Oh Easter Tree, Oh Easter Tree How Lovely are thy Eggies!

 Hello and Welcome! Today's card is a fun Easter card using Karen Burniston's Christmas Trees Pop Stand, only as an Easter Tree! 

For this card, I started with an A2 sized top fold card using heavy weight smooth white cardstock. I die cut three rectangles of patterned paper I had in my stash, using Karen Burniston's Rectangle - Crosshatch dies in the largest size. 

From there I centered the patterned paper on my card base and taped down the die that holds the tree stand and die cut it the flaps out.

I die cut the tree out using pastel blue, purple and yellow cardstock. Then I used the tiny eggs from Karen Burniston's Spring Animals die set and cut them from blue, purple, yellow, pink and green pastel cardstock. I glued them onto the tree and added glitter gel and Glossy Accents to the eggs. I had some remaining eggs left so I added a few at the base of the tree, like they had fallen. 

I die cut two panels out using smooth white cardstock and cut the edges with MFT's Stitched Basic Edges 2 die to create a scalloped edge. 

From there, I die cut the "Happy Easter" sentiment from the Easter Charms die set twice. Once from glitter blue cardstock and once from black cardstock. I also die cut two eggs that come from the Easter Charms and the Spring Animals sets. I die cut the chocolate bunny from the Easter Charms as well. Then I glued them all together to create the top of the inside of the card. I colored the eggs with Copic markers. 

I die cut the bunny and chick from the Spring Animals as well as the baskets. Then I added the tiny eggs I had left over from the tree. 

I had a sticker sheet from a paper pack of Easter paper I bought and used them to decorate the inside of the card as well. 

I stamped the "may your basket be full of joy" sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Eggstra Amazing Easter stamp set. 

For the front of the card, I used the same patterned paper as the inside. I die cut a small rectangle using the purple cardstock and then a smaller one again from smooth white cardstock. 

Then I added more stickers from the sticker sheet to create a pretty front for my Easter card. 

I love how this card turned out and it shows you that even a Christmas die set can be used for other holidays/themes. 

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
