UC - Easter/Spring theme ....

.....  Good Morning!  Spring officially starts on Sunday 20th March, and Easter is the following week, so our theme for this month's Uniko Challenge is SPRING/EASTER. I've made a fun Easter card, I like Mr Bunny hoarding his eggs!!:

Stamps: Uniko - Some Bunny, Background Builders Round in Circles, Fontiments Birthday
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Kaleidacolor - Pastel
Dies: Spellbinders - Nested Eggs (S4-264) #1, #2 and #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Wisteria Wonder; Copics; Cuttlebug EF - Kitchen Weave

I used lilac card to make the base. I cut a panel of white card slightly smaller and embossed a check pattern. I created the Easter eggs by stamping the circles on white card using a Kaleidacolor pad - love the variation in colour. I die cut several eggs. Next I stamped the bunny on white card, coloured him with Copics and fussy cut him out. I adhered the three eggs behind the bunny directly to the card. I put some dimensional tape behind the bunny's head, ears and arms and attached him. I finished by adding the smallest egg and sentiment with dimensional gel. On the inside I simply stamped the circles on the white panel and left a large space for my message.
