~Put it with the other side up.
~Hold one of the first cut diagonal pieces next to it to help you decide which way to cut it diagonally. Cut.
~Do you want to sponge around the edge? If you do, do it now. (I am out of town and forgot my sponges. I miss them!!!)
~Lay one of each pattern on your card front. Attach the bottom/right side first. Then attach the top/left side. Mine overlapped a little along the diagonal center to get it straight.
~Add a border sticker to the one edge if desired.
~Repeat with the other two diagonal pieces. I put these on a Tranquil card base. See Monday’s post for this card. 3. Stamp the Eastern Beauty Flower on Whisper White card stock with Fresh Fig ink. Stamp the little heart inside each petal with Fresh Fig ink. Cut out with the coordinating Framelit. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. 4. Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White card stock with Tranquil Tide ink. Punch out with the Classic Label Punch. Stamp the circles or other small image with Lemon Lime Twist ink. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back. 5. Cut a Stitched Shapes Circle Framelit from Tranquil Tide card stock. Attach the die cut Flower to it. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back and attach the to the upper left part of the card. Attach your sentiment to the lower right part of the card. I would put a pearl in the center of the flower if I had one. 🙂

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Stamps the Easter sentiment on Whisper White card stock. Cut out with the Stitched Shapes Circle Framelit. 3. Cut four ferns from Cucumber Crush card stock, one Melon Mambo flower, and one Whisper White Flower center. 4. Sponge around the Circle Easter Framelit with Melon Mambo ink. Attach to card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals about 5/8″ from the right card edge. 5. Glue Two ferns around the left side of the circle. I just put a thin line of Tombow down the center. The stems also overlapped slightly. Lay down the third fern and lay it in position. Trim off excess. Glue on. Repeat with the last fern. 6. Put a half Stampin’ Dimensional behind each center flower petal. Remove backings. Put a thin line of Tombow on the thin outside petals and a circle of glue in the center. Lay the flower where you want it and hold down the flower center for a few seconds. Now press down all flower petal parts. You will have to rub your finger around each thin flower petal part. Glue the Flower Center to the flower holding down the center. Fluff up the White outer Flower center parts. You are finished!
This cute Bunny Treat Holder is perfect for Easter or Spring Treat or Small Gift Giving. It is also really quick to make! So get some Thick Whisper White card stock and some circle and oval Framelits or punches and make one for the people you love. SUPPLIES: Marker: Basic Black #1000082 Card Stock: Thick Whisper White
Blushing Bride Big Shot:Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 Adhesive: Tear & Tape
Tombow Glue Other: Pencil or pen Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade #126889
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut and prepare your papers:
~two large circles from Thick Whisper White card stock. I used the largest Circl Stitched Shapes Framelit. Put both circles together on your Paper Trimmer and trim off 1/2″ This will give you a flat bottom.
~Two Thick Whisper White ovals the size you want for your Bunny Ears. I used the second smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Two Blushing Bride ovals just smaller than your Bunny Ears. I used the smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Decide how wide you want your Bunny Treat Holder to be. Mine is 1″ wide. Decide how wide you want the tabs to be. Mine is 3/8″. Double this measurement – 3/4″. So I cut a 1-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ piece to go between the large circles. Score along each 8-1/2″ side at 3/8″ so you have two long tabs. Put the Tear & Tape on the tabs now. Leave the Tape backing on. Fold both Scored Tabs with your Bone Folder. This is your Bunny Width Strip. 2. Prepare & Assemble.
~Choose one of your Circles to be the front. Draw a Bunny Face on it. Don’t worry if it is not perfect. It will give you bunny character and make it even cuter!
~If desired you can add a Bunny Tail to the other circle with a small punched circle or a pom pom.
~Glue a Pink Oval to a Whisper White Oval. Repeat with the next set. Bunny Width Strip
~Find the center of your Bunny Width Strip either by measuring and marking the tabs at 4-1/4″ or by making light fold marks on the tabs.
~Hold the flat part of your Bunny Face circle next to the center of your Bunny Width Strip. Try to make the Bunny Face even on both sides of the center mark. Mark both the tabs where the outside of the Bunny Face is. I drew a straight line on the tabs. DO NOT cut between these lines!!
~Now cut out “V” shapes every 3/8″ to 1/2″ along both tabs leaving the part you marked in the center flat. These “V” shapes will help eliminate bulk and make it easier to attach to your Bunny Face and Back. Assembly
~Now pull off the Tape Backing. Have your Tabs folded up with the Adhesive on the outside.
Attach your Bunny Front and Back to the center of each tab with the part you want showing on the facing outward and the plain sides facing the Bunny Width Strip.
~Decide how far up you want the Bunny Width Strip to go on each side of the Bunny Face and Back.
~ Attach one side of the Tab to both sides of either the Bunny Face or Back up as high as you want. Trim off the excess on both sides. Repeat with the the other Bunny Face or Back.
~Glue the Bunny Ears inside the Bunny Back. I put Tombow Glue on about 1/4″ from the bottom of the Bunny Ear and attached it close to the Bunny Width Strip.
~Fill with Treats or a small gift.
