Easter Eggs - Pattern Paper Scrap Buster

I love cards that help me use up all the fun bits of leftover pattern paper.  Let's face it, we all do it.  We save every tiny scrap of our pattern papers, thinking "I'm sure I can still get something out of this."  I doubled down on these eggs and went to town.  I used a die from Simon Says Stamp, but any egg die or even a small oval would work for these cards.  

I was inspired by a couple of pins from Pinterest and set about cutting eggs.  I kind of lost track when cutting my eggs, I ended up cutting enough eggs to create 15 Easter cards.  These were fast and easy, a great card idea for mass production.

I pulled any scrap from my stash that was large enough to cut an egg from.  Then the eggs were divided into stacks of four based on colors or patterns that coordinated.  

Once I had my eggs all cut I die cut some white pannels.  Next, I laid out my eggs to decided on stamp placement.  

After stamping each panel I  glued my eggs in place.  The finishing touch was to use colored sewing thread to tie my eggs together before adhering the panel to a card base.

All the patterns made for some fun eggs and cute card results.  I think it's hard to pick a favorite from all of these.
