Easter 3D cards with Doodlebug Designs Paper

Easter is right upon us and I've forgotten to post the adorable cards I made early last month.  These cute cards each deserve their own post but I don't want to delay getting them up on my blog any longer. 

I have been teaching my Seasonal Sampler workshop at Lila's Scrapbooking & More, my local scrapbook store here in Everett.  With tons of Close to My Heart products in my stash and new product coming every few months, I'm hardly tempted.  But I'm a sucker for cute chicks, lambs and bunnies.  To compromise, I created 3 cards for Lila to showcase in her store during the Northwest Paper Chase which ended last weekend.  

The paper, including the cardstock is from Doodlebug Design.  It's the Easter Parade design.  As of this afternoon, Lila still had a few more sticker sheets and a bit more of paper in stock.    

These cards were so easy to make.  Lots of vibrant paper, a little bit of cutting and no fussy cutting! No stamping and only 1 Cricut cut.  My main tool was the paper trimmer! 

Here's the first card in a box I created.  

When folded, it's 5.x5" square.  You can make these cards any size.  
As with my samplers, I used corn starch on the back of the stickers to make them a simple die-cut.  

Here's a top view. You can tell that this box will fold flat.  

Box Card #2 featured 2 lambs and the birds.  I inked the edges of all of my cardstock pieces with Desert Sand CTMH Exclusive Inks.  

My favorite is the bendi or bendy card.  

They're really quite simple and don't require any more paper than a single fold card.  
My card is 5.5" square.  They can be any size you want.  Start with the envelope you want to use and scale it down from there.   
Instead of cutting a slot for each "arm" of the card to slide into, I used my embellishments and 3D Foam Tape to hold the arm.  
You can see the chicks are doing the "work."  This one is even bent a little.  

The word "Easter" was part of the stickers.  I used the old Cricut Cartridge Cuttin' Up to cut the word "Hoppy."  

I'm working on more bendi cards this week, with the new Blossom paper that is new on my website as of today!  

Happy Easter!
