Decorative Easter Egg Card

I thought I would share a card tutorial with you today. Sorry the lighting is so awful! I have the hardest time getting an ounce of natural light in my crafting corner of the office. I am working on it though!

This year I thought I would have some fun with egg shaped cards. The first thing I did was cut out two egg shapes using my Cricut with the Doodlecharms cartridge. One of the eggs will be the front of the card and one will be the back. I chose purple (front) and pink (back).

Once you have your egg shapes, you need to attach them. The best way to do this is to score and fold the back egg (pink). That way, it will bend when you open the card, but the front egg (purple) will still look pretty and unfolded. I used a ruler and bone folder to create the crease. I glued the two eggs together at the top where the folded flap was.

Now it is time to decorate your egg! I wanted mine to have pretty, lacy ribbon running through the middle, so I punched some holes and threaded it through.

Next, I added some cute embellishments with more ribbon and glitter.

The final touches consisted of a few little buttons at the bottom and a nice, handwritten message inside. 
Again, sorry for the picture quality!
I hope you will make one of these adorable Easter Egg Cards and share it with me. I would love to see pictures. The possibilities for this card are seriously endless! Let your imagination run wild.
