Rewind: Easter Egg Card

Here is another rewind project for you, as I am recovering from my surgery.  Thank you for all of the good wishes!  I had a few setbacks that kept me in the hospital longer than I anticipated, but I finally came home Sunday afternoon!  I thought it would be fun to share some of my past Easter projects, in case you need to make some last minute cards this week.



For this card, I used my Gypsy to weld together two 5 1/2" eggs from the Easter cartridge. I cut a third egg at the same time and adhered it to the front of the card so that the fold wouldn't show. I heat embossed a background image on the top blue layer to give it a little more interest.



My felt flowers were cut in the Cuttlebug with dies from Papertrey Ink, as were the tag and the button. My sentiment is from My Creative Time's Color Me Happy stamp set.
