Easter Egg Surprise Card






I made 10 of these cards for a swap I am in. I think they turned out cute. I used the Easter Cricut Cart for all of the cuts I made. The Egg was cut at a size 5 1/2 out of blue pearlescent cardstock. I cut the egg twice. I embossed the first egg with the cuttlebug spots and dots folder and then attached the two eggs together by only putting double sided tape around the edges. I did this, so that when I cut the egg in half, it would create a pocket for the chicken. The chicken was then cut at a size 2 1/2. I cut the regular chicken in yellow and the blackout in orange. I then colored in the eyes black. The chicken was then attached to inside of the top shell so that is could fit into the bottom shell. Once the card was finished, I used stickles to decorate some of the spots that were on the egg from the emossing folder. I used stickles in the following colors: Cotton Candy, Baby Blue, and Frosted Lace.
I also put this card in the Just Buggin challenge to use dry embossing on a project.
