Easter Gift Set

It is my Tuesday post on the Art Impressions blog, today!
Easter is just around the corner, so I've made up a little gift set to celebrate the occassion!  Warning - lots of photos ahead...  One stamp that is definitely a signature image for Art Impressions is "The Fence" (Sku#P1499), and I am using it to make a Front & Back card along with Bunny FB (Sku#K1566), F & B Peeking Rabbit (Sku#K1750), Egg Basket (Sku#G1755) and Got Eggs? (Sku#D4015):
There was a lot of stamping, colouring and fussy cutting for this project - and yes, it did take a little time!  Here's what I started with on my craft table:
I began by colouring and fussy cutting around each piece.  The outer fence is part of the card base, and I glued the second fence to the back side of it.  Then I glued on the die cut grass along the bottom edges.  I added the bunny butts to the outside of the card, and matched their fronts to them on the inside, along with the basket of eggs.  I created a little hillside of gingham paper and glued it to the inside base along with the clouds and sky, then stamped the sentiment, "Got Eggs?":

For the matching treat holder, I cut a 4" x 12" piece of cardstock, scored it at 5 1/4" and 6 3/4", and cut a 2" circle out of one end.  I used a Spellbinders Label die to cut a shape for the top, and a small strip of green cardstock folded over the top.  The bunny was fussy cut and glued over the circle:

I used just the backview image, because I wanted it to look like the bunny was peeking in at the eggs:

I filled a small cello bag with Easter grass and a few chocolate eggs, then sandwiched it between the topper that I stapled on.

Did you see the Mini Front & Back images that we launched here on the blog a few weeks ago?  Well they would all work just perfectly with both the fence and the treat bag idea - and not just for Easter, maybe for a birthday party?  Another occassion?  And be sure to check out the Front & Back section on the Ai website - there are several dozen images to use along with the Fence.
Copic Markers used:
Fence: W1, W3, W5
Bunnies: E51, E53, E55, C1, R20, R22
Basket: E53, E55, E57, Y21, Y23, R81, R83, G40, G43, B01, B00, B000, V20, V22
Happy stamping, & Happy Easter!

Karen, both of your projects are fantastic. Great card with both bunnies peeking through the fence at the basket and that treat bag is awesome.

It is the loveliest card I´ve seen in a while. Great coloring of the bunnies, fence, and all. Thanks for the explanations, too.
