Hi everyone! I’m here today to share three Easter cards that I created using products from the March kit and add-ons!

I love using a grid design on a scrapbook page, so why not use it on a card as well? I started by placing a cute and colorful vellum bunny from the Vellum and Wood Veneer Bunnies in three of the four quadrants on a rectangular piece of white cardstock and then added the Easter sentiment with the Happy Moments Stamp in the fourth quadrant.
 

 
After adding little puffy heart sticker “tails” to the bunnies and one above the sentiment using the Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, I stitched around the edge of the white cardstock and matted that rectangle on a diagonal striped paper from the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack (which also has a stitched border). I then placed everything on a white card base.
 

 
For my second card, I stamped the smaller bunny from the Happy Moments Stamp in a random pattern on a white card base.
 

 
Then I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) and punched it out using a circle punch, layering that on square of coordinating patterned paper from the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack. I stitched around the edge, matted that on white cardstock and placed it in the center of my card.
 

 
The last card consists of the colorful polka dot 4″ x 6″ tag from the March Kit, which I trimmed and bordered by thin pink strips cut from a paper in the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack and stitched with zigzag seams.
 

 
I used a circle punch to make a shadow box-type home for the yellow vellum bunny from the Vellum and Wood Veneer Bunnies and stamped the sentiment from the Happy Moments Stamp on die-cut pieces from the March Kit.
 

 
Thanks for stopping by today – I hope you’ll use some of the fun March products to make some cards of your own!
