Pink Plaid. Cut to 3-3/4"x 9". I then went through my scrap pile and chose colors that coordinated with the plaid paper. Cut the DCWV Double Sided cardstock in
pink to 4"x9-1/4". Applied the Heartfelt Cut Mat Create 2A die on each of the scraps selected and run through the Big Shot as shown.
Fussy cut the second set of eggs as shown.
Using the Happy Easter Die, trace on the
backside of the DCWV Doublesided Cardstock
to create a shadow. Then fussy cut.
On a piece of Hammermill 100 lb. white
apply the Happy Easter Die and run through
the Big Shot.
Using Starfire Glitter and Dimensional glue
I applied to the fussy cut eggs and placed in the
coffee filter. Applied glue to the Happy Easter

onto coffee filter and put back in the jar. Let Dry.
Apply Tear-ific tape to the backside of each

I chose Copic Markers, list of colors above. Then
Fussy cut your rabbit image and set to side .
Select a sentiment, find the center of a 8-1/2"x
11" portrait sheet. I used Hippity Hoppity and tilted
about 1/2" from the top of the sheet and about 1/2"
from the center line (which will be your fold). I did
not want the bottom line to show so I drew a white
box tilted to cover. Placed a second sentiment with the bottom line at 6-1/2" from the top of the sheet. Again I drew a white box to cover the hippity hoppity part. (Do not exceed 3" on bottom line and place about 3/8" from the centerline.) Print on Hammermill 100 lb. White cover stock. Score and fold on the center line with the sentiment inside... Cut to 4"x 9-1/4" to make your card base. (Be sure your sentiment is still 1/2" from top and second line 6-1/2" from top)
Using the piece I trimmed off the bottom I cut to
1" strip I folded at 1", 2-1/2" & 3-1/4" and cut at 4".
Using a craft knife I cut around the bunny's
arms and slid the yellow egg under them.
Apply the Paws-itivity Pawsome grasses die to
some green scraps from my stash and ran
through the Big Shot. (Can be different shades.)
Adhere the 1" tab of the 1" strip 4" from the top of the left hand flap and 3/4" from the fold. Adhere the 3/4" tab of the strip 4" from the top of the right hand flap 1-1/2" from the fold. Adhere 2" of grass on the bottom of the strip on the left Flap as shown. Adhere on strip of grass just below the strip centered between the fold and edge as shown. Adhere the rabbit to the strip and about 1-1/2" of grass at the rabbit's foot as shown.
Adhere the card front to the card base!
Wasn't That FUN? HAPPY EASTER!
