CAS Easter Card

Happy Friday, it's Jeanne posting today.  I'm a big clean and simple (CAS) design fan.  Many of my cards are in that style.  When doing a CAS design I love using dies because they come out so crisp and graphic, keeping everything - clean and simple!  My card this week illustrates that.
These little bunnies from Some Bunny Loves You are adorable and highlighted perfectly by the color offset squares.
Out of white cardstock, I made an A2 side fold card base, then embossed a panel 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches and adhered it to the base.  I used this basket weave since I thought it perfect for that "Easter basket" look.
Next I die cut the bunnies from Sahara Sand and three squares each from white, yellow, pink and purple.  I used the third smallest square from the Cross-Stitched squares set.
I used a sponge dauber and Sahara Sand to edge the bunnies.  Then I glued on their little white tails.
For each of the three colored squares, I stacked and glued them, then offset a white square and glued a bunny on top.  Then it was time to glue them to the card front.  It was fairly easy to line them up on this card since the basket weave gave me a natural alignment tool!  A tip when lining up three items - do the top and bottom first then center the one in the middle.
For the sentiment I used a fourth color and die cut the Happy Easter Egg.  I love the playfulness of the font used in this die.
Using paper snips, I cut out the sentiment and adhered it to the front of the card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a fun and creative weekend!

Love it! I completely struggle with CAS. I love the way they look but for the life of me, I can't put one together. I am getting a lot of ideas from your post, so keep'em coming. ~ Hugs, Sherry

Very nice CAS card. I like the way you cut the Happy Easter from the egg -- makes that die very versatile.
