An Egg-tastic Easter Card Tutorial!

Hi all, it's Alexis from the Creative Team! Today I wanted to share an Easter-inspired make with you all. With Easter just a few weeks away, and with needing to stay put where I am, I wanted to send some snail mail to my nearest and dearest since I won't be able to celebrate with them in person. Easter is my favorite holiday and I loved getting to use all the bright spring colors from our Sizzix Assorted Cardstock. Take a look below to see how I made this card.

 

What you will need:

Sizzix® Big Shot® Machine (660200)

Sizzix® Thinlits® Die Set 23PK - Easter Celebration (664357)

Sizzix® Thinlits® Die Set 17PK - Easter Sentiments (664373)

Sizzix Surfacez™ - Cardstock, 8 1/4" x 11 5/8", 20 Assorted Colors, 80 Sheets (663007)

Cardstock (White)

Paper Trimmer

Scissors

 

How to make:

  1. Die-cut out of two shades of green cardstock one grass border from the Springtime Borders die set. As the grass die has no blade on the edge, die-cut the grass one time, then line up the edge of the first cut with the edge of the die and die-cut the grass again to create one long die-cut. Trim the edges away from the excess cardstock with a pair of scissors.

2. Layer the lighter shade of green on top of the darker shade of green and adhere the bottom portions of the panels together with liquid adhesive.

3. Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" panel of white cardstock. Fold in half horizontally to create the card base.  Adhere the grass along the bottom of edge of the card front with liquid adhesive. Trim off the grass that hangs over the edges of the card with a pair of scissors.

4. Die-cut out of desired cardstock colors a variety of eggs, florals, animals and sentiments from the Easter Sentiments and Easter Celebration die set. To make adhering detailed layers together easier, I would recommend cutting detailed elements from adhesive-backed cardstock.

5. Layer and adhere together flowers, eggs, animals and stackable sentiment layers as desired.

6. Adhere the sentiment to the top, center of the card base. Adhere the large egg and two smaller eggs as desired behind the first layer of grass with liquid adhesive. Arrange the animals, additional eggs and flowers along the edge of the grass as desired and adhere the elements to the card front with liquid adhesive.

I hope you find this scene to be inspiring for your upcoming Easter card makes. I can't wait to stick these in the mail to family and friends in the next few weeks! What types of Easter makes are you hoping to create this year? Let me know in the comments below.

 

Until next time...Happy Crafting!
