Glitter Easter Egg
For this card I started with an A2 white card and used the DL191 Celtic Chain Rectangle Reflections die from Cheery Lynn Designs to cut the design on the front of the card (these dies are easy to work with and easy to store and there are many different designs). The egg was die cut using the DL210 Lace Egg Four and the base for the egg is one of the corners from the B161 Lace Corner Deco A set ( I snipped off part of the corner piece to give it a flat bottom) both dies are from CLD. To add the glitter to the egg, I used a piece of 2" Super Sticky tape, on the backside of the egg, trimmed it and then added the Sparkly Sweet Glitter from SweetStamps.com. I put a piece of 36 lb vellum behind the egg and trimmed this out too and added some Candi fix foam dots to adhere the egg to the card. I used a course pouncer and Forget Me Not and Fortune Teller Shades Dye inks to add some color to the front of the card. I attached the ribbon to the card by weaving it through one of the open areas on the front and used a micro glue dot to attach the end of it to the inside of the card. The bow was made using the Bow Easy ribbon maker. On the right inside panel of the card I attached a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of lavender card stock to finish the card.
