Happy Easter Shaped Card

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter today. I've been having some fun playing with this Happy Easter Shaker die from Pretty Pink Posh and decided to try and create an Easter Egg shaped card to sit upright since this die has so many beautiful details. 

Very easy to make and even the kids could have fun doing one. Also, joining over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes   

For this card, I started off by die cutting the Happy Easter Shaker die and put it aside while I created a background using alcohol inks.

Next, I die cut the alcohol inked background using an Oval basic shape that fit perfectly behind the Happy Easter Shaker.

From there, I grabbed the next size up from my Oval shape dies to placed on top of an A2 size card and ran it through the die cutting machine.

Next, I scored the front top panel of the oval card at 2" and used a bone folder to make sure it was flat. From there, I die cut a single Oval shape using the same size using teal card stock and glued it down to the bottom half only. 

For the inside of the card, I decided to decorate by adding a Scallop Oval Die as I love the inverted scallops and it fit perfectly over the Oval Shape. 

From there, I couldn't resist but to use this new Bunny Friends stamp set again so I stamped one of the bunnies in the center and colored using my copic markers.
Here is one more Easter Egg shaped card using pink colored card stock, but I ended up using the the Scallop Oval Die on the top of this card as I love the stitching around the oval.

For this card, I created the alcohol background using blue colors.  

Again, I stamped one bunny using the Bunny Friends in the center and colored using my copic markers. 

For the sentiment on both cards, I pulled out Birdie Friends and stamped the banner sign to add a word. Later, I cut off the legs from the banner to have just the rectangle frame. Added foam mount to pop it up as this is what helps to hold the card upright so one can place anywhere.  

Had lots of fun adding several colored jewels:  WatermelonPansy PurpleLemon Drop, Pink Blush and Shamrock for the leaves.
