Easter Bunny

Mewnin peeps!
 
Hope you are all having a fab weekend so far. Pudding club went very well last night. We have probably upped our calorie and cholesterol levels one hundred fold! Simon and I are not really pudding people any other time, so we will soon recover.
 
Okey dokey me 'ol chums onto another Easter card.



 
What you need...
 
Stamp: Bunny Behind - Crafty Impressions
Card stock: white, lime, turquoise, pale pink, bright pink
Dies: Framelits Ovals - Sizzix
Embossing folder: Swiss Dots - Cuttlebug
Punches: daisy, hole
Ink: Tuxedo Black - Memento
Promarkers: Pink Mittens, Icicle, Cool Grey 1
Baker's twine: pink
Button: pink
Rub-on sentiment
Adhesives
 
What you do...
 
Create a white 11.5cm x 14cm top fold blank. Cut a 10cm x 13cm piece of white card. Die cut an oval in the upper right corner and emboss with Swiss Dots.
 
Stamp, colour and cut out the bunny. Mount onto a piece of turquoise card, along with some grass cut in lime card and a white cloud. Trim so that it slightly bigger than the die cut oval, and attach to the card blank. Wrap and tie baker's twine around the bottom of the white embossed panel and attach centrally onto the blank with foam tape.
 
Punch out three daisies, one in pale pink, one in bright pink and one in turquoise. Use the hole punch to make the flower centres in white. Hand cut two leaves in lime card. Assemble the flowers and adhere to the lower right of the oval.
 
Apply a rub on sentiment to a piece of white card, trim into a banner and attach to the top left of the card, overlapping the edge slightly. Finish with a pink button threaded with baker's twine.
 
I fell in love with this bunny as soon as I saw it. You can buy this super cute stamp from http://www.craftsulove.co.uk/miscellaneous_stamps.htm and it is only £1.29.
 
I thought it would be interesting to have the bunny image sat behind a raised section of card. It took a while to get the position just right, but I am really pleased with the way the little bunny turned out. Introducing a small amount of bright colour with the lime, turquoise and pinks, really makes an impact. Hope you like :o)
 
Well, that's me for the nonce. I will be back soon with another make. I've just realised that by the time I post this, it will be afternoon - oh well, it was in the a.m. when I started.
 
Take care and thanks for dropping in. xxx
