Cracked Up Egg, Sweet Bunny, and Cheery Flower Stems
by Anne Thompson

I'm starting on cards for Easter using the CRACKED UP EGG 99951, SWEET BUNNY 99905, and CHEERY FLOWER STEMS 99947.  I have made two cards with flowers and/or bunnies tucked into the pocket created by the half shell placed on top of the egg.

Card 1:


  • Use a Key Lime notecard as the base.
  • Die cut the Cracked Up Egg from two different pieces of Lawn Fawn plaid paper.
  • Die cut a larger oval from white cardstock using one of the dies from the STITCHED OVAL LAYERS 30069 that is a bit larger than the egg.
  • Attach the white oval to the front of the notecard.
  • Add the plaid oval in the center of the white one.
  • Die cut the Cheery Flower Stems from a scrap of a Key Lime notecard, Key Lime Dot paper, and Squash Dot paper.  Layer the Key Lime Dot stems on top of the solid stems, offsetting them a bit.  Snip off the Squash Dot flowers and and add them on top of the others.  Place pearls in the flower centers.
  • Shorten the stems so they won't stick out below the half shell.  Glue the stems onto the plaid egg.
  • Add the half shell on top of the flowers.
  • Die cut the Sweet Bunny from white cardstock.  Add a scrap of pink and a scrap of black behind his head for the nose and eyes.  Add a tiny bow at his neck.  Pop dot the bunny onto the egg.


Card 2:


  • Die cut the Cracked Up Egg and the larger oval as for the first card.
  • Die cut three of the Sweet Bunnies and attach them to the plaid egg, one flat, and two popped up.
  • Put adhesive around the outside edge of the half shell and place it over the bunnies so it curves out a bit over them. 
  • Add a tiny bow on the half shell.


These cards would be very quick to mass produce once the die cutting was done.

These were the supplies I used:


Can't wait to try tucking other die cuts into this egg shell pocket!  Happy Crafting!

So adorable!

I LOVE the colors and both layouts. You always do great work and TFS.

Thanks, Juanita! It's always encouraging to get feedback on my posts. Still winter here in Maine but spring in my heart...and in the cards I'm making in March! Anne

The half shell pocket is a sweet design and you did a good job showcasing it.

Thanks, Cynthia. And thank you for sending me yet another message. I look forward to the comments I receive on my posts and recognize that you have commented before. Isn't this egg with its shell pocket the perfect thing for Easter?!!! Now if spring would just hurry up and get here...Anne

You are welcome Anne. I always look forward to seeing your work in particular.
Springtime; may it shower you with many blessings this year. 🐇
