Mini Easter cards

Our DeForest Scrappers group started out with a monthly meeting to create 3x3 cards for our local Meals on Wheels program.  This month, we added a new group to. make cards for, the local hospital Neonatal Intensive Care unit.  These families spend a lot of time at the hospital and the staff likes to give out cards to these families and we are glad to be able to help out with this project.  We make about 70 cards for this group so the Cricut "fill sheet" feature comes in very handy for projects like this.

Here is the process:

Steps and supplies used:
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge - fill page with 2" egg shapes on page 57 (note, this won't be a perfect size but is really close and you can trim from there - or hide the extra in the grass!)

Artiste Cricut Cartridge - page 73, cut a bunch of grass at .5" with green paper (or just fussy cut your own strips, it doesn't have to be perfect!)

Use the wide part of your choice of Shin Han markers to shade in the eggs (leave them on the mat, it makes it much easier to color all of them more quickly)

Stamp with Archival Black ink using Colored Egg Occasions (retired stamp) but the egg from the Easter Wishes stamp set would work also

Assemble cards by cutting strips of pink paper and then layer a strip of the pink polka dot washi tape (love the washi tape!), add your egg, grass and a sentiment to complete the card.
