Bunny and Easter Eggs Punch Art Trifold Card

Instructions for the 3D bunny figurine (made from a plastic Easter egg!)
are posted on my blog here:

I used several punches from Stampin' Up! to make this card.
Almost all of the other supplies (many of which are now retired)
were from Stampin' Up! as well.

Extra Large Oval for body -1
Small Oval for ears - 2
Modern Label for paws - 2
1/8" Circle punch for eyes - 2
3/4" x 15/16" Oval punch for eggs
Lace Ribbon Border punch for daffodils (I reused the tiny pieces that fell out when I made the repurposed jar= flower vase project)
hand cut a teeny tiny piece of pink for the bunny's nose

Whisper White card base is 12" x 5 1/4"; score along the 12" side at 4" and 8". 

Sponge Bashful Blue ink over a cloud stencil ( I made my own, freehand cut from a piece of heavyweight drafting vellum) to create the sky.

Tear green card stock to create the hills. When you glue them down, be sure to leave a little bit of the top edges unglued so you can slide the eggs behind them. The green I used was textured with a white core. 

Punch various colors of card stock to create the eggs. I used retired colors from Stampin' Up! Barely Banana, Pretty In Pink, Mauve Mist, Bliss Blue, Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace. Stamp E A S T E R  (I used the All Around Alphabet set, Stampin' Up!).  Let dry well then add glitter ( I used an unknown glitter, should have used Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin' Up!). 

Stamp "Happy" from the Happy Everything stamp set, Stampin' Up! I used Lovely Lilac ink on Barely Banana card stock, added a little bit of clear drying liquid glue sprinkled with glitter around the edges.

Assemble the bunny, add details with a marker, sponged inks, white gel pen . 

A Daffodil Delight marker (Stampin' Up!) adds a touch of color to the centers of the teeny tiny flowers. Carefully glue them to the green card stock. 

April 5th   EDITED TO ADD:  I received an invite to enter this card in the first challenge (2TC1) at a new blog, Twisted Tuesday Challenges. I've not done a challenge on a blog before ! I think I have all the steps figured out, keeping fingers crossed that this edit and the links I submit work...................

Challenge details:
It's Spring and the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the clouds are coming! To get the beauty of Spring a little rain must fall. So our challenge to you this week is make a creation with a cloud or two.
The cloud(s) CANNOT be stamped.

Be sure to check out the fabulous design team creations as well as the challenge submissions then submit your work at the recently launched blog, Twisted Tuesday Challenges.

Thanks for looking =)
