Happy Easter!

I'd received a Christmas card from my upline, Linda MacPherson, using this template years ago and decided that I'd give it a try.  It's a very simple template.  I cut a piece of dsp at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  Make a  5" cut on the 2" in from right hand side of the cs, 1 1/4" inches from the bottom and ending 2 1/4" from the top.  The folds from the left hand side will be at 1 1/4", 2 1/4", 3 1/4" 4 1/4" and 6 1/2".  The rest is up to you!

I used the cloud pattern from the Sunshine & Sprinkles dsp.  I made the grass by running strips of Lucky Limeade in the Perfect Polka Dot folder through the Big Shot, then I "snipped" the edge of grass with my scissors. I watercolored the bunnies and punched out the flowers with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack.

Henry Says!

I love this stamp set from SU!'s Occasions mini --  there are so many things that you can do with it!  I stamped Henry on a design from the More Amore dsp, which included a sentiment already printed on the sheet.  Behind Henry is a doilie heart cut from the sheet of laser cuts in More Amore.  The heart was cut out using the small heart punch from red Glimmer paper.

All products used are SU!, unless otherwise noted.
