More Easter Cards

Busy week and have not had time to post the other Easter cards I made. This card has a card stock base of a lavendar, white is GP, and the bunny print is from Hobby Lobby. Doily is from the dollar store and I used punches for the greeting and lavender circle behind it. Used the Stampin Up Petal Punch for the flowers and the sprigs are made using a M Stewart punch. Added crystals from the stash.

Card on a card stock base from Close To My Heart, white is GP, and the print is Sapna. The "happy easter" printed card stock is from Hobby Lobby and it came in a clearance pack of card stock from Hobby Lobby. I wanted to use the egg shaped die to cut this piece out but with it being a printed card stock it would be too thin. So I cut a piece of this larger then the die is. Using the ATG I ran adhesive all over the back and put that onto a piece of white/GP card stock. Then put the egg shaped die on top of it and cut that out in the Cuttlebug. For the bunny I used a die from Impression Obsession and cut that out of flocked card stock. The flocked card stock would be flimsy so I also cut a bunny out of scrap kraft card stock. Ran a glue pen over the kraft bunny and then put the flocked bunny on top of that. Put the card pieces together and then once the egg was on the floral print I put the bunny on that using pop dots. Wanted to bring the greens of the floral card stock to the bunny so used a M Stewart bow punch and punched out a bow from green checked card stock.

The above photo shows the bunny is raised off the print using pop dots.

Bunnies in the grass -- similar to a Make N Take card we made with Mandy @ Betty's.

The above card is a window card and I used an oval die to cut out the oval and then a larger oval die to cut out the checked 'frame' for the oval. Used the SU Petal Punch for the flowers and again the sprigs punch from M Stewart. Once I had the flowers on the sprigs I spritzed them with Pearl Shimmer Mist for a little sparkle:

Again cut out a flocked bunny and a kraft bunny and put those together using the glue pen. For the bow on this bunny I wanted it to look like it was in the back of the bunny so using scissors I cut a small piece of the pink card stock to look as if it is tied around the bunny neck and then into the bow:

Added a pink crystal to the center of the bow.

This card is on a pink card stock base, white is GP, and the floral print is from Sapna. The printed card stock has a border along one side of the page so I used that border to work on this card. Doily is from the dollar store and I used circle dies for the circles. I used two M Stewart butterfly punches for the butterflies and I used a crimper on one of the butterflies and an embossing folder on another. Added pearls to the butterflies. TFL and YOLO

Hi Candee, Like the Easter cards And I never thought to use crimper or embossing folder for a punched piece. Am playing catch up on postings from April 4th. Visited granddaughter -hit all craft shops in east Texas while she was working. She is now set up with supplies to make cards. Hugs and smiles, Reva

Hi Reva--lucky granddaughter to have all supplies for her card making -- I bet she is thrilled.... Just mailed off all the Easter cards and am afraid between the sale @ Betty's and the Easter cards the craft room is looking like a wind tunnel went dancing through -- so will be cleaning it all week -- but it will be fun as I will be in the craft room. Thanks for your visit and all your kind comments -- Candee P
