Spring Bunny with Carrot

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

We had a big snowstorm over the weekend, and it dropped about 6-7" of snow in our area. But today it's mostly melted away. We are on a current warmup and just traces of the snow remain. It's so typical of the weather in our area this time of year. 

Now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I created an Easel card for Easter for one of my great nieces. She is 5 years old and will love this. 

Design Steps:

For those of you that like videos here is a link to one on Splitcoaststampers.

Start out with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock and score at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4". Your card front piece will measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2. I used white cardstock for my base color.
I wanted some designer paper as a base for the bunny image. I found this piece of blue designer paper that has a marble effect and a piece of matching blue cardstock for my card front.

designer paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
blue cardstock layer: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I attached this panel to the bottom flap of the card base using double sided tape. You just secure the bottom panel only.

Next, I cut my bunny image with various colored cardstock.

I stamped my bunny sentiment on white cardstock and then mounted it on the blue that coordinates with the upper part of the card. I am also using this as my ledge for the easel to rest on. I added an additional piece of blue cardstock to make it a bit more secure. Stamp is an older one from Great Impressions Stamps. they aren't in business any longer. 
I attached the bunny image to the designer paper panel with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment panel is attached 1 1/2" from the card bottom with double sided tape.
I decided to add the Easter phrase to the top of the card. I cut it 2x in magenta cardstock and secured to panel with Art Glitter glue. Added a few magenta enamel dots to finish off my card. This card does fold flat so it will fit in a standard A2 envelope.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So, until next time.......God bless.
