Stitched Bunny Egg

Hi everyone

Today I have a small 4bar sized Easter card to share. My main technique for the card was stitching on cardstock =) Read on to see more!

For this card, I combined an egg stamp with a stamp that is supposed to be the flame under a space rocket, both stampsets from Paper Smooches, to make my egg with bunny ears. I made myself stitching templates out of the stamps, and stitched it all with a back stitch onto a piece of kraft cardstock. I used only three strands of the embroidery floss for the stitching on this card (embroidery floss is made up of 6 strands, I pulled them apart to have two lengths of three strands each)
I made a video about how to make stitching templates out of stamps a looong time ago, and you can watch that here. (Please don't look at the horrible state of my nails in that video... They were really bad back then!)

I stamped the greeting from Lawn Fawn using an ink color that coordinated with the embroidery floss color I had used for the inside of the bunny ears, and cut it into a flag/banner shape. The greeting banner was attached to the stitched piece with foam adhesive, and the stitched piece was attached to the 4 bar card base made out of light blue/turquoise cardstock from Hero Arts with foam adhesive too. Oh, and I rounded the corners of the stitched piece to give it a softer look as well.
