Egg-stra Special Easter Egg Cards

I had an idea in my head...I wanted to make Easter Egg Cards for a handful of very special people in my life.

I discovered that if I cut out the oval shape with the mirror feature on my Cricut, that it would turn out to be an egg shaped card. I then wanted to decorate it with bright colored flowers...so I went to cutting more on the Cricut and used the George cartridge to cut the flowers. I cut the zig zag lines with my large zig-zag scissors. I also recut everything with black cardstock to shadow each piece. I thought this would make it all stand out so well. I used stickles for the centers of the flowers.

Hope you Enjoy!


  1. Cathy love the egg card. What tape did you use to cut out the oval?

  2. The cartridge used to cut out the oval was Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More. I used the 'mirror' feature. Once cut, I was able to fold it in half and thereby had a card.

  3. I love it! They are so colorful and bright. Great job... luv ya

  4. Fun card...gives me a super idea for easter (esp. since I have few bunny stamps!).
