Easter Egg Card
Cathy is hosting Mo's Challenge this month, and this week we were to make a card with a different shape...no squares or rectangles! I don't usually make shaped cards, but since Easter is coming up, I decided to try my hand at an Easter egg shape.
I drew an egg 5" x 7" for the card base and one about 1/4" smaller for the card front and cut them out of CS. Then the fun stuff began! I looked through all my Basic Grey scraps (I save everything!) and found several strips of bright pastels, (mostly from the Urban Prairie collection ) that looked like Easter to me. I glued the strips down and added paper trims from Doodle Bug and MS punched borders, trimming everything when I was finished. I adhered lace trim to the back edges of the card front with 1/8" Scor-Tape.
I colored this sweet image (Mo's You're My Best, which is also available as a boy) with Copics and mounted it on embossed CS cut out with Nesties Narrow Ovals. I affixed the image panel to the card front, tied a gingham ribbon at the top along with a small silver "Love" charm. Last, I added some beautiful little roses...the pink from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the tiny white ones from7 Kids College Fund, and finished it with some silk ribbon leaves and some punched branches.
This will be our granddaughter's Easter card. She keeps all that I give her and displays them on her nightstand.
Now what shape are you going to come up with for this fun challenge?
Looking forward to seeing your entry!
