I have a cute Fun-Fold Easter card for you today made with the Rain or Shine Suite of Products.

This is a very simple fun fold card.  The front of the card is just trimmed to half of its normal width and then a matted focal point cut with Stitched Rectangle dies is added.

The Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper includes one design that is a field of daisies.  I used this DSP to cover both the inside of the card and the front flap, and it makes such a pretty background for my Rabbit Friend, Skip.  Does Skip look happy?  He looks like he is hopping and skipping through the flowers across the front of our card, doesn't he?

This Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper (DSP) collection also includes sheets of various images that are sized to coordinate with the Playing in the Rain Dies that come with this bundle.  All I had to do was die cut Skip from the DSP.  Isn't he cute?  He just makes me smile!

I added a small grassy area of color wash on my Basic White cardstock using my Water Painter and some Old Olive ink.  Then I stamped the daisies on the grass and colored the petals with my Mango Melody and Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends.

It was easy to add Skip to the scene with a few dimensionals.

The God's Blessings sentiment is from the Hope and Peace stamp set which has carried over from the July - December Mini Catalog -- so YES, it is still available!  YAY!

The Happy Easter sentiment on the inside of the card is from the retired Welcome Easter stamp set.  But, if you need a Happy Easter stamp, the adorable Easter Bunny stamp set in the current mini catalog has basically the same sentiment.  My Easter Bunny stamp set is on its way to me and is someplace between Utah and here.  In the meantime, this retired stamp worked just fine!  Just like the Easter Bunny "Happy Easter" sentiment, the two words are all on one line, so to make it work on this narrow front flap, I needed to first mask "Easter" and stamp "Happy", and then do the same with "Easter" and stamp it below the "Happy".  It's a simple trick to turn one-line sentiments into two-line sentiments.  Sometimes we need to do that when we don't have enough space for a long single-line sentiment.

This is the first Easter Card I've made this year, so I need to get busy, or I'm going to be really scrambling.  Easter is only a month away!  I can see me using this bundle to make some more Easter Cards, and once my Easter Bunny stamp set arrives, I'll need to get busy!

I hope you liked today's card.  Skip the bunny makes me smile so I hope he made you smile, too!
