March 7th means the Pit Crew Too from Avocado Arts is sharing our creations with this month's set, Spring Medley!! And we have a new dt member, someone you all know and love - Ms. Tenia Nelson!! Give her a big welcome, we're thrilled to have her join our little group!
This month's set is full of fun, Springy images, flowers, butterflies, lady bugs and PEEPS!! Yup, they are trendy, they are in and they are here! Now as I looked at the set I thought wouldn't a peeps card be super cute?! Well yes, yet it would! And since Avocado Arts has the coordinating Digital Cut file available it was super easy to make!
To start, I opened the file in my Silhouette Studio software. I deleted all the images except the small, solid peep. I then made it larger, basically just pulling at the corner until the bunny was just about 5.5" tall. Then I positioned the bunny at the bottom of the page and using a really cool feature on the Duplicate menu, I clicked on Mirror Image Above. All that I had to do now was move the top bunny down just a bit so that the ears were overlapped enough to make a folding area. With both bunnies selected I clicked on Weld (which is on the very bottom left area) and viola! Peeps card complete!

Although I thought it was quite cute left plain (more like a real peep, you know?), I found that the leaf images in the Spring Medley set were the perfect size to fill in the ears - fun!! I simply used the Digital Cut file and then stamped them with the polka dot leaf image.
The tag was made using the Digital Cut file for Bold Celebrations. I enlarged it slightly so that my sentiment would fit. Then since I had it out and was having fun, I cut out one of the flowers from the Spring Medley set and used that to layer on my sentiment tag. So many possibilities!!
Thanks for visiting today - I hope you were inspired and maybe give this a try!! These would make super cute Easter cards, don't you think?! Take a few minutes now and visit the rest of the Pit Crew Too today! Have a creative day!
