When you need a card in less than 5 minutes....

Take some oval shapes, cut them into pieces and swap them around. Smack on some grass and stamp it! Just had to share my last minute Easter cards I made yesterday. I had 30 minutes til it was time to be at Easter lunch and I realized I hadn't made any cards yet. OOPS.

So while my pup was running around the house in bunny ears and my hubby was hollering how he's STARVING, I whipped these up in a flash and I have to say...I love them!

I used the large Petite Oval Nesties and ran them through my Big Shot. I chose some fun patterned papers (3 diff patterns) and ran them through all at once. I chopped off the bottom edges (not that you can see them) so that they looked more like eggs rather than ovals. I kept them tightly layered and sliced them into threes. Then I simply swapped the patterns around and glued them all down to the card. I stamped Happy Easter in the top corner and then added a few embossed lines with my Scor-pal so it didn't look so plain. Lastly I sliced up some celery cardstock to look like grass and placed that along the bottom edge. DONE! I think I cranked out 10 of these in literally 30 minutes!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Egg Hunt day yesterday, I myself enjoyed the food, food and more food. :) I think I'm still enjoying the food as a matter of fact. I mean, you can't just leave an uneaten cupcake home alone right?? ;)

Happy belated Egg day!!!

So if the Easter Bunny ate all your eggs, now you know why!
