Suggested card size is 4"x9-1/4" (#10)



Size one of each egg to approx. 1-1/2"x2-1/8"

and place in each 1/4 of the page as shown. Print

twice on Hammermill 100 lb. white coverstock.


Size on rabbit to approx. 3"x 5-1/4" and place on

half the page. Print on Hammermill 100 lb. white

coverstock. Set to side.







Color as desired. I used Copic Markers, list of

colors above.







Cut the page into quarters. Position the

scalloped rectangle die over each of the eggs as

shown and run through the Big Shot.






Select a background paper.... I chose Recollections

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

and Starfire glitter on coffee filter. Dump excess

onto coffee filter and put back in the jar. Let Dry.






Apply Tear-ific tape to the backside of each

of the pieces except the fussy cuts.





Center the Recollections Pink Plaid on the

DCWV Doublesided Pink and adhere. Center the

Blue egg on the Blue square and adhere.

Center the Violet egg on the Violet square and

adhere. Center the Blue and Violet squares on

the plaid from side to side and 1/4" from the

bottom and top of the card front as shown.




Apply 3M Foam Tape to the backside of

the Fussy Cut pieces and adhere to the card

front; align each egg over each egg. Center

the Happy Easter sentiment between each

side and square for some dimension.





Adhere 3 white pearls in upper left hand

corner and again in the lower right hand corner

as shown.







Pull out the printed rabbit and color as desired.

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!

today's escape from the winter blues.
