Hello, everyone! It’s Nancy back with you today!
Today I’m going to share some simple ways to add extra
texture and dimension to a simple mini slimline Easter card.
Today I am using:
Here’s the finished card:
See the texture and dimension?
Such a pretty cut…in all the pretty pastel colors!
Here’s how I did it:
I cut out the pieces, as is, using the SVG file.
I then cut a second layer of grass, slightly shorter, in a darker shade of green.
I also chose the lovely pastel plaid paper for my background.
Here the egg layers are adhered together.
They’re lovely just like that.
However, look what happens when you add some simple Stickles.
Doesn’t that add some lovely sparkly texture?

Using my fingers on the lighter piece, I curl all the blades of grass.
For the darker piece, which will be in the back,
I curl just the tips of the longer blades.
Here they are layered together:
The extra, darker cut, along with the curling, adds wonderful dimension!
I then added the plaid paper to my pink card base,
and adhered the grass in place along the bottom.
Then it was just a matter of tucking the eggs into place:
