Terrific TuesDIES #5 Circle Shaped Easter Egg Card How To

Happy Terrific TuesDIE crafty friends!
Today is Terrific TuesDIE #5 and have I got a treat for you! First let me show you what I designed.
cheapo egg die circle shaped card
I created this fun circle shaped card using the scalloped stitched circle dies. I then featured the exclusive egg die from Cheapo Dies.


score circle top
  • I started by cutting out two of the largest circle stitched scallop dies from plain white cardstock.
  • I then used my score board and scored a line about a half inch from the top of only one of the dies.

add glue
  • I used some glue and put some glue on the die with the score line. I only glued above the score line.
  • I lined up the scallops from the dies and then glued them together.

finished base
This is what the card base looks like opened up. This is the perfect alternative to creating shaped cards with dies. This way allows you to keep the shape of the die without losing a portion of it to create a “fold.” Now on to creating the top.

For the egg, I started by cutting out several eggs from white cardstock. I then cut one out in Blue and one in Fuchsia. After I cut them out, I stacked the white ones to give them some depth. I then adhered them to a piece of plain white cardstock. I then pieced the blue and Fuchsia pieces into the the white egg. I used some of my green Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen for the tiny green accents. After I finished all of that, I added one last white one to the top to give it all a clean look. I then used my Spectrum Noir plain sparkle pen to give the top layer some shimmer as well as the blue and Fuchsia cardstock. I finished off the centers of the flowers in the egg with some tiny sequins.

For the mats I simply cut out a circle from my green cardstock and then used the next size down scallop circle stitched die to cut out the pretty patterned paper. The paper is from the Doodlebug Bunnyville Paper Pad.

Here is a closer look at my sentiment. I created it and printed it out and then shaped the little banner. I added a tiny button from my stash to finish it off.

RG Studio 360 Magnolia Notes Card.With FREE SVG FILE

Happy Sunday crafty friends!
Hope you’re all doing well. Today I am sharing my first project for the RG Studio 360 design team! I had the opportunity to work with the new card class download Magnolia Notes. Such stunning images to work with! Here is what I came up with.
RG Studio 360
My card is an A2 size. I started with a white cardstock base. The mat is another piece of white cardstock. I used an embossing folder to give it the pretty texture.

Next I printed out the pieces of the flower and then cut them so I would have various layers.

colored cu2
I used my Chameleon Colored Pencils to color my layers.

Next I began to assemble my flowers. Here is a closer look at them. I added some foam tape between the layers to give them some lift.

For the center of the large flower, I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony for the center. I also used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to give the flowers some soft sparkle.

I mounted the flowers onto a white cardstock mat and then mounted that onto the decorative frame layer. It is an SVG file I created. I accented the decorative frame with some Nuvo Crystal Drops, Ivory Seashell.

Here is one final look at the completed card. The one thing my card does not have is a sentiment. I purposely left it without one. I wanted the card to look very clean and be a white on white with the exception of the pretty blooms. I wanted them to take center stage!
