I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter weekend. I’m back with a CASE of an adorable card designed a couple of years ago by Krafting with Karen. I discovered it when it was shared on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Facebook page exactly one year ago today. I had actually completely forgotten about the card until it popped up in my Facebook memories this morning. As soon as I saw it again, I immediately decided to make it today since Easter is tomorrow. 🙂
I used the Stampin’ Up!® Oval Framelits to create the bunny’s head and ears. I used the two smallest ovals for the ear pieces and the next to largest oval for the head. Karen created the nose on her card using a small oval punch which has subsequently been retired. I thought about cutting one out on my Cricut Explore, but decided since was fairly small anyway, I would just wing it and fussy cut it. It’s not “perfectly” smooth and/or oval, but it’ll do.
To give the bunny’s features a bit of dimension, I sponged around the edges of each piece. I used Blushing Bride ink on the pink polka dot paper (from the Hello Happiness 6×6 paper stack from Taylored Expressions) and Smoky Slate on the white cardstock pieces. I also used the Blushing Bride ink for the blush on the bunny’s cheeks.
I drew on the eyes and whiskers by hand using a .03 Copic multiliner. I then went over the eyes a second time with a black Glaze pen to give the eyes some extra dimension and shine.
I assemble the card, I adhered all of my bunny pieces to the main background panel (also from the Hello Happiness paper collection). I adhered the ears flat on the main panel using tape runner then popped the bunny’s head up using Dimensionals. I added the main panel to an A2 top-folding card base made from white cardstock.
For the sentiment, I used the Happy Easter stamp from the Chirpy Chirpy Chirp stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I punched it out using the Word Window punch and layered it on a piece of pink polka dot paper that I punched using the Modern Label punch which, sadly, has been retired. You could substitute and use the Washi Label punch instead. I adhered it to the card using more Dimensionals then added a Blushing Bride candy dot on either side of the sentiment.
To finish off the card, I added a small bow made from 3/8″ Lost Lagoon satin stitched ribbon to one of the bunny’s ears. I considered using pink ribbon, but thought the Lost Lagoon went really nicely with the teal color in the background paper and helped tie everything together (pardon the pun).
Until next time …
