Easter Bib Overalls
Spring is that time when you go shopping to get new clothes for your kids. Shedding off all those sweat shirts and drabby colors. Time for pastel colors, baby chicks and bunnies, spring flowers, for bare skin, sunburns and mosquito bites. So to me my bib card says that spring is coming! What little boy wouldn't love this for his own Easter card or Birthday card? Or make it it pink or lavender or yellows for that special little girl!

- Spring dress
What would be cuter than a spring dress card for your young daughter or granddaughter for Easter? If she's anything like my Anna she loves clothes and specially dresses that she can spin in. She was really excited when she saw this card.
To make this card you will need the following supplies
1 piece of whisper white card stock cut at 4 1/4x 11 inches scored at 5 1/2.
I piece of designer paper 4 1/4x 5 1/2.
1 piece of scrap paper for a coordinating pockets and collar and the insides of the bunny's ears.
Decorative border punches or narrow lace
Download pattern for the dress and collar. Trace and cut out everything but the neck, if you wait to cut out all neck edges together they will line up perfectly. Use the border punch on the bottom of the sleeves and bottom of the skirt. If using lace, glue lace so it's above the the bottom of the dress edge and sleeve edge. Glue the dress to the card stock making sure the edges of the dresses line up. Stamp some bunny loves you on the collar using rose red ink and center the collar over the dress (I used dimensionals) NOW using a 1 1/2” punch line it up so the top edge of the card is in the center of the punch and is in the middle of the collar and punch all layers together. I trimmed the bottom of the dress and the sleeves so they were just below the decorative edge.
Place bunnies in the pockets and glue and using dimensionals place bunnies and pockets on the dress.
