The Easter Bunny is coming

Easter is quickly approaching and this will be the first one where I won’t have any of my three boys here with us.  No nieces or nephew around either.  No little kids.  It’s going to be a grown up Easter lunch.  I’m also not hosting this year – we will be going to Greg’s cousin’s on Sunday instead.  So even though I didn’t need any invitations or treats for Easter baskets I did create a few Easter things this year.  I previously shared the little box with the chocolate carrot – now here is a bunny card.  I actually made two version using slightly different colors.

This is the second one I made using Pumpkin Pie card stock and Peekaboo Peach ribbon.  It matched the little box.

This was actually the first one I created and it uses So Saffron for his hat and a Mint Macaron bow.

Here are some tips for these cards:

  • The base is Thick Whisper White card stock cut to 3″ wide.
  • Stamp with the Hardwood background stamp using Sahara Sand ink – but stamp off once on your grid paper so that it’s really light.
  • The hat is a 3″ square also stamped with the Hardwood stamp and glued to the top of the card.
  • The brim of the hat is a 4-1/4″ strip, stamped and put on with dimensionals.  This makes your card 4-1/4″ wide and still fits in a medium sized envelope.
  • I used the Basket Bunch stamp set to stamp his whiskers – its the flower stem – i just inked half of it and stamped three time on each side of a hand drawn mouth
  • Eyes are from the Basket Builder Framelit dies – it’s the small leaf die.
  • Nose is the tip of the Medium star punch.
  • Ears are from the Basket Builder Framelit dies – it’s the long leaf die.  And then hand drew with a marker for the inside of the ears.
  • Add a bow with a glue dot.

A fun card that goes along with some of the other “pallet” cards I’ve made in the past.

The retiring list is now out – be sure to shop online for your favorites – including this Basket Bunch set and dies – they are retiring!!  SHOP NOW.

Happy Easter!
