"Out of the box" cards

The other day I posted a few cards made in the shape of a purse.  Today, I have two cards that feature a garden gate.  They were made with a garden gate die.  Sometimes it is fun to break out of the box and create cards that are something other than squares or rectangles.

The first card was made with the retired Stampin Up set , "The Gifts of Spring."  This is one of my favorite SU Easter sets.  The background paper is from Basic Grey's Wisteria paper pad.  Wouldn't it look cute to look out into your yard and see these three bunnies? 

This card features a free digi bunny from a newer digital stamp blog called Cocodingo.  The artist is a French-speaking Canadian, unless you speak French, you need to use the translate bar to translate her blog.  The background paper is from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush paper pad.  The butterflies and grass were cut with Martha Stewart punches.  I'm not a big Martha Stewart fan, but I do love her punches.  The easter basket is a pre-made embellishment that was given to me.
