Easter Egg Card with Swarovski Crystal

Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.

STEP 1
Cut a 36x17 cm rectangle out of cardboard.
STEP 2
Without cutting all the way through the cardboard, carve 2 lines, 12 cm apart into cardboard as shown in the illustration. These lines will help later in folding the card.
STEP 3
To make the egg, stencil, print and cut out the egg pattern (see step 3 of the illustration) with the dimensions of 10.5 cm height and 7.5 cm width.
STEP 4
Place the stencil onto the pattern paper and trace an outline of the egg and cut out the pattern.
STEP 5
Glue the pattern exactly on the middle of the cardboard.
STEP 6
Punch holes into the pattern with the help of a needle.
STEP 7
Thread the embroidery needle with 1 m of embroidery yarn and make a knot on one end of the thread. Pierce the needle through to the front side of the cardboard.
STEP 8
Stitch over to the back side through the next hole and repeat this step until you reach the other end of the pattern. Similarly stitch the second row as well as shown in illustration.
STEP 9
Stitch over to the point where the Swarovski crystal Beads will be attached on the front side of the pattern, stitching under the existing stitches to secure the thread well.
STEP 10
Insert the first Swarovski crystal Pendant article 6690 and stitch over to the back side and repeat to secure the Pendant. Repeat this step to attach the second Pendant as shown in illustration.
STEP 11
Split the embroidery thread into two parts at the back side of the pattern and pierce the needle over to the front side where the next crystal will be attached.
STEP 12
Insert the first Swarovski crystal Bead article 5000 6mm Pacific Opal and form a loop before you pierce through to the back side. Repeat this step to apply the following Swarovski crystal Beads:
  • 5000 6mm Aquamarine
  • 5754 6mm Provence Lavender
  • 5754 8mm Fern Green
  • 5754 6mm Provence Lavender
  • 5000 6mm Pacific Opal
  • 5000 6mm Aquamarine
STEP 13
At the back side of the pattern tie a knot with the other thread as shown in the illustration. Secure the leftover thread with 4 backstitches and cut off excess.
STEP 14
Cut turquoise and light green ribbons to 8 cm length and stick double-sided tape on the back of them. Attach the ribbons onto the pattern. Fold the two sides of the card as shown in the illustration.
