Woodware: Hopping Along for Easter

This year seems to just be hopping along. Already we are thinking about Easter, and spring flowers, bunnies, and eggs. The Woodware team have been challenged this week to create an "Easter Delight". Mine is something fun that I made for the Dreamweaver team a couple years of ago, and is still one of my faves.

The base is double-sided yellow/orange cardstock, with the top flap only being 3 inches in order to reveal the inside panel. Aqua cardstock was machine embossed with the Dreamweaver Stripes/Plaid stencil, and paste-embossed with the Hoppy Easter sentiment and the small bunny in Regular White Paste. The top flap has a fun patterned paper panel, and a trim of green pompom fringe.

Now, the focal point. I used the Dreamweaver Open Egg stencil as a template to cut the egg shape. I "air-brushed" it using markers and one of those kid's air brush gadgets. Then I paste-embossed in white the Tall Daffodils and, when dry, colored them, as well as the bunny's ears, and inside sentiment, with the markers as well. The egg was adhered to a piece of larger white cardstock, and scallop-edged scissors used to create the pretty edge. I adhered the egg to the flap of the card with dimensional squares.

Now that I've left you dreaming of spring in the middle of winter, I'd like to remind you to visit the Woodware blog each day this week for more Easter Delights!
