Hi Everyone!

I'm back with another project that I first featured on the CutCardstock Blog.

There are so many different ways to decorate Easter eggs.  I think the pretttiest and most elegant is the embossed egg.  I've actually never tried this in real life, but I've admired others' handiwork.  The raised images against a colored background on that perfectly shaped egg are so beautiful.  I decided to try this on a card using various colors of  Curious Metallic Cardstock.

 

To start, I chose swatches of VioletteLimeBotanicRed Lacquer, and Mandarin and cut those out using an egg-shaped die.

To prepare my eggs for embossing, I used a powder bag over the top of each to prevent any extra embossing powder from sticking.

I used the Flower Swirl Vine wooden stamp from Hero Arts and Versamark Ink to stamp images onto the eggs.

I worked in batches and heat embossed the eggs with Wow Opaque Bright White embossing powder.  I love how the bright white embossing "pops" against those shimmery eggs!

I assembled a couple of different cards with Easter greetings making the eggs the focal point.
