Make Today Crafty with MTC--Eggs for your tree!

egtree_web

Egg trees are great Easter decorations, but let's face it, they are messy to make. Thanks to Lettering Delights and Make the Cut that is no more! And here is how:
In the example I used 
LD Easter Fun Doodles for the Chick and 
LD papers Card Cafe for the printed top
Please link to Lettering Delights for these files on this blog.
6-10" of Ribbon
Assorted glues
Distress inks
Download the Basic Egg files here:
SVG format

In MTC, "texturize" (add digital paper) one egg shape with the opening. 

Use one of the solid shapes for your graphic. Here is how I colored the Doodlebat:

RGB values for grass blades

RGB for grass strip


RGB for the sky

Stack the layers in this order: digital paper, 2 eggs with opening, doodlebat print. Before adding the second solid back layer a piece of ribbon (to make a hanger) between the two solid backs. 

Embellish with Stickles or embossing powders. 

Hang on a branch and enjoy!
