Happy Easter
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone!  Today is day 2 of the Memory Box Blog Blitz.  There are so many great products in spring release, including new stencils, embossing folders, glitter glues, papers, and of course dies and stamps.  Make sure you check back each day this week to see the designers posts and leave a comment for a chance to win a prize.  

For my card today I created a background using Distress Oxide Inks.  Once I was happy with the background I placed my stencil on top of the paper and used a baby wipe to remove some of the ink.  It gave the background a really soft look.


Next I die cut the Lacework Egg in the center of the background paper.  I glued the background to a white card base.  I die cut the egg again from pink glitter paper and glued the die cut to egg cut out on the card.  I added some twinkle glitter glue to the egg and die cut the words from the same color glitter paper.


To finish the card I added some sequins to embellish it.


Want to win the new Lacework Egg die?  Leave a comment to this post before 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, February 23rd.  One comment will be chosen at random to win the die.  Winners will be announced on the blog on Monday, February 24th at 6 pm EST.  Good luck!
