Small Easter Bunny Card
- Cut a piece of lilac card that measures 8.5 x 15 cm or 3 ¼” x 5 7/8”.
- Cut out the “egg” corners from the card elements sheet and a piece of background sheet measuring 7 x 7.7 cm or 3” x 2 3/4 “.
- Attach the silver background sheet to the lilac card with double-sided tape.
- Attach the corners using a few 3-D foam tabs.
- Colour the negative of one of the Easter eggs in purple and use the transfer sheet to transfer to the silver background.
- Press out the rabbit and attach to the card using a few 3-D foam tabs.

Happy Easter Bunny Card
- Fold over the front of the ivory square card and use double sided tape to secure.
- Cut a square from the lilac card stock sheet to fit the inside of the card and attach using double-sided tape.
- Colour 4 sticker lines using the Dufex green marker from package # 246017. I used lines from sticker sheet #1082.
- Make a frame using the green sticker lines around the inner square (I followed the embossed lines) and around the outer card so that it appears continuous with the inside of the card.
- Cut out the bunny design from the Dufex Card Elements sheet. I used a ruler and hobby knife.
- Cut out a small square slightly larger than the bunny design from a coordinating colour. I used a light green colour.
- Attach the coordinating square to the card so that it looks like a diamond shape with double-sided tape.
- Attach the bunny square to the green square with 3-D foam tabs.
- Colour a “Happy Easter” sticker using the same green coloured marker and attach to the card as desired.
- Decorate using the purple paper flowers as desired. I pierced a hole through both layers and attached the flowers using multi-coloured brads from Memory Makers.

Follow the instructions for the bunny “Happy Easter” card above using yellow card stock for the background and colour the sticker lines with a Dufex purple marker.
3-D Yellow Ducks Easter Card

- Cut an oval around the acetate and sticker negatives.
- Place a few small pieces of 3-D foam tabs to the back of the acetate and sticker sheet.
- Attach directly over the outline sticker on the rectangle card. This will create a unique 3-D sticker effect.

- Repeat step #2 for layers 3 through 5.
- You may wish to curl each layer with the back of scissors before attaching the foam tabs so that the layers look more realistic.
- Press out the strip with the rabbits and eggs and attach to the lilac card.
