Shabby Chic Easter

Well, apparently, I'm going through all the styles for my stash of Easter cards this year! I really like how this one turned out - mostly because of that glittery gingham egg! To make it, I covered the gingham paper with a sheet of adhesive (It was a 6x6" double sided clear adhesive sheet by Scrapbook Adhesives). Then I peeled off the top and sprinkled pink "Fairy Dust" over top. I should have gotten a closer photo of the egg; the glitter is just gorgeous. Then I die cut it with a Spellbinders Nestled Egg die and adhered it to the largest Labels Four die cut and made a tag of it. I made the banner simply by scoring it and cutting the edges. The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink and the chick stamp is from American Crafts. On a whim, I used three mini pom poms as an accent where I would normally use pearls or gems. The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket "Honey Pie" - it's an oldie but a goodie! I tied the double bow using pegs. You can see how in this amazing tutorial by Becca Feeken. She is my bow hero :)

I used Distress ink on the bow to shabby it up a bit and I used white acrylic paint on a dry sponge to go around the edges of the kraft card base.

Thanks for taking a peek!


  1. Very nice! I love the bow on top! And the little pink pom poms and the little chick are adorable!

  2. Awww, sweet.The big bow reminds me of a little girls dress or hat on Easter morning, Amy! Cute pink pompoms~

  3. You know, that egg reminds me of those sugar eggs I used to get as a kid. They were all pretty and sparkly like that. You're making me hungry....
