May you have a wonderful Easter time
and may spring fill you with peace, joy and new energy.

For this year’s card we decided to play with the motif of a Fabergé egg, made of paper. Both the fact that these eggs are heavily decorated and that they have a surprise inside made for a fun challenge (and, of course, the egg itself was a rather obvious choice for Easter). We searched the net a bit for an inspiration of how to make the egg itself and the rest almost designed itself (but it didn’t cut nor fold itself – that took bits of two days).

    Very nicely done. I can imagine that getting the egg right must have been the most difficult step.

    • Thank you! Initially we wanted to do the egg smoother but the polygons turned out better looking (and easier to do) in the end.
