How to make this colouring plate?

Here’s information about the embroidery file:

Borduur een kleurplaat als paasversiering

Hoop the stabilizer in the Maxi hoop.

You will embroider 4 lines in the first embroidery object (take the colour for the egg), they show you the sizes for the sheet of paper for the files in  EXP en PES. The JEF file only has sidelines and the HUS file doesn’t have these positioning lines, because the hoop is a little smaller.

After these positioning lines, you will embroider the egg with the intersecting lines and the overall outline.

Take a different thread colour for the decorations in the corners.
