A friend of mine asked me to make her a couple of Easter cards and I decided to get original and design something myself. I’m really EGG-cited about this file, it turned out so sweet!
(I’m trying BOX for my files - let me know what you think?)
I used some sewing on this card, though I’m sure glue might work fine too. I like the special touch sewing adds. (besides, its good for me to keep up my sewing skills so I don’t sew over my finger again) You need to decide and sew your lace parts on BEFORE you sew the bottom section or the top section together.
This is a fun 3 part project. A simple card base (definately does not have to be white - a coloured cardstock might be the ticket for YOU!) and then the actual EGG parts (no, not a white and a yolk, tho that is a funny thought) - actually four pieces, two for the top, two for the bottom with holes in the top part through which you can put a brad (I used a rather large dollar store brad, you might want to make your own holes smaller if you want to use a smaller brad - or even remove the holes out of the file and use a punch the size you desire) and lastly, the inside “egg is a sketch file with a cut for the edge (you will have to set your machine to do this, i’ve created all the lines the same) I chose my designer paper to be one that is one sided, of a crisp stock. The reason for one sided is so you sketch the sentiment on one side. A nice touch is all I’m saying. I’m all about the details.
Note - the butterflies are included - but not the flowers - the flower is from the Silhouette Store.
Use a couple of glue dots to adhere your “EGG” to the card base but do mention this in your greeting to the person receiving it - they may like the option of taking it off of the card base and sticking it…on the fridge?
I liked it so much I created a “batch” of these sweet little cards.
