Created this Easter card inspired by Frenchie. You can click here to see Frenchie's video on how to make. I did not have the Stampin' Up Oval dies and did not have Spellbinder Oval dies in the 4 1/2" size I wanted. I used George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge to make the Ovals. I used scissors to cut the cracked egg part. Used SU bird punch for Chick. Used 2 different stamps for sentiments: Inky Antics Easter Chick "Not yolkin' ..." for humor sentiment on inside of Egg and SU Teeny Tiny Wishes "Happy Easter" sentiment on front of Egg. Used a Martha Stewart Tulip punch and addedd the Tulips to cover the brad.
