Ornate Snow Drop Egg

This stamp is a complete contrast in style to our Art Deco Egg stamps. I love the fact that you can put as much or as little into decorating it as you like.

If you would like to try this you will need:

Crimson Cloud Snowdrop Egg Stamp Set

Crimson Cloud New Beginnings Sentiment Stamp Set

Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Large Labels

Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Labels Eight

Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Drawing Inks
Clear Fine Detail  Embossing Powder
Foam Mounting Tape
Pink/Green/White Card Stock

Start by stamping out the Snowdrop Egg in Versamark onto pink cardstock and emboss with clear detail embossing powder.

Paint your leaves Lush Green, the legs and stems in Rich Gold and the snowdrops in Pearl Shine.

Put aside and leave to dry.

When dry cut it out and edge with the Brilliance Pearl Ivy just to give definition.

Cut out sizes 3,4 & 5 of the Decorative Labels Eight.

Use the size 4 die and draw around the outside onto green cardstock then cut out.

Now cut out the largest of the Large Labels dies in green cardstock and in white cardstock. Fix the 2 together as these will form your base.

Layer up your Decorative Labels and mount your Snowdrop egg on top.

Stamp your sentiment onto the smallest Decorative Label die cut with Brilliance Pearl Ivy  and mount onto the card front.

Finally tie your ribbon around the entire frame to hide the foam and create a pretty bow.

Worth the effort I feel!
