1. Take a piece of yellow paper from the solid colour paper pack. Using a ruler and pencil, measure and mark the width and height of the card blank on the back.
2. Carefully cut out with scissors, or you can use a craft knife and ruler for a neater edge. Then stick to the card front, pressing out any air bubbles. Trim edges if needed.
3. Either draw a small egg shape, approximately 1.5 x 2cm and cut from thin card, and use this template to draw an egg shape on the back of 6 different patterned papers.
4. Then draw two egg shapes on the right side of the patterned paper and cut out. Using our photograph as a guide, draw on geometric and scalloped designs using a black fine line pen.
5. Cut out alternate pink and blue alphabet stickers to spell out HAPPY EASTER. Arrange the letters and the eggs on the card front.
6. Once you are happy with the positioning, peel off the backing from the thickers and press down. Apply a little glue to the backs of the paper eggs and stick in place.
