(SNAIL Adhesive used throughout unless otherwise indicated)

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/5" card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline.

2. Use Big Shot and Embossing Folder to emboss 5-1/4" x 4" card stock.  Wrap ribbon from front to back and adhere to card stock; adhere card stock to front of card.

3. Use Big Shot and Framelits to cut two ovals -- one the second to largest; one the third to largest in set.  Use Paper Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, and Paper Piercing Template to poke holes near edge of larger oval.

4. Use Stampin' Write Markers to paint bunnies and sentiment; "huff" on stamp to remoisten ink, and stamp image on smaller oval.  Stamp the two bunnies to the right on a Post-It Note.  Cut out the images and place them over the corresponding stamped images on oval card stock.  Use Lucky Limeade Stampin' Pad to stamp leaves over bunnies.  Remove Post-It Note bunnies and leaves will appear to be behind the bunnies.  (Neat trick, huh?!  This technique is called "masking.")

5.  Adhere smaller oval to larger oval; use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere ovals to front of card.  Make a small bow and adhere to front of card with a Glue Dot behind knot.

6. Adhere Pearls to centers of each leaf group.  Optional: Color Pearls with Regal Rose Stampin' Write Marker.

Happy Easter!!!!
