easter card idea with essentials by ellen

Looking for a quick Easter card to make & send? Let me show you this sweet one I made today with Essentials by Ellen stamps & dies.

I really wanted a candy themed card and I spent an embarrassingly long time wondering what I could make before I thought of making "chocolate eggs" wrapped in spring colored foil.

The candy eggs are just 3 cardstock egg die cuts layered together and colored brown with a Copic marker (brown cardstock would be even better but I didn't have any, LOL).

For the colored foil, I just grabbed a piece of aluminum foil from the kitchen and applied a little bit of Ranger alcohol inks.

I wrapped the cardstock eggs in the colored foil and nestled them in a little "Easter grass" made from green tissue paper fringe. My paper fringe addiction continues!

Thanks for stopping by!
