Pretty Easter Eggs

Hi everyone!  It's been a while since I posted any cards to my blog.  I've been so busy making them that I haven't made the time to post any!  So now I'm playing catch up - I have a lot of them :)

So this is one of my Easter cards, I wanted to keep it simple yet elegant.  So, this is a 5"x7" card using white cardstock.  I took a piece of 7"x 4.5" white cradstock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug folder - Birds and Swirls and attached this to the top part of the card.  The green area of the card is a piece of green from my leftover pile that I tore across the top leaving me a piece of 7" x 1.5".  This was embossed with EF - Swiss Dots and then attached to the card.

The Easter egg stamp is from The Artful Stamper.  I stamped it with VersaMark ink on 4 different pastel coloured cardstock  and 4 times on white cardstock.  They were heat embossed with a gold embossing powder.  The 4 coloured eggs were cut out.  The center band of the white eggs were cut out and glued on top of the coloured eggs, giving them some pretty detail and dimension.  The coloured eggs were then tucked under the top edge of the grass and glued in place

The sentiment was computer generated and matted on some coloured paper, the colours of this paper match the colours in the eggs.  The sentiment was popped up with some dimensionals.

Here's the inside of the card.  The verse is a combination of several verses and it also was computer generated onto white cardstock.  The edges were punched with a Fiskars punch and the verse was matted onto the same designer paper that was used on the front.  A small piece of this paper was added at the bottom and the card was finished.

Thanks for stopping in to take a look, stay tuned for lots more cards :)
