Easter Egg Easel Shaped Card - TUTORIAL

I love making shaped cards with my Pazzles Studio Pro Software so, I thought I would have a go at making an easel card using a simple svg shape from 
Lettering Delights with my cutting machine.

I have used a selection of files from the  
Easter Egg Bundle which includes the egg shape, bow, fence and quilled flowers. The shapes all come in  (ai, dxf, eps, gsd, jpg, pdf and svg) file formats.

Firstly, I imported my egg shaped svg into my Pazzles Studio Pro software onto my mat. I cut it out using my recently purchased First Edition 12 x 12 paper pack called Spring Drop. 

I then duplicated the egg shape and moved it to the side to make my base card.  

I selected MIRROR - DUPLICATE - APPLY (selecting my top middle button for positioning).

I then MOVED the top shaped egg so it overlapped the bottom egg slightly.  

Select ALL and then selected WELD.    

Then, I made a perforation line at the join (for the fold) between the 2 egg shapes.  
I also made a perforation  line half way down the top shaped egg.

Once cut out I folded along the perforation lines as in the photo above. 
Now it is beginning to look like an easel shape!

Here are all the elements on my mat before selecting CUT!

Here are all the pieces cut out before being assembled to the base easel card. 

The top of the fence provides the support for the easel card to stand up.  
The eggs on the fence were stickers from my paper pack.

I cut 2 of the bows using my Pazzles Inspiration cutting machine and made myself a band to go behind the bows. Then I used some of my favourite Quilled Flowers also available in the Easter Egg Bundle

The beauty of an easel card is that it easily folds enabling it to fit into your envelope!
