I went for a wee fun card for the second offering and tried to do a bit of up-cycling at the same time. The background was created using leftover strips of patterned papers from previous projects. (almost got my tongue in a twist even writing that) lol! The gold and chocolate egg shapes were cut using the X cut dies and embossed with one of the new tri boss folders from Papermania. Before embossing we cut them in half with an X cut scalloped oval die. We coloured and cut around the little bear from a Forever Friends springtime set of clear stamps. He was then popped onto the back of the lower half of the egg shape and this piece attached with foam pads to the chocolate coloured paper. We matched up the top half of the egg with the bottom, poked a hole and attached it with a nice wee leaf brad which tied in nicely with the embossed design. The whole thing was layered up and we punched two flowers, again from scrap pieces, with a Tonic punch and added them to the sentiment to take the baroness off the finished card. The "surprise" got lots of awww's.
