Card A Day Blog Post: Easter

Hi everyone, thanks for coming by. It's time for another post from me,  for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, Easter.

To make my card, I first started off with a 5.5"x 4.25" white card base. For my background , I cut a piece of pink card stock, cut to 5.25" x 4", and embossed it with the swirl Cuttlebug folder, and my Cuddlebug, then adhered that piece to the front of my card base.

For my Easter egg, and the band behind it, I chose to use my new Silhouette Cameo that I just recently purchased. I decided to use a couple of the files I had purchased through their store, one of the Easter eggs from the Assorted Decorative Easter eggs set, and the Single Trellis background.

For the Easter egg, I chose my design, sized it to the size I wanted, and cut it out of a darker pink card stock, I then wove some trim that I had in my stash into the openings on the egg, then added a flat back pearl to the middle. To line the inside of the egg, I placed it on the design paper that I chose, so that one of the flowers showed on the top opening on the inside of the egg, traced around my cut egg, then cut around where I traced, I then glued both pieces together. 

For the trellis, I cut it out using a cream color card stock, fit to the size that would fit my card the way I wanted, added the same trim that I used on the egg, added flat back pearls, then adhered it to the middle of the embossed background paper. I then adhered the egg in the middle of the trellis.

I hope you like my latest creation, and if you have the time, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
