Mechanical Cards

Its 'Mechanical Cards' week over at *The Craft Barn Blog* this week.  There is even a download of a booklet by Kathy Byrne to help you with all those folds & cuts!  The DT each chose one to do and I chose to make an Invitation card for a child.  Easter is around the corner so what better fun that an Easter Egg Hunt!!!

 The instructions are to use a 12x12 inch piece of paper but, knowing that children love things that are diddy I used a piece of 6x6inch paper.The invitation is all tucked away inside this little envelope.  Aren't those teensy Tando rabbits cute???

Using some shrink plastic, I also made an egg & glued it onto a stirrer stick :D

Enjoy your Easter Weekend and any chocolate that you may get haha!  HUGS xxx

Sorry I'm behind with my visits but I'm here now to catch up! This is such a sweet card with those little bunnies! I just love the backgrounds inside too. That crackle stamp is fab.
