smaller with another 'cracked' edge and pop it up the top (dark side up) so it looks like a 'lid'....
NOW for the decoration....
the gold glitter trim is awesome its MME Oliver 12x12 Chipboard and add a couple of- MME Oliver Buttons
Now to the rub-ons...  They looked cute.... those sweet little chickies and the 'Happy Easter' title... . you can find them HERE

Last thing that needs doing is to back them onto some cardstock so it can be opened and written in...it could be more eggshapes or even put on a square or rectangle card.....ooor you could use it as a tag!
HOpe you have fun making up your easter cards!!!
