April Showers Bring May Flowers.

Happy Spring! To celebrate the first day of spring - thought that I`d make a quick card!  Plus, the new collection from SVG Cuts is just way too darling, I couldn`t help it but to play with it.  As I`m working on a few projects, these PDFs were staring at me... "Come play with me!"...  Can I really leave these bunnies alone?  I'm sure you won't be able to either :)

So... the collection that I'm talking about is the April Avenue SVG Collection.  Too cute, right? (This is the free gift of the week, by the way, with the purchase of $9.98 or more and coupon: FREEGIFT)  So many cut files to choose from!  I picked the painting bunny, but instead, I made the bunny hold the umbrella, and decided to make the stand up-dimension card from Everyday Cards SVG Kit.

Here it is!


The sentiment is from the all new Bunnies and Blossoms Punkin' Patch Stamp set, and stamped this image on the perfectly-cut-just-right-for-the-sentiment.  How do you get them cut perfectly? Well... there's a SVG set  that's made just perfect for these stamps, so all I needed to do was to cut this out first, and then, stamped the image right on it.  So easy, right? You can get it perfect every single time.  Gotta love that!


What I love about these cards is the dimension that you get out from it.  By being able to adhere elements at the front face of the card and the inside, it really makes the card a lot of fun!  You can even add more dimension by adding foam adhesives as well.




If you are interested in making this, I've written out the sizes that I cut these elements for ya!

Label - mid2.svg and mid3.svg... I broke apart the card_base.svg and deleted the inside frame and replaced with this

I used Echo Park Springtime collection for the patterned papers.

Anyway, hope you like! Oh, and go check out their other spring collections, too... if these bunnies are not perfectly your taste, there's cuter ones, and there's more elegant ones! All in one place - Mary does it all!

Happy Spring!
