Easter Card

Here is an Easter card I made tonight.


This is an 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card.  The cardstock used for the card base, Happy Easter, the base behind Happy Easter and both greens for the grass is The Paper Company pastel cardstock.  The patterned cardstock is from the DCWV Blossoms & Butterflies stack. The cardstock for the bunny, flowers and dragonfly is Bazzill.

I used the Easter 2010 Solutions Cricut cartridge to cut Happy Easter (title in pink and shadow in lavendar) at 2.5" high.  I used the Kate's ABCs Cricut cartridge to cut the bunny, grass, flowers and dragonfly at 4.5" high.  I used my Gypsy to arrange the cuts on a 12 x 12 mat, and here is the screen shot:




Now here is a picture of the mat with all the cardstock placed on it:



Here is a picture of all the cuts:




Here is a picture of the cuts assembled:



Sorry I don't have a picture of the card base before adding the cuts, but I forgot to take a picture of it before assembly.

  9. Thank you all! Since I don't have a video camera at the time, I thought taking pictures and showing the steps might help.
