A Good Egg Card

Easter is right around the corner; so I thought I would start posting some Easter themed ideas. (Keep checking back, I also have an Easter basket with the cutest eggs that I will be posting shortly).

To start take a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Barely Banana Card Stock. Using your SNAIL adhesive (or whatever adhesive you have handy), adhere the background (from Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Stamp your chick on Summer Sun Card Stock using Basic Black Classic Ink. Cut your chick out and adhere it to your card front. (TIP: notice the legs on the chick are not real nicely cut...the legs will be covered so you don't really need to worry about what they look like).

Using a piece of blue DSP from the Sweet Pea DSP bundle stamp the egg in Basic Black Classic Ink. Cut a jagged line across your egg. Slightly overlap the 2 pieces of the egg. Pierce a hole in the edge of the egg (pierce one hole that goes through both the top and bottom of the egg) using a 1/16" punch, a paper piercing tool, or a needle. Put a rhinestone brad through the hole. Adhere the egg (ONLY USE ADHESIVE ON THE BOTTOM 1/2 OF THE EGG) over top of your chick using Sticky Strip
(TIP: The use of Sticky in this step is HIGHLY recommended since the egg will be opened and closed repeatedly by the recipient of this card)

Stamp your saying on Apricot Appeal Card Stock using Basic Black Classic Ink and adhere with your SNAIL adhesive to the top of your card.

And your project is finished! Wouldn't you LOVE to receive this card? Make someone's day and send them this cute card.
