This month’s blog tour is some Eggs-tra fun ideas for Easter.
I once saw a card that said ‘if you can find the carefully hidden Easter egg inside this card, I will give you a KISS!’
And then inside was a HUGE egg not hidden at all. That made me smile and had a fun pay-off when I gave it to my then current boyfriend.
So each year I create a card that reminds me of that card long ago.
Here are the details on how to do just that!
Then I cut a piece of the Sale-a-Bration DSP to a 2 1/2x 6″ piece, and put it OVER the guides in the tag punch to punch the end.
Then put the ribbon thru the holes
and layer the tags matting them and hiding the ribbon at the same time.
Trim off to just under 5 1/2″ to make sure the tag fits in the envelope!
Here is the cardstock that makes up the base of the card, a piece that is half a sheet cut longways, 4 1/4 x 11″
Score this sheet at 1″, 2 3/4″,3 3/4″, 5 1/2″, and then flip and do the same from the other end. You will end up at the 5 1/2″ mark, but instead of scoring again, make a cut on the score line you already did that is a tad over 2 1/2″ long. Start at the middle of the cardstock ( 2 1/8″) and cut 1 1/4″ in each direction.
Trust me, it works with our Stampin’ Up! cutter and will be easy!
Fold on all the score lines and put the matted tag into and thru the slit in the base cardstock.
Press the other end of the base piece to this one.
I put ‘grass’ on the front of my base.
Here is a side view that is easier to see what you are doing here.
I also attached another line of grass to the middle on a folded ‘hinge’ piece because I liked the 3-D look!
And this is what it looks like folded up ready to go in the envelope! Fits great and has a surprise of that BIG egg.
Now I am off to find my hubby and see if he can find the ‘hidden’ egg for a kiss… hehe. See you next time!
