Bunny in a box...sort of using Cricut Songbird

Happy Friday--so what a week! So looking forward to a nice slow weekend! Today is my last Easter card for my oldest niece--It's a pop up card! Ribbon, bling, embossing, stamps, and fancy brand--I don't think I could have added anything else!

And a few close ups

Well I have a super cute Easter layout to show on Monday and a few other surprises in store for next week! So make sure you check back cause you will not want to miss out!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hippity Hoppity....using Cricut Easter and Cricut Songbird

Well we are half way through another week--where does the time go!!!! I have three beautiful neices and one ball of energy nephew! So this means that when I get to do projects for my nephew I really enjoy it! So this one is for him.

I saw the background paper (which is from Jillibean Soup) and fell in love--I first thought it was clouds but it is rabbits--so I used it as the sky! Using Cricut Songbird I cut the fence in shadow as well to make it really pop! I must admit that this is another cut I altered--this fence has a bird perched on the middle section and I cut it off and used a corner rounder to make the tops all look alike! I cut the rabbit from Cricut Easter in white and the shadow in pink--then I inked the edges pretty heavy to cover the pink around the edge and allow the ear to look a bit more real. I pop dotted the rabbit so the front was not all flat.

I used the rabbit paper again on the inside and cut the topnote from Cricut Songbird in solids. I used another Michael's 1.00 stamp here--I thought it worked perfect with the card. A little silver embossing really helps pop that sintinment.
Thanks for stopping by today-

Happy Easter using Cricut Easter, Cricut Songbird

Well if you have not noticed, I have jumped into card making head first! I promise After April you will see lots more layout! Between work, preparing for this massive trip, and a few other special projects time is SUPER LIMITED!
In regards to cards, I like a good mix of fancy fold and the simple standard half fold. Today is a fancy fold--this is my first attempt at this type of card and I think it came out perfect for one of my nieces!

The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye and I used Core'dinations for the solids. I left the two middle sections untouched to help balance it out and leave me a place to write a little note.

I am pretty new to stamping as well--used a Michale's $1.00 special holiday stamp for this one and added some pink pearls to really make it girly! Here is a detail

I think she is going to like it!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a Great Monday!
