Happy Easter Everyone!

Happy Easter all you lovely people! 

This year, it almost passed me by had it not been for the fact that as a blogger and YouTuber, you have to keep a little ahead of the game and I realised that my lead in time to Easter projects and videos were little more than 2 weeks ahead which all had to be completed before my trip to Amsterdam to meet with my Stampin' Up! sisters for OnStage Live! 

I'm revisiting this "card in a box" technique which I adapted to get 2 cards out of an A4 sheet which you can see here.  I'd made square ones before, and was experimenting with a different shape and made a rectangular one way back in April 2014!  Back then, there was no HD, and I was a fledgling YouTuber, and it was all done with a taped cassette!  So much has changed in the space of 3 years!

Viewed from the front, I added a basket of daffodils and a bunny and some easter eggs.

View from the top, I adhered the front layer of grass (needed 2 die cuts for the front, and another 2 for the "bridge").  The one in front was adhered 1/2" lower than the back one.  The bunnies were staggered and working in threes, as it's more aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

I stamped and punched the greeting from the Little Cuties stamp set using a 1" circle punch. The Calypso Coral circle was punched out with a 1 1/4" circle punch.

The card folds flat for mailing in a normal standard C6 envelope.

On the back, I incorporated a Whisper White panel for writing on.

Both the Basket Bunch Bundle and Little Cuties are retiring, so if you love these sets, don't delay as availability is only while stocks last!  The best way to get your hands on them is to order on line - don't forget to use the Hostess Code for April.


and there'll also be a little "thank you" from me provided you allow me to contact you and I have a record of your snail mail address.

Have a lovely weekend and Easter break!  Back soon with a short video showcasing my swaps!
