Wow ... what a great project this is. I SO enjoyed making this card.

The challenge was to make a shadowbox card. It was the TLC on Monday at SCS. I was surprised at how easy this type of card is made. Seriously, you need to try one!

I chose to use the You're Egg-staordinary set from Clear Dollar Stamps (new this month!) for my card.

I discovered that I didn't have ANY 8.5x11 double-sided designer paper, so I had to improvise. I cut down a sheet of 12x12 to use. That gave me a great strip to use for the belly band of this card, as well.

Closed, the card is 4.25x4.25 or so. A belly band is used to keep it closed and to give it character while it is closed.

On the belly band, I used a shadow of the You're Egg-straordinary svg die cuts and embossed it with the Cuttlebug. I inked the folder with white craft ink before sending it through there. The Tabs & Tags dies were used to create the tag on top of the egg, and little pearls embellish the tag and corners.

Open, the card sends "sweet Easter wishes" to the recipient. The eggs on the inside were cut using the Cricut and svg files. Then, they were stamped and layered on shadows. The background is brown, to match the brown in the dp, and is embossed with Swiss dots on the Cuttlebug.

The eggs are colored with Copics, and the front one is mounted with pop dots, as is the sentiment.
