Elegant Easter Greeting Card

By:

Create a stunning Easter greeting card using STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam, stickers and metallic paint. The recipient will be thrilled that you didn't opt for a store-bought card when he or she sees the three-dimensional egg jumping off the card.

 Elegant Easter Card

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Egg, 3"
  • Metallic ivory/pink acrylic paint
  • Pink/gold pigment powder
  • Papers, one sheet each: decorative floral scroll; coordinating cardstock; rice paper
  • Stickers: gold script alphabet; coordinating floral border
  • Coordinating satin ribbon, 1/2" x 1/4 yd.
  • Serrated knife
  • Candle stub or paraffin
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Wide flat paintbrush
  • Disposable palette
  • Water basin
  • Paper towels
  • Scissors
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Paper glues: laminating; quick-dry

Steps:

  1. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin; cut foam egg in half lengthwise. Set aside one half for a second card or future project.
     
  2. Cut 7" x 10" piece from cardstock; score and fold to measure 5" x 7". Cut 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" piece from scroll paper; adhere to center front of card.
     
  3. Cut 3-1/4" x 6" piece from cardstock; adhere to center of scroll paper. Trim and apply border stickers across top and bottom of cardstock piece.
     
  4. Tear rice paper sheet into small strips. Use wide brush and laminating glue to adhere paper pieces to foam half-egg, completely covering surface. Use brush to smooth out wrinkles. Let dry completely.
     
  5. Paint egg metallic ivory. While paint is still slightly tacky to the touch, use brush to dust egg with pigment powder.
     
  6. Apply alphabet stickers to cardstock just above lower border sticker, spelling "Easter Greetings" as shown.
     
  7. Tie satin ribbon into bow around center of egg. Use paper glue to adhere egg to card front.
