Easter Egg Card

Design # 76084 - Silhouette Store

It's hard to believe it but Easter is almost here. I made several different cards this year to send out to my family. I am in a little bit of a hurry as we are preparing for a vacation and so with the cleaning, washing clothes, packing and the general nuttiness we tend to put ourselves through before we permit ourselves a break, I didn't have as much time as usual to dedicate to design. A quick look through the Silhouette Design store solved that problem by giving me several quick cards to choose from.

This little beauty is a 5 x 7 double bi-fold card that I picked up at the Silhouette Store from SnapDragon Snippets. It came with all the pieces and a quick trip to their web site told me how to assemble the card. It's a little hard to see here but I used blue glitter paper for the "paint" in this card and pink glitter paper for the happy Easter phrase. I'm not a huge pink fan normally but the orange and pink fluorescence of the groovy tie-dye cardstock I chose for it made the pink glitter paper a no brainer.

Also available with this card is a matching paint drip envelope. I meant to take a picture of mine but I forgot! Here is the picture from the Silhouette Store. I made mine with cloud paper and a matching blue glitter top instead of the green one shown so it would match my card. It really makes the card extra special when the envelope hints at something great inside.


I hope you and yours have a very fun family Easter this weekend. Not only is it a special time of the year, it's a yard stick to tell us that spring is not far behind. Can't wait to make more spring cards. Visions of flowers and birds are dancing around in my head! I'm sure lots of ideas are not far behind.

Take care!
