Elegant Happy Easter Card

Elegant Easter Card - designed and created by Jenny Pearce ©

Create this flourishing Easter from the Easter Egg-stravaganza Collection as featured here.

You Will Need:
Easter Egg-stravaganza Collection
A5 Cream Card Blank
Peel Off Stickers - Gold Straight Lines
Decorative Edge Scalloped Scissors
Textured Cardstock - Lime green, dark green
Gold 1/8" Eyelets and Eyelet Setting Tool
A5 White Vellum
Sticky Foam Pads
Glue Stick
Computer, Printer and Photo Paper

Print the Easter Egg-stravaganza Corner Flourishes and Easter Egg-stravaganza background design onto good quality photo paper.

Cover the front of an A5 card with the background design. Place a sheet of vellum over the top to fade the background pattern and attach the vellum in place with gold eyelets positioned at the corners.

Apply lengths of straight line gold sticker around the edges of the card.

Cut out the 'Happy Easter' greeting. Mat onto lime green card and cut out with decorative scissors. Mat again onto dark green card and trim around. Glue onto the card and outline with more gold line stickers.

Cut out the Easter Egg corner flourish , leaving a slight white edge all round and attach to the bottom left corner of the card with foam pads.

Top Tip: You could even print out this Corner flourish design numerous times and layer up a decoupage of the group of eggs for alternative results!

The remaining flourish on the printables sheet has been left as an outline for you to colour in your own preferred colour scheme.

*Please note, as always, these designs are created for your own personal use. They should not be submitted to magazines or entered into competitions.
