The side orders are really quite a cute little set to use. With these cards I used the hello Spring and I wanted to create something sweet and simple so you could easily

reproduce many of these for easter if you needed to. To keep it so simple I decided to make two cards

I haven’t really had a chance to use pattern paper in a while as I’ve been obssessed with distress inks and Alcohol inks so this was a nice change.

These cards used a lot of products from my stash that I havent used in a while – the pattern paper is an only Eco Park easter paper so I linked it to something for the season.

I created the card bases from heavey wieght black card stock that  messure 4¼ x 4¼

I started picking through my papers to see what I liked, I thought these  two patterns were cute as it really went along with the side order perfectly.

I trimmed down the butterfly paper to 4x4  and 3¾ x 3¾ for the first card( Hoppy eastyer card)  

I also trimmed down another piece of black cardstock for a second layer which messured 3¾ x 3¾  I adheared the butterfly paper down flat to the card base and then the second layer of pattern paper to the second piece of black cardstock, then foamed taped it up.  

I die cut numerous bunnies from the side order die from both the pattern paper scraps and glitter cardstock from my stash I played around with the arrangement till I decided what I liked.  I foam taped the bunnies up and added the bows to them. 

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from a Lawn fawn set using Hero arts pink embossing powder and die cut using a lawn fawn banner die. I added it also with foam tape and for finishing touch found a little enamel carrot from a doodlebug set

For the second card I kept it really simple allowing the bunny and the pattern paper to be the focal point. I managed to save parts of the paper where you could really see the Easter sentiment. 

The card base was again 4¼ x4¼  with the first pattern paper layer being 3 7/8 x 3 7/8. I adheared the pattern paper to the base

I cut down another layer of black cardstock too 3 ¾  x 2 3/8  and pattern paper to 2 ¼ x 3 ¾  I adheared these together and popped it up with foam tape

I die cut a scallop square from pink cardsdtock and black, I embossed the pink layer with the little embossing folder from the side order set.

I die cut the inside of the scallop square with a smaller square die so I would be left with a frame. I popped up the frame on to the pink layer and added that to the base.  

All i had to do now was add the bunny and bow and this card was complete.

I went back and added some glitter around the frame for an extra something.


 I really liked how these turned out and will probably make some more as they were very quick to do. 

Thank you so much for hoping along and make sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a side order of your own.
