Clean & Simple Egg-Shaped Cards with Guest Designer Farhana Sarker!

We are thrilled to welcome our friend and guest designer, Farhana Sarker, back to the blog! She’s here today to share how she was inspired by our new spring release to create a fun, clean and simple egg-shaped card. Create this gorgeous spring-inspired card with Farhana’s five easy steps below!

Happy Friday crafty friends! My name is Farhana, and I blog over at Everyday Engineered. I’m so excited to be here on the Ellen Hutson Blog today sharing an Easter card using their new Sweet Spring stamp and die set. I was inspired (probably more manifesting spring!) by pastel colors that make me think of Spring and all the new blossoms coming our way!

To some, this may not be a CAS card… but for my cardmaking style of ink blending and multiple layers, I consider this a CAS card! Below, I’m sharing a few tips on how to match your card to the season.

Step 1:

First, I stamped multiple images from the Sweet Spring set with black ink on to Copic friendly white paper, and colored them using my lightest Copic combos. I always associate pastels with Spring, muted colors with Fall, and blues with Winter! The Copic markers I used are linked in the supply list below.

Step 2:

Next, I used the Essential Eggs Dies to cut out a shaped card front. Then, I used the next size down die to cut a border in gold to match the paint splatter on the card front for a little extra sparkle in the background. After adding the paint, it looked more like an Easter egg!

Step 3:

For the sentiment, I used the new Some Bunny die. I wanted to match it to my colored images, but I didn’t have matching colored card stock. No worries, though – I just used Copic markers to create an ombré that matched my images!

I diecut a few extra of the sentiment to stack them up before adding them to the card front. I like the dimension of stacked word sentiments on a card front. It’s so worth the extra effort!

TIP: Make sure to save the negative of the die cut to keep the sentiment in place for stacking made easy!

Step 4:

To add the back of the card, just score a bit on the top, fold it down and adhere your card front with some strong double sided tape.

Step 5:

Lastly, I finished off the card by adding die cut word sentiment and the colored images to create a small scene. I also used both foam tape and liquid adhesive to create some dimension when layering the images. Check out the finished card below!

Thank you all for following along! I hope that you are inspired to create something with a spring or Easter themed. If you do get crafty, you can tag me @everydayengineered on Instagram, along with @ellenhutsonllc – we’d love to see what you create!

And lastly, thank you to the Ellen Hutson team for having me back on the EH blog!

Take care,
