Instructions:
Step 1:  Fold a 6" x 9" piece of Light Yellow cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2: Tape the Egg stencil to a 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of  white cardstock with removable tape
Step 3: Use 1/4" stencil brushes and the Picasso tool to apply color to the egg design, remove and clean the stencil
Step 4: Place the egg stencil face down (so you can't see the stencil number) on a paper towel and pat the stencil with the Lavender ink pad until the stencil is well coated
Step 5: Place the inked stencil on the platform of a die cut machine, carefully place the stenciled image face down on the stencil, tape in place if desired, add a Rubber Embossing Mat and two cutting mats, run through the  die cut machine to dry emboss the image and transfer the Lavender ink to the background
Step 6: Let the embossed image dry for a minute or two then trim to 1 1/8" x 5 3/8", adhere to a bright yellow mat (1 1/4" x 5 1/2"), then to a pink mat (1 3/8" x 5 5/8")
Step 7:  Cut a 1" x 1" piece of the Graphic45 paper and stamp the Happy Easter from the Painted Wishes set using Memento Tuxedo Black, edge the piece with a black marker, adhere to a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" bright yellow mat
Step 8: Stamp the dotted bracket from the Bible Journal set twice on a piece of white paper, color with Copic markers, cut out, edge with a black marker
Step 9: Cut a 2" x 6"  piece of the Graphic45 paper, edge with the RV11 or R32 marker, adhere to the top edge of the card front
Step 10: Cut a 2 1/2" x 6"  piece of the Tiny Green Stripe paper, edge with the YG03 marker, adhere to the bottom edge of the card front
Step 11: Wrap a piece of the ribbon around the middle of the card and attach with Fabri-Tac
Step 12:  Tie a small bow and adhere to the ribbon using Fabri-Tac
Step 13:  Adhere the Easter Egg Border layer to the bottom area, center the Happy Easter in the top portion, use foam tape to add the brackets around the Happy Easter
