Leaf -trimmed egg

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown which has a St Patrick-themed palette for us this week (gold, light green, dark green and white).

As you know I’m in the throes of Easter cardmaking and when I saw the colour combo I was a little perplexed – how could I use this in an Easter card. Then I stumbled across some amazing Easter cards on Instagram. The designer had used some leafy die cuts on an egg – suddenly inspiration struck! I pulled out the Poppystamps Sylvan Sprig, a Memory Box egg die and distress inks and got to work!

I was originally going to add a die cut gold sentiment, but in the end I used the Marianne Design Art Texture Mesh die for the gold accent and a stamped sentiment by Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by!
