Make this easy Easter Egg Card from any die cut, punched or bought oval shapes that you have in your stash
Use them on your cards or simply use them as tags to add to the Easter Egg gifts that you give at this time of year
Add them with ribbon or twine to the gift and don't forget to add your name as well so that the recipient knows who the gift is from
In other tutorials on the website we have made some Novelty shaped cards, just for the fun of it, and some specifically from circle punches, but now it's time to try some from oval shapes that you have in your crafty "Stash".
Choose some bright, pretty card and an ink pad that will blend with them.
I have used a good quality 255 gsm card for my project as this is sturdy enough for the card base to stand and also for the eggs to keep their shape.
The silver foiled card on my green egg is from Hunkydory
Create the ovals that you need from several patterned papers with large punches or dies.
I have used Spellbinders Classic Oval to produce my shapes and they are quite a good size for my project
If you have different sizes of punches, die cuts or bought shapes then why not mix and match for a unique look to all of your cards.
I have inked all the edges to the ovals as this will give them definition and make them stand out from the background
Once you have the shapes you need then you can arrange them as you wish onto your base card.
Both of these cards have had the eggs wrapped in some lovely organza ribbon and matching bows attached.
I have added foam pads to the back of the eggs, and added them at different levels. This allows you to overlap them.
You can be as elaborate as you wish with the eggs that you make. Try adding in some little flowers to some of them
The sentiments for both cards have been computer generated for ease and then I have layered them onto off cuts of the same card and added them with foam pads.
The self adhesive flat backed pearls have been added to finish them off.
Altogether this is a very easy Easter Egg Card to make and these eggs won't add inches to your thighs
But the real thing is much more comforting ... so give me the chocolate variety any day!!
