Cracked Egg Card for a Friend


It's Crackerbox Palace Friday and today I am sharing a fun card I made with some great stamps from Crackerbox Palace. I found this card on Pinterest, but there were no directions on how to make the egg open and close. I figured out how to use Stampin’ Up’s word window punch and a brad through the layers to open and close this cute egg card. I cut the outside yellow patterned egg with a large Nestabilities oval die and the smaller stitched ovals with dies from My Creative Time. I made an Easter card with this idea, but Crackerbox Palace’s “slightly cracked” stamps are perfect for this cracked egg card for a friend. This is what the card looks like closed:


I stamped and paper pieced the cheery bluebird, colored the flowers with gel pens and attached with pop dots to one side of the cracked egg.


**As a present to you from Crackerbox Palace, all the  stamps  on this card will be 20% OFF for one week! What a deal! **

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp and Crafty Gals.
