I don't usually make Easter cards but I have a set of egg dies for a very long time and not used them. So I thought I would have a go.
It's not a particularly exciting card but I thought, I would share the making of this card.
I have seen egg shaped cards made by folding a sheet of card stock in half and placing the fold of the card over the die , slightly short of the edge of the die to create the hinge, perfect for the first step to an egg shaped card. but this leaves the egg with one straight side, which looks a little odd.
As you can see from the photo below . It doesn't matter how beautifully the egg is decorated if it has a straight edge it's not going to look right.
However, this can easily be rectified by cutting another egg shape and adhering it on the front of the hinged card. as in the photo above.
This not only hides the hides the hinge it restores the egg to it's proper shape.
Then the egg can be decorated in anyway you like. I chose to decorate my egg in Stampin' Up's DSP polka dot papers in spring colours.
