Easter Chick Fun Frame Card

You need double sided paper to complete the look as well as some ribbon and some Easter Chick embellishments. The finished look forms a frame around the flower in the center.
Card base is 9" x 6" scored and folded at 4.5". I used a solid colored mat that measured 4.25" x 5.75".
Using double sided pattern paper cut a piece to 4" x 4"
- using Martha Stewart scoring board, score on diagonals at 5/8" and 1 3/8" on each side. - NOTE: if using a different scoring board dimensions may vary!
- fold the 1 3/8" side in and then fold back at 5/8"' on all four sides
I used a "Happy Easter" sentiment at the bottom center.
I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder to emboss about 3/4s of the mat which ended about 1/4" above the greeting and add a ribbon across the card where the Swiss Dots end.
Inside mat measurements:
5.5x4" on one side of the pattern paper
4.5x3" on white.
Makes a cute and fun card for any occasion! Enjoy!

Pink Bunny

This little bunny will make any little girls Easter! She is made from two hearts, two large circles, 1 medium circle, and 3 small circles. The ears are upside down leaves all cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I added a pink ribbon to the top. I used Swiss dot embossing folder on the pink in the ears, face and nose.
