Easter Greeting

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me from the Card A Day Blog.  This week the theme is Easter and I'm using the bunny and greeting from the February {Grow into Spring} kit.

 
I started by stamping the Bunnie with chocolate ink and cutting him out.  I then cut a 3" circle and used the Loop corner punch to go around the circle to make a pretty mat.  The white circle is cut at 2".  The white cardstock is embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  I used the EK Success 2 Point Flag to punch the flag end only and trimmed down the white cardstock



I used the corner and edge punch on the for the green paper. Tip - the green border is in two pieces and the bottom edge is lined up to match then the stripe paper is layered on top. You can see all the layers from the side.  I stamped the Bunnie again and added him to the inside of the card.


Thanks for stopping by.
