Easter Card & Egg Holder


Today I have a quick and easy Easter project that is featured on the blog over at S J Crafts today to show you , I made both the card and the egg holder from 1 sheet of Kraft card and 1 sheet of 6 x 6 paper.


So the card is 10 x 10 cm which was cut from the sheet of Kraft card. The paper is from MME Now & Then Mildred pad. I simply cut a strip from a sheet mounted it onto pale yellow paper and stuck it down the centre of my card blank. I coloured a cute Easter image from Pink Petticoat and mounted it on a die cut yellow scalloped circle which is then stuck to the card on foam pads to give it some dimension. I added some Studio Calico wood grain enamel dots to the corners and also in the centre of the flower on the top of the egg. Lastly I used Glossy Accents to make the chicks beak shiny.


Onto the egg holder I cut a piece of Kraft card 27 x 9 cm and then scored 11 cm, 17 cm, 19 cm and 25 cm. I made up a template below if you want to use it. Between the score lines at 19 cm and 25 cm I die cut a circle for my egg to sit into. Once folded up you can see you have almost a box shape with a flat back. I decorated the back similar to my card adding a strip of paper with die cut image attached. I also added a strip of paper and some enamel dots to the front of the box.



I hope you have enjoyed my project today.
I would like to enter my card and gift into the following challenges:
Digi Haven - Easter with a twist (must use brown)
Cut It Up Challenge - Easter and die cut
Craft For The Craic - Easter/ Spring
A Creative Romance - Eggcellent Spring
