This is just a prototype... a model. My next egg will look a bit neater.
|Opening the card reveals the inside. I used an embossing folder on the inside egg. (Sizzix, Tropical Paisley). I made the inside egg a bit smaller than the outside cracked egg so that it wouldn't show edges behind.|
|This is the inside egg.|
|This is the outside cracked egg. I cut this from cardstock.|
|This pattern is a bit smaller so that when you glue/tape the decorative paper on the cardstock, you have a border.|
I scanned the templates into Photoshop. Since I no longer have a compatible draw/paint program, I could only save this as a jpeg so you may have to adjust the size a bit. On my computer it prints out the correct size.... but I print from Photoshop, so I'm not sure how it will work on your computer.
I hope you enjoy this, I thought it was fun. Well, I thought it was fun after I finally figured out how to make it! lol You may want to have the crack open from the top. Somehow, in my brain it needs to open from the bottom. If you make one please show me I'd love to see what you come up with!!
Guess what I just found while looking through my Spellbinders' Inventory list? That's right, nested egg shapes!!! Then we wouldn't even need a template whoo hoo:)
