Easter Eggs Card

Yesterday I cut out a lot of ovals which I used for a stencil for an Easter egg design. Well, I saved those ovals and today I created a little mini scene of the eggs nestled in the grass ready for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.


I took those die cut ovals from Cheery Lynn Designs and using a masking method added stripes of inks to them. Then I stamped the little cross image from Sparkle N Sprinkles Stamp Set 383 called Religious Sympathy on each one. I colored the cross in with a white gel pen and then added some Wink of Stella to provide a bit of shimmer.

The sentiment I used is also from Sparkle N Sprinkle and I think even though you cannot find it on her web site, if you asked for that certain sentiment I bet Margaret could find it for you. Just refer to my blog post so she can see the sentiment I used.

I used My Favorite Things Grassy Edges Die-namics die set for the grass and used two shades of green card stock. I finished the scene by sponging on some blue ink for the sky.

I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week in which the theme is Easter.

Well, this will be my last Easter card I do unless I decide to work on more for next year. I am enjoying using my new die cutting machine called the Crossover. I am so happy I purchased it.

Have a great day and thanks for your comments.

  9. Verna, this is a beautiful Easter card. Don't you just love making Easter eggs. I am going to have my little, almost four year old, granddaughter over to make some Easter egg cut outs, and treat boxes. I can't wait. Thank you for the inspiration.
