Crazy 4 Challenges Easter Eggs Card

The challenge over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog today, is to use EGGS!

Here's a really simple card I made. It could be called a homage card to the old Sizzix originals dies... do any of you still have a stash of those dies?! I used the little green Eggs die, the red Colander die (I cut out two, and layered up the rims on foam pads), and the red Scalloped Tags Combo die. Good old favourites!!

I was feeling sentimental, and went on Google Images to look at 'Sizzix Originals' (here is the egg die!) and I was happy to see quite a few of my cards on the first page. Don't get me wrong - I love new products, but I also love some of my old ones too!


  1. Yeap I have a stash of those too and probably have both those dies! Eggcellent card :)

  2. SWEET Egg card, Helen! Yup - I too have a stash of older dies. I love that you can pull them out and use them and they still work as good as when you got them. The glitter on the eggs is the perfect touch.

  3. love your colander of eggs.....really fabulous

  4. How adorable to fill your colander with Easter eggs. Love it! It was so fun to play again with the girls at C4C as Guest DT.

  5. Yes, it's wonderful to see the older dies being used with current cards. It's so nice not to always feel like you have to have the latest stuff to still make gorgeous cards. Please keep using these older dies sometimes!!!!
