Easter Bunny Card

I made three of these cards - two are for our Compassion International girls and the other is for my niece.

I am also sending our Compassion girls some sticker books - one is Easter related and the other is a collection of farm animals.  I'm also enclosing a letter to them with an explanation of how Easter falls during the Spring here and that bunnies and eggs have come to symbolize the new birth of Spring.  Then I am going to tie that in with our new birth through Jesus' suffering at Easter.  I've really struggled with how to explain these concepts but hopefully this will dispel some of what I am sure will be some confusion on their parts.  I first thought about creating cards for them with crosses on them but I just couldn't resist this adorable bunny.  I have to justify my Cricut cartridge purchases somehow!

Cricut Create a Critter 2 - Bunny cut at 3.5" out of Core'dinations card stock and mounted on an Action Wobble
Pattern Paper - DCWV Year Round Stack
Solid Cardstock - Core'dinations
Punch - Fiskars Daisy Punch
Ribbon - American Crafts Amy Tangerine Collection
Ink - Momento Dew Drop Bamboo Leaves
Sentiment Stamp - Hobby Lobby Easter Collection
Adhesives - ATG, Zig 2 Way, and glue dots

This is a standard A2 sized card and I cut each layer 1/4" smaller than the one underneath.  For the piece that I punched and threaded ribbon through, I cut that one at 3.5" x 3".
