My girls love cupcakes - they prefer homemade but when a busy mama has to scimp on time then delicious store bought ones have to do - these are vanilla bean flavored from Kimberley's Bakeshoppe (seriously sweet vanilla creme yumminess) and available right from my grocer here in Colorado. Even though they don't go on Easter Egg hunts anymore we do still like to make Easter Brunch special with decorations, goodies and of course a little bag filled with easter eggs - oh and don't think this is just for the girls - Hubby buys into the cuteness too!
Here's What Will You Need?
I used two sets for this one
Fancy Eggs and Hippity Hoppin'
Garden Fence Die Set and Journey Squares
Create and Bloom Prints
....and the Basics to Make it Yourself
White Cardstock. Two shades of green cardstock. Ink for stamping. Markers for coloring. twine. adhesive
1. Color in the cute bunnies with your favorite markers
2. Die cut a front panel using the Journey Squares dies
3. Mat the front panel onto larger white square cardstock
4. Fold white cardstock to form a card base
5. Adhere patterned paper to the front of the card base
6. Stamp egg shapes onto white cardstock. I stamped a total of 6 eggs (3 for the card and 3 for the cupcake topper)
7. Line up two strips of green cardstock. Use the Fringe shears to cut a short border to resemple grass
8. Die-cut two picket fence strips and adhere to grass trips.
9. Secure two ends of strips with adhesive to form cupcake holder.
10. Fussy cut easter eggs. Adhere a grouping of 3 together and secure to a toothpick for your cupcake topper.
11. Wrap twine around the front panel of the card and secure the remainder 3 eggs in a cluster at the base of the bow.
12 Stamp the sentiment and fussy cut in a banner shape. Secure the sentiment and "yay" sticker to the front of the card.
