Birds Cards blog and collecting her beautiful svg cutting files for just about as long as I've been crafting with electronic cutters! I especially love her very intricate designs, many of which she has generously shared over the years on her blog. For this wedding card, I chose to use her Retro Rose Heart Card cutting file, which Bird originally designed to be a Valentines Day Card.

Doodles First on Etsy and used Make the Cut design program to render the clipart into a cutting file.
I added a pocket on the back of the card so I could slip in a gift card and attached my sentiment panel to it. These Bridge Fold cards are so simple to put together and are the perfect choice when you want to create a special card but don't have a lot of time.

Bunny Feet Box cutting file from My Scrap Chick. Aren't those bunny feet with the carrot foot pads just too, too cute? The adorable floppy eared bunny head and front paws are the Lucky Bunny cutting file from Cuddly Cute Designs.
Although I keep telling myself that I should keep my cards to our granddaughter as simple as possible, I just couldn't resist making this pop up basket card for her first Easter card. I first saw this super neat pop up card, called the Hexagonal Base Pop Up Card created by Bronwyn Eastley on her blog addINKtive Designs. Bronwyn's card is created using Stampin' Up's Window Box Thinlits die, and is absolutely stunning! She also posted a link to a video tutorial by Mitosu Crafts which shows how to convert the hexagonal box into a pop up card. While watching the video, I thought it might be fun to convert the hexagonal box into a little Easter basket by adding a handle.
Here are a couple views from the top which show how the bunny, grass, and basket handle were attached to struts inside the box.
I added our sentiments underneath...
...and here's the card folded flat, ready to be slipped into an envelope!
Totally enjoyed putting this fun new pop up card together, and am so impressed with Mitosu Crafts for coming up with this. Really looking forward to playing with this new card style and trying different versions of this!
