Egg-cited for Easter?

Not really - since I have no little peeps around to share the excitement with, Easter won't be very exciting for me. But I will be mailing out these cute Easter cards to my little peeps to enjoy! If you are egg-cited for Easter though, feel free to join in this week's Heart2Heart challenge and share your artwork with us.


I created the egg-shaped cards with White Daisy cardstock using the Z1686 Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. The egg image is on page 57 and the size dial was set to 5 1/2". 

For the left card, I used a piece of pattern paper from the X7163B Chantilly paper packet also cut at 5 1/2" then used a few strips of leftover paper and made them wavy the old-fashioned way - with just a pair of regular scissors. The bunny's head was made with a 2" scallop punch and his ears were cut at 1" - inside of ears cut at 3/4" of pattern paper - using the scalloped oval image on page 52 of Art Philosophy. His nose is a heart shape found on page 26 cut at 1/2" out of one of the papers from Chantilly. His eyes are Outdoor Denim brads. I then stamped the words with Outdoor Denim ink on strips of White Daisy cardstock and attached them with brads. Two more 1/4" hearts were cut to place on the word strips.

For the right card, I used another piece of pattern paper from Chantilly, cut again at 5 1/2". I cut the decorative layer with Buttercup cardstock but before attaching it to the paper, I cut out a little basket and bunny - isn't he cute? - with the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge - and placed him just under part of the decorative layer using a piece of 3D foam tape. The circle and flower images were stamped with the C1553 Chantilly Scrapbooking workshop stamp set using Buttercup, Twilight, Sweet Leaf and Cotton Candy inks. The words - Happy Easter - were stamped using an older stamp set no longer available. Two Mocha Opaque gems were used for the bunny's eyes and his nose was punched from the center of another stamped flower. 

Ok, it's your turn to be egg-cited so start creating! Then head on over to the Heart2Heart blog to share your artwork! 

Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrampin'!
