Picture of Hidden Easter Eggs Card
Time for the Easter egg hunt!  They aren't hidden that well, but what would be the fun in that?  They are just too cute to hide away!

Here is what you need to make one of these cards yourself.

Supplies:
  • Green Paper
  • Other colored papers of choice (I used pastel pink, green, yellow, blue and purple)
  • White Paper
  • Blank Greeting Card or cut out your own
  • Glue and/or Sticky Squares (I used both)
  • Silhouette Machine from Silhouette America
  • File (attached zipped up cause I can't attach it straight)

This is the boring part, creating the card.

I'll give you the gist.  Please ask if you have questions!

I created some grass and then copy, pasted, and welded them together to make it stretch the length of the card.

I figured out how many I would need and how far I would need to stretch the bottom so you wouldn't see the white behind, you will see this later when the card is assembled.

Cut them out in green paper.  I used the Patterned Paper Preset but put the speed down to 1.  Make sure your blade is clean.  I cut this out and then it was all messy so I cleaned the blade area and that really helped.  Makes a big difference.


PS: I used al lot of the Modify features with the project including Weld, Subtract, and Crop.  Just plan around.  I always try something and if didn't turn out the way I wanted, I undo and try again!

I love this idea. If I download the silhouette idea will it work on Cricut? I am new to paper cutting machines.

I don't think it will. I think each program has its own file format.

I think this is a brilliant card for Easter, so adorable! I am having trouble opening the zipped file, is there a trick I am missing?

I don't think so. You should just need to click on it to download it, then, once it is downloaded, click on it to open/unzip it. Then the unzipped file should be in your downloads. It will be a .studio file.
