A fun Easter card!





So I woke up this morning with a plan!! I was bound and determined to attempt to make my own pattern to house a couple of Reese Peanut Butter eggs to give away as a Happy Easter card! I started out with very good intentions (and a very good attitude!) and decided half way through that this was going to be a huge success! Then about 3/4 of the way through the swear words starting forming! I mean it is only paper and a ruler...how tough can this be, right?! More swear words! My pattern was off (!!!) just barely, but enough so that I noticed it and despite my best efforts couldn't manage to correct! More swear words! So, I scrapped my pattern and decided I would try one more time from scratch! I consoled myself with the fact that if it didn't work this time that I would just eat ALL of the chocolate and shred my card and pattern! Big grin! I managed to pull it off and it came out mostly even! : ) This was the end result! It closes like a book and opens up to two pockets filled with Reese eggs! I used a SU! wheel and stamped the entire thing while flat and the used my corner rounder to make the top edges and inside pocket tops scalloped! I glued a cream colored ribbon around the outside edge to use as a bow fastener and added a scallop with bunny to the front center! I tucked some purple ribbon under my scallop and added some paper punched eggs and some sparkly bling flowers! I added another bunny and a happy sentiment on the inside! Viola'! Happy Easter!

Recipe:
Stamps: SU! Butterflies and Blossom Wheel and Studio G Clear Stamps
Paper: SU! Pale Plum, Whisper White, So Saffron, Pixie Pink and Tempting Turquoise
Extras: SU! Scallop punch, Egg punch, Cream colored ribbon, Flower bling, Purple Polka dotted ribbon

This is the sweetest pattern ever. How neat that it closes like a book! Chocolate is a homeopathic cure for frustration; I'm sure of it, ;0) Mel

Awww, great job on your candy holder. It reminds me of the Lifesavers storybooks.
