Easter and Flower Soft just go together

Today marks another blog hop with the Flower Soft team and our fun focus is the Easter toppers.  Cute stuff.  Be sure to visit all of the team members blogs.  One lucky blog hopper who comments on all the blogs will win a $50 Flower Soft gift certificate so comment on every post along the way!
The blog hop will remain open until Tuesday March 22nd. The winner will be announced on the Flower Soft blog on March 23rd.
You can start at the Flower Soft blog.
I created this card around the Card Positioning Systems blog sketch for this week.  Flower Soft is the sponsor.  The cute little bunnies are from a Easter Fun 3-D Cut Out set by Flower Soft. 

These toppers come all colored so using them is so fast and easy. They also come with extra parts so that you can layer different parts of the topper.  I used a second layer of the basket, this is the 3-D part of my card.  Do you see how cute the Flower Soft is that I added to the bunnies ears and to the bow? Remember that the Aleene's Tacky Glue is the best and fastest way to add the Flower soft to a project.  The corners are punched with a Kreaxions 4-in-1- 922 Fountain punch
I want to share a second card using a topper from the same Easter Fun 3-D Cut Out set.  This one uses the Unscripted sketch for this week plus some really neat NEW Core Impressions Core'dinations cardstock. Do you love that embossed pattern?

Again, these 3-D Cut Out sets come with additional images to cut out so you can make your images dimensional.  I cut out the extra little bunny with the yellow suit and I curved it with my fingers.  I then added two layers of foam tape to the middle of this piece. Now it stands up wonderfully and comes alive with the 3-D look.  See the cute little bits of Flower Soft added to it too?
From here, hop on over to Deb Felt's blog for more goodness.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
