Easter Egg With Flowers


This is Anja. It's just one week away from Easter and that's why Easter and Spring themed dies are on my table.

For this card I used:

- Cottage Cutz dies (Floral Eggs & Butterflies, Spring Watering Can, Spring Greenery),
- Zig markers (numbers 043, 046, 052, 202, 260),
- Craft card base (15x10,5 cm),
- dark red card stock for background (10x14,5 cm),
- patterned paper - wood (9,6x14,1 cm),
- watercolor paper for die cuts,
- embossing ink,
- rose gold embossing powder,
- heat gun,
- Nuvo drops (Dandelion Yellow),
- paper glue,
- adhesive foam pads
- watercolor brush,
- scissors.

First I cut all the background paper.

Then I die cut the flowers and the greenery from watercolor paper and colored it with Zig markers. I used Nuvo drops for the middle of the flowers.

I die cut the beautiful egg from white paper and tapped it with embossing ink. I used rose gold powder and heat it with the heat gun.

I wanted the inside of the egg to be white, so I drew around the egg and cut it out from white paper. Then I glued the two pieces together.

I put adhesive foam pads on the backside of the egg and glued it on the "wooden" background. I glued the flowers around it. And card was finished.

I hope you have all your Easter cards ready to go. I have to make a few Easter treats and then I'm ready to go.

Btw Rise&Shine dies are still available for 25 % lower price.

Have a nice Sunday.
Anja Z.

Such a pretty egg and flowers. LOVE the rose gold embossing powder. I'm a fan of it and I've been thrilled to see it being used in card crafting lately. -Janet
