1. Stain the wood block using the Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distress Stain.
2. Using the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up “Cute” Garden Paper, trace the shape of the wood and cut out.
3. Glue the cut out piece of paper to the block of wood using Mod Podge. Press firmly to make sure it is adhered well. I like to use a brayer tool to really press down hard on it.
4. As the Mod Podge is drying, use a large file or some kind of sanding tool and sand the sides of the wood heavily. You want to sand off quite a bit of the paper and expose a raw edge to the paper.
5. Cut out the word "Easter" out of vinyl using the Sizzix eclips Easter cartridge.
6. Peel the vinyl off to make a stencil for your word Easter. You will have to add the circle for the "a" and the "e" back into the stencil to complete it.
7. Place the stencil onto the wood and press down firmly.
8. Using the Inkssentials blending tool and the Walnut Distress Ink, lightly ink inside the stencil. Once you have inked it as much as you want, let the ink dry fully then peel off the stencil. You should now have the word Easter printed on your paper.
9. Mod Podge the entire block. Allow to dry.
10. Using the Easter Cartridge and the green cardstock, cut out two pieces of grass 1.16" x 4.33". You will need two pieces of grass to cover the bottom of the block.
11. Once the grass is cut, glue it down to the bottom of the block, piecing together the two pieces of grass.
12. Add the Jolee's Boutique Rocking Eggs Repeats behind the grass.
