Easter Card

I stepped 'out of my box' and made a square card, gasp! 

I found a 10 pack of 5x5 cards and envies at Joann's a while back, and I just picked up Basic Grey's Kioshi 6x6 pad.  Then I saw this card and was totally inspired ;)


I used my Cricut and the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge to cut the tree, which I then embossed in my Cuttlebug machine.  Also, a various bunch of circle punches for the 'leaves', and then the bunny is heat embossed (another one of my $1 clear stamp sets!) with white powder and a KaiserCraft pink pearl eye..  I used my Tim Holtz inks on the edges with the foam aplicators: Stormy Sky on the blue background, Bundled Sage on the circles, Peeled Paint on the 'grass' and Vintage Photo on the tree.  I used his edge distresser on all the edges too, love that tool.  Something about Basic Grey papers just call out for edge distressing to me!  And last but not least, I used my Martha Stewart Loopy border punch for the grass.
