You may remember the Christmas tree tent card I made about a year ago, with the slotted tree on one half.
This Easter pop up card is an adaptation of that design, featuring bunnies and flowers.
I pulled out all my papercutting idea files and borrowed a snippet here and a motif there to make this card. The large flowers on the back are "tattered", inspired by Tim Holz. The small flowers on the bunny side may originally be from a Topp book. I don't know for sure--I drew them from a picture, which you can view here among other places. The rabbits are also drawn from a picture. There is a nice selection of paper cutting photos on that site, but be aware it's all in Russian!
How to make the bunnies and flowers pop up card
Download cutting files (PDF, DXF, SVG, Cameo).
Files download for free; pay what you wish for the tutorial and to support this site. Suggested contribution for this project is $1.00.
Attention SVG users! The file has 3 horizontal score lines. Delete them if your machine insists on cuttting all lines. Hand score at the center fold and at the two ends. The score lines that make the zig zag "feet" are approximately .25" up from the top of the zig zag.
Cut the file by machine.
Glue the cut-out into a base card following the instructions from the Christmas tree pop up card tutorial. (Skip the parts that refer to slotting the tree parts together.).
