Easter Train


Greetings everyone and thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments on my last card.  Also, a big thanks to all of you who have joined my blog it really is so nice.

My whimsical card today uses the Classic Egg which I found to be just the right size and shape for the little carts.   I used a circle punch to cut out the dip in the first cart and then added wheels and some left over pieces from the Valencia Border for the tail. For the rest of the carts I trimmed off part of the egg shape and filled the carts with the cracked eggs, nestled bird, blooming violet and petite cake.

Materials:
Memory Box Tender leaf (bird wing , Classic Egg (might be discontinued), Blooming Violet, Valencia Border (cart tail) & Petite Cake
Poppy Stamps Fuzzy Bunnies & Nestled Bird
Martha Stewart Grass, cracked egg & Doily Lace punch Pink Top border)
EK Success Paper Shaper 1/2" circle punch (Black wheel)
Fiskars 1/4" hand punch (white circle for wheel)
Crimper (for grass)

  18. Good for you getting such a cute jump start on Easter. Loved the way you used these MB eggs to make your little train too. So colorful & cute. I just got a partial order with some MB dies & new stencils yesterday, but not had time to play yet. TFS such a creative way to use this egg! Hugs
