DIY Marbled Easter cards by Emma of Showpony

Easter cards made from your child’s unique artwork will make a lovely gift for any relatives that you might not be able to visit over the holidays. The other bonus is that you might finally find another home for some of the growing piles of priceless artworks created by your talented off spring. There’s only so much you can put on the fridge and the recycling bin is overflowing!

To create these Easter Cards, Download Easter Card Template and print onto the thickest Card your printer will take.

What you'll need:
* Some painted paper, an 8cm x 10cm piece will be enough
* A blank piece of card 11cm x 11cm
* Craft knife
* Metal ruler
* Tape
* Cutting mat.

Step1: Firstly score your fold mark onto your printed card. Then cut out the card rectangle using the printed cutting marks. To make life easier don’t cut right to the edges if you do this you’ll chop your guide marks (see the image below)  Also cut out the egg shape leaving an egg-shaped hole.

Step2: All you need to do now is stick your painted paper behind the hole and stick the blank card piece over the top to keep everything neat and tidy.
