When I think about Easter cards I always imagine something elegant like the card below. I’m never successful when I try to make a fun or a playful Easter card.
To create this projects I used my Grand Calibur machine, a few dies, an embossing folder and a few sheets of cardstock from First Edition. You can find a detailed supply list at the bottom of this post.
I used the Reverence EL-028 embossing folder and two dies from the Radiant Rectangles S5-161 set from Spellbinders
because dies in this set are very intricate I used parchment paper to make it easier to take the die cut out of the die (I placed my die, covered it with parchment paper glossier side down and covered that with cardstock – meaning I placed parchment between the paper and the die)
the oval die from this set not only cuts and embosses, it also creates holes, which can be left as is or used to hand stitch – thats what I did, no sewing machine was involved
I embossed white cardstock using the Reverence EL-028 embossing folder, added a stitched border on my sewing machine and rounded the corners
assembled all the elements together using foam adhesive
using my other machine (Cricut Expression) I cut two eggs
adhered one egg above the other and than adhered that piece to my card
Thats it! Quite simple!
