Easter Card 4: Bunny in a Basket



Recipe:
A2 card
Pink mat @ 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Printed mat @ 4" x 5.25"
Purple mat @ 5" from Elegant Edges (button 5)
Bunny in a Basket & all parts @ 4" from Baby Steps (button 41)

A very special thank you to Glora at Glora's Crafts for helping me figure out this cut.

I contacted Glora and asked her about, what appeared to me to be, 2 missing egg cuts. She agreed and said that she had recut her base cut for one of the eggs and hand traced the other one. Me? .... well I am a little lazy and I usually mass produce my cards to send to family. So, I went to my handy-dandy Gypsy and sized the "green" egg cut to fit (for the yellow and plaid egg).

Thanks for looking,
Melissa
