egg cards

A quick Happy Easter card that my girl and I did. She created the art and I did the cards. This is a good way to use some of that artwork that accumulates.

Supplies:
  • artwork (She was very into watercolor painting this weekend which made for pretty eggs. She also dumped the cup of water onto the paper that she colored with marker, pretty effect too.)
  • egg template (I used an egg shape cookie cutter)
  • scissors
  • adhesive (I used double sided tape)
  • card stock

:: Trace and cut eggs from the artwork.

:: Cut card stock to fit egg. Add decorative edge if desired.

:: I ended up just sending the cards like this with writing our message on the back of the cardstock instead of taping the cardstock to a folding card.

I love those! I was wanting to make my own Easter cards this week but am running out of time with all my other projects going on. These look like they just might fit into my schedule, tho. Thanks for the idea!
