EGG-straordinary EGG-cellence

The other day I suddenly realized that despite all the Easter cards I've made this year with my awesome Eyelet Outlet goodies, I hadn't yet made a card with our Colored Egg Brads. So clearly I *had to* make one more Easter card; it's on the EO Blog today!

Something I discovered a couple of years ago is that standard half inch washi tape is exactly the right width to fit between the staves of most sheet music. Which, as you know, is one of my favorite backgrounds for cards; I use it exactly like ordinary patterned paper. As a bonus, the strong horizontal lines of sheet music mean that lining up tape and brads and bling is a breeze... you don't even have to measure!

For this card I've combined the Rabbit Washi Tape with Rabbit Brads and Colored Egg Brads, then added a sentiment with two different sets of alphabet stickers so the "EGGCELLENT" would stand out even more!

I'd like to wish a very Happy Easter to all who are celebrating; and an especially wonderful First Weekend of April to everyone else! ♥


  1. Super cute Easter card, great tip on the washi tape/music sheet. I'm still looking to use my bunny tape and bunnies this year. the dark purple base colour really frames the card beautifully and of course love your use of the washi tape.

  2. I am always amazed at what you come up with using brads. Such fun awesome cards, and the texture they add...fabulous.

  3. So cute, Lauren. I love it! :)

  4. Inspiring ideas with brad use. I’ve tended not to put them to use in recent years...until the Grandkids were alerted to my stash. They love them! Your card gives me a few ideas! 😀
