Let's Color Eggs!

Hi, Lois here with another card for Easter.  As a kid, I'm sure we all loved to color Easter eggs.  I know I did.  Using one of the new Easter/spring dies from CottageCutz, I made a card reminiscent of that fun experience.  The CottageCutz die I used on my card is Egg Painting Bunny.

I wanted to make my egg-painting bunny the star of the show, so I made a relatively monochromatic background for him, using various purple papers.

To start my card, I die-cut the pieces from white cardstock.

Leaving the pieces on my sticky foam mat, I colored them using my favorite coloring medium -- my Copic markers -- using the packaging as a guide.   After I colored the pieces, I constructed the bunny and his paint can.

I then cut my cardstock and patterned paper:

Purple card base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Pale violet patterned paper - 4" x 5 1/4"
Die cut purple cardstock with largest Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die
Die cut pale violet cardstock with largest Nested Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die, trimmed at the stitch lines

Constructing my card was simple.

I added some small foam pop dots to the back of the bunny and the eggs and adhered them to my card.

I then stamped the sentiment, and I was finished.

Be sure to check out the CottageCutz store because these Easter/spring dies (as well as some cute stitched dies) are currently 25% off.

CottageCutz dies used on my card are:
