April's 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop- Day TWO

Thank you for joining us on Easter sunday for a little hop!

I made this cute card for Easter today! I hope you like it!

Don't forget to comment along the way to be entered to win the over 20 prizes this weekend, comment on ALL of the blogs. I will be picking some winners from the comments on all of the blogs along the way... not just mine :)

Here is what I started to make last night.... then "Life happened" which means my family changed my plans... but it was a welcome change....
I was making this card then we somehow got to decorating eggs and then my assistant helped me with this card....

This was created by a 4 year old with my assistance....
Family... That's what it's all about

I used the Teresa Collin Sampler Cricut Craft Room Exclusive cartridge to make this card, I welded two of the same image together to make the card then I resized one of them to be the brown base. Then I made sure the "Waffle" print would fit into the brown card layer.
This was how I added the image to the card. There were such thin little pieces that I had to be so careful every time I touched the paper it ripped so I used the transfer paper to transfer my design to the paper.

I ran the design through my 510 Xyron sticker maker to get adhesive in each
and every inch of the design.

Here is the lovely card "Ala Bella"
I also used Spring Cottage for the gate. 2 3/4" for the gate
I used Easter magic for the bunny and the eggs cut at 1" and for the bunny the Teresa Collins Bunny Basket CCR cartridge cut at 2"

This was how I ended my night and my project.... we colored eggs and made Bunny cookies...

Here was the base layer of my images I chalked the edges....
but it was all covered up with glitter by the time my little one finished "helping" me.

Here is the line up....
