Easter - Featured Designer Challenge by Tanya Miller

Easter Table card

Because we camp every Easter I thought I would make a nice table card as it is easy and light to pack.

Here is what you need;
12 x 12 green cardstock and various other colors for the flowers, egg, bunny and grass
Quickutz dies Lemon Drop DA0235
Spring Blooms DR0059
Easter Bunny DR0056
Baby carriage (optional) REV-0107-S
Grass RS-0024
Easter Basket KS-0410
Easter Egg RS-0933
Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch Garden Gate
Brown inkpad to distress the edges

Score your 12x12 card stock at 2,4,6,8, & 10 inches and fold along the lines.  Punch the front edge with the garden gate punch and decorate with some grass die cuts.  And I have distressed the edge with the inkpad.
Cut out the Pram in an off white color.
Cut it to make it look like a cracked egg.

Cut out your bunny and position him like he has just been hatched (yes I know bunnies do not come from eggs).
Cut out the tulips but not the stems, as they are too thin so hand cut them wider so they stand up and the letters to spell Easter. Stick the letters to the Tulips.
I have cut out an Easter basket for the bunny. Cut some larger eggs and you can emboss or leave them plain and cut out some more grass.

When assembling, place the tulips at the back and the bunny and egg on the next fold and then decorate the rest with grass and eggs.
Place him on your table for Easter for a great Day!
