CottageCutz Elegant Easter

Good morning, CottageCutz fans!!!  It's TGIF, another weekend is upon us, and I hope you have plans for making it a great one.  Today, I'm sharing a card I created for Easter, using some really wonderful and oh, SO EASY CottageCutz dies.  I call this one an elegant Easter card, because that's exactly what comes to my mind when I see these beautiful Filigree Easter Egg CottageCutz dies.  These amazing designs afford you the opportunity to make positively gorgeous creations with very little effort.  With some beautiful patterned paper, glitter card stock, and just the right embellishments... VOILA!  Something that looks like you spent hours!!!  Now, THAT'S what I'm talkin' 'bout!!  Here's my card in several views so that you can take in all the wonderful detail of these dies.
 I used DCWV glitter card stock to cut these beautiful Easter eggs.
 A close up view of all the gorgeous detail and sparkle.  Just a few strategically placed pink pearls were just the ticket! 
 You can see that I nestled the eggs into three layers of grass that I cut using the CottageCutz Grass Border die.  This die is a MUST HAVE staple in any collection.  I use mine for so many projects!  I LOVE IT!!
The banner for the sentiment was cut by hand, and the patterned paper is from my scrap stash.  I loved the muted colors with just the pop of pink and burgundy in the paper.  It's very Victorian, and again... SO elegant!

I'm so glad you could join us today.  I wish you a wonderful day, and  weekend filled with everything you love.  If you're lucky, maybe there will be some crafting with CottageCutz in it for you!!  Happy crafting!!
