And now on my project...
I actually took pictures as I was working to give you a mini tutorial on the card I made.
I paired the Easter Egg Dies up with this cute little rabbit stamp. I'm still addicted to making shaped cards... so again I pulled out my Spellbinder's Grand Dies to create the card base and several layers.
LEFT: put a piece of wide Scor-Pal Tape on to card stock. Cut the solid Egg shape.
RIGHT: Cut the Scroll Egg Die using pink paper. You can see the die cut nice and clean. I use a Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine and no shims to cut this.
Remove the protective covering from the Scor-Pal Solid Egg Shape, revealing the sticky surface. Add the scroll pink die cut directly over the adhesive. The open areas are still sticky, so be careful not to touch them or get anything stuck!
Next, I added Transparent Micro-Fine Glitter to the Egg. Above you can see that I liberally dumped some glitter over the egg. I used my finger to push the glitter in to all of the open areas. The glitter immediately grabs to the adhesive.
After completely covering and rubbing the glitter in to all the open adhesive areas, use a hard bristled brush to help remove any stray glitter.
Above you can see that I stamped the little rabbit and cut it out with a Circle Nestie. I airbrushed a little BG23 while the paper was still in the die. I also added my piercing while the paper was still in the die, using the inside edge as my guide to stay neat. I used an Xacto Knife to cut out the little rabbit paw. I lifted the paw edge up and tucked the egg under it.
Now on to the coloring. Since the egg will be covering up the right side, I didn't bother coloring that area. You can see the Copics I used in the above picture.
I added the cute "Somebunny" sentiment on the inside.
You can see I added a few more details to the front of the card.... Adhesive Gems, Bow and Glossy Accents over the Eyes and Nose. The bunny circle is popped up with foam tape to raise it up a little higher. All of the paper is from Jillibean's new 6s6 paper pad - Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup---adorable little Easter patterns!!!
