From the first time I saw Elizabeth Craft Designs in my local scrapbook store I was drawn to the Easter eggs. However, since Easter had just passed, I passed on them and opted for flowers and butterflies instead. Then, when Easter rolled back around the following year, I could no longer find them. I have dreamed of coloring those eggs for almost three years, so naturally, when I made the design team, the first thing I ordered were all of the Easter Egg Peel-Offs! And, I have been waiting for Easter to get close enough, to finally make a card using those eggs.
First, I applied Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the Peel-Offs using double-sided adhesive.
I selected my colors based on the paper I planned to use from Authentique. I then colored the eggs using my Copic Sketch Makers. Watch Els showing you how to color on top of the Silk Microfine Glitter HERE. I used the following colors:
I decided to use some of the little parts on the sticker sheet as well, so I colored the bows and grass and cut them out. Then I turned my attention to the card itself.
For the base of the card I die cut four accordion pages using the Accordion Oval Card die and attached these together using double sided adhesive on the long side tabs.

Next, I added a smaller oval, which comes with the Accordion Oval Card die, to the inside of each of the ovals I planned to add eggs. I also cut out the bunny, using the oval die from the paper I was working with. I used dimensional foam squares to attach each of the eggs and the grass.
Next, I decided to decorate each page with the Oval Flourish Frame Edges. This adds more elegance, like what you might expect from a Faberge egg, and brings more focus onto the eggs.
I added tiny rhinestones and pearls on one egg and Silver Glitters Dots on the other. I love the dimension and sparkle this added. Once that was done, I folded the card, attached the tiny tabs and adhered the bows to the card.
For the sentiment, I stamped “Happy Easter” onto a piece of Blue Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz using StazOn ink. Once this was dry, I trimmed the piece and then used a corner rounder on the corners.
As a final touch, I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the bunny paper to help balance the sparkles.
I love how it turned out and I finally got to color the eggs!
