Deanna's Easter Bunny Card
With Easter just a week away I made this cute Easter card for you. My card base is white card stock cut at 7” X 10” and scored at 5” and folded to make a 5” X 7” card base. I then used some scraps from my stash to cut a 4 ¾” X 6 ¾” mat out of plaid paper. The green mat is also from my stash and was cut at 4 ½” X 6 ½”. My bunny was cut at 3” out of brown card stock from the Easter 2010 seasonal Cricut cartridge. To make my bunny really stand out, I sprayed him with some Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist then let him dry. Once was dry I adhered him to my card with my ATG gun.
Once my bunny was attached to my card I decided he needed some grass so I pulled out my Flower Soft. I started with drawing a line with my Flower Soft Adhesive underneath my bunny and applying some Meadow Flower Soft. Working in sections, I then filled in the area from under the bunny to the bottom of my green mat with adhesive and applying the flower soft. Once I had the flower soft all over the adhesive I pressed down on it gently with my hand to make sure it was well adhered to the glue. I let it dry for a few minutes and then gently taped off the excess flower soft.
Now my bunny needed some Easter eggs. I again pulled out some scraps of paper and a couple of small egg stamps that I picked up last Easter. I used some Memento Ink to stamp my eggs. The colors I used were Rosebud and Bahama Blue ink to stamp my eggs. For the purple egg, I used some watermark ink. I hand cut the eggs out using a small pair of scissors. To bling up my eggs I add some Turquoise, Glam Pink, and Purple Stickles. On the solid eggs I added some matching colored I-Rock gems to the center of the flowers and a black gem to the eye of the bunny. Once my eggs were all decorated and dry and attached them to the grass with my Flower Soft Adhesive.
To finish my card I added a brown pompom that I lightly sprayed with the Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist to the tail of my bunny, tied a narrow purple ribbon around his neck and stamped my sentiment with Rosebud Memento Ink.
