Cute and Fun Easter Cards!

Check out these cute Easter cards we made in our card class in March.
The first one is a Side Step Card:
This card was fun! It's one of those cards that really looks harder then it really is. This idea came from Splitcoast Stampers. Click here to view the directions. I then decorated using the Close to my Heart Lucy Paper Packet and the My Peeps stamp set.

The 2nd card was an Idea I saw on Pinterest by Crystal. This was so easy using the Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cricut cartridge.

This cute little Easter basket was given to those that finished there scrabooking pages from the month before. I will post directions and a cut file shortly.

Hope you all have a Happy Easter!
