Digging through my "Never Been Used Stuff" (NBUS)

 When I saw the Inkspirational Challenge my thoughts went to the Easter Egg Die from Elizabeth Craft Designs can you imagine my surprise when I realized I had never even opened it, I think it's at least 4 years old and I have no idea why I have never used it, it's so lovely it doesn't need to be just Easter. 

The fancy part of the egg was cut from white stardream cardstock layered on the sparkly cardstock I found at a dollar + store. There are 2 each of 5 different ombre colours. I cut the sentiment out of the same glitter cardstock and twice out of heavy weight white cardstock and layered them. 

Side view to show how the sentiment looks and at the back the small bit was cut off the base so it stands on it's own. I watched a video from Elizabeth Craft Designs on how to do this. 

I don't think I needed to cut so much off but the first cut I made was not straight, you know the old saying measure twice cut once. The egg shape I used for the sentiment is also a NBUS, the sentiment is a very vintage Hero Arts wood block sentiment 

I am entering this in:

Inkspirational Challenge ~~ #259 Technique Challenge ~~ Shaped Cards

NBUS ~~ Challenge #35

Happy Little Stampers ~~ Anything Goes with Dies.

Thanks for stopping by and stay healthy, stay safe.
