I have been working on some Easter cards to add to my contribution to the Cards For Soldiers package for this month. If you don’t know about this project, it’s awesome. A group of people send cards they’ve made to one location and then that person ships all of the cards received to a military base. The cards can then be used by the soldiers to send home to their loved ones.
This project is near and dear to my heart, so I have committed to send in a batch this year. The Elmo and Cookie Monster cards and Mother’s Day card that I showed earlier on the blog are for that project. I also use any “test cuts” that I make and make up a quick card and those go in the package as well.
Anyway…this Easter card is for the Cards For Soldiers package too. I used Create A Critter for the bunny. I set everything up in the Gypsy so that I knew what my end result was going to be. Then I put each layer on a different page so that I could cut full pages of each color. That makes these projects go quickly…I was able to cut 6 bunnies pretty quickly.
The “Happy Easter” sentiment is letters welded together in the Gypsy and then placed in a rectangle. The great thing about doing this is you can use the letters, or you can use the box. Both ways turned out really cute.
I ran the strips of paper through the Cuttlebug and used a Easter egg ribbon that I had picked up at Hobby Lobby. The card blanks were just made by cutting good old cardstock for the A2 size!
If you don’t have Create A Critter it really is a great cartridge. It is probably one of the ones I use the most. The cuts are cute and easy to make.
