"Bunny Love" Diorama Details

Just to give some further clarification/instruction for the card below... I snapped a picture that I thought would help you better understand this card's construction. This is a view of the base of the card; on it's back. Hopefully this picture will help you get a feel of the simple construction of this card.


As I was snapping away I though I'd share this picture, and a tip...

No... this isn't the ugliest card ever made... it's a template! I often use scraps to create basic construction templates for my work. After making this particular template I realized I needed to adjust the placement of the egg on the card, and score the sides differently. It would have been such a shame to waste my precious Celery Cardstock figuring out all those details!

These pieces of card stock were straight from my wastepaper basket. I assemble some parts of my templates with re-positionable adhesive so I can easily take them apart for measuring or tracing. I save all my templates in a box; so I can refer to them later; keeping my precious card creations safe and handy to tote to workshops!
