My Easter Card!

While I was on Tracey's blog, I saw her Criss Cross cards, so I decided that I would make my Easter Cards like this! I followed the instructions on this SITE! I had to make 9 cards for a swap, basically my cards are all the same, but the rabbits go from one side to the other I alternated the folds of the cards too!!!! This is what I cam up with!!!

MIL kindly donated the beautiful stamp to me. She is moving back to Georgia, and had to downsize! She allowed SIL and myself to go through all her crafting supplies and divide it out between us!!!! I would of rathered she stayed than to have all this lovely stash!!! Just want to wish her all the happiness that I can in her new adventure!!! Love ya June!!!!!

Okay it might look like the mum rabbit is strangling her son, but honestly she is only doing up the top button on his jacket!!! So I thought rabbit, Sunday Best, Church = Easter along with the bright colours!!! I know its a stretch but I wanted to use the stamp, oh BTW I water coloured the image!

I found this lovely little verse on-line, don't remember where, but I thought I would hand write rather than stamp or print it out, for more of a personal touch!

One thing that I did do different is...........I put a card stand on the back!!!!

I done this by using the scrap triangle that was cut from the front of the card and gluing it on the back, now the cards stand up using their own support! I hope Beate doesn't mind!!!

This is the full collection of cards that I made!

Thanks for the mention honey, I love your version of the cards, the little stamp and the handwritten verse are beautiful touches and I love the spring colours you used too xxx
