Instructions:

  1. For the card: Cut 12"x8½" Pretty Little Posies teal and red flower paper and fold 3" up on a 12" side, making it 12"x5½". Turn horizontally and, while still folded, score at 3", 6", and 9" from the left end. Accordion-fold on the scores beginning with a valley fold on the left. Keep all the pockets on the inside. Cut two 4"x6¾" tan cardstocks and round the corners with the Corner Chomper ½” setting.
  2. Glue the outside of the back pocket section to one of the cut tan cardstock, ¼" from the bottom, centered side to side. Repeat with the second cut tan cardstock, sandwiching the pocket section between both cardstocks. Open the pocket out flat and place Ultra Clear Tape on the 3" pocket sections at each score line and one on each end. Re-fold the pocket, pressing the tape in place. Close the card.
  3. For the front: Cut 3¾"x6½" Pretty Little Posies teal and red flower paper and round the corners on each with the Corner Chomper ½” setting. Cut 3¾"x3" Pretty Little Posies orange patterned paper and mat the long edges on tan cardstock with 1/16" borders. Glue centered onto the Pretty Little Posies teal and red flower paper. Glue 24" Pretty Posies blue and green check ribbon across the center border, leaving a 7" tail extending beyond the right edge.
  4. Glue Pretty Posies “Fresh Picked Fun” Embellies™ 1/8” from the left and 2 3/8” from the top. Insert a pearl brad into the tag and secure. Place Cute Easter Chick’s Dazzles™ onto Pretty Little Posies papers as shown and trim. Insert Pretty Posies Embellies™ brads and place the Dazzles™ as shown.
  5. For the inside: Trim a 12"x⅜" Pretty Little Posies off-white patterned paper and cut into four 3" lengths. Glue to the pockets’ upper edges, allowing 1/32" of space at the folds. Glue Pretty Posies Embellies™ tag 1/4” from the left side on the first pocket. Insert a pearl brad into the tag and secure. Place egg border Dazzles™ onto Pretty Little Posies red, flower print and blue papers and trim next to the Dazzles™ edge. Foam tape to the tag.
  6. For the second pocket, place a flower and an egg from the Cute Easter Chick’s Dazzles™ onto Pretty Little Posies papers as shown, trim and glue as shown.
  7. For the fourth pocket place Cute Easter Chick’s Dazzles™ onto Pretty Little Posies papers as shown and trim. Glue to the bottom right corner. Place “Peep, Peep!” in the bottom left corner.
  8. For the tags: Cut 2⅜"x4" tan cardstock. Place the “Have an Egg-cellent Easter”. Round the top corners with the Corner Chomper ½” setting. Attach a butterfly from Pretty Little Posies paper using a floral Embellies™ brad. Add a 6" Pretty Posies blue and green check ribbon to the tag, then tuck it in the second pocket.
