1. Create a layered card base using cardstock and patterned papers. Start with a base of kraft cardstock. Add a second layer of yellow patterned paper, followed by a third layer that was punched at the bottom with a scalloped border punch.

2. Adhere a small piece of doily under the scalloped border. Cut a thin strip of the yellow patterned paper to go across the center of the card.

3. Adhere seam binding ribbon across the center of the card using Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive.

4. Cut a piece of recycled chipboard that is 3" x 7" and fold in half to create a 3" x 3.5" pocket. Hand cut or die cut an Easter egg shape from the top flap of the folded chipboard. I used a template that I downloaded from the internet.

5. Press each edge of the chipboard into embossing ink and embossing powder and then heat set using an embossing tool. Using a Q-Tip or sponge to apply the ink, repeat the steps above to emboss the inside curve around the egg.

6. Lay a piece of batting between the chipboard flaps, followed by a piece of fabric. 

*Tip: to keep the fabric from slipping and moving, lightly adhere them with a bit of High Tac adhesive.

7. Close the chipboard together and machine stitch around the edge and the inside egg.

8. Adhere lace trim along the bottom of the chipboard and ruffled paper doily across the top edge using Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive. Affix chipboard panel to the card base using Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares.

9. Add a hand-stamped tag and a bow and button to the left of the card using Extreme Adhesive Squares. Embellish with adhesive pearls.

Add ribbons, and use the extreme adhesive squares to add the ribbon-square to the card.

Using Raisen's (in hindsight - the ribbon was fairly thick, so I should probably have used U cut it foam here instead) and add the egg-shape onto the ribbons.
