Happy Easter – Sweet Bunny

Easter is quickly approaching and so many challenges have selected this occasion for their current theme.  So, let’s play!  Starting with The Card Concept (#172) Easter Blessings with selected Colors.

Here is the result:

SUMMER AFTERNOON – EIGHT GREAT GREETINGS – TCC172 – DT107 – CCI541 – ISC27 – TGIFC363

Steps:

  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5⅜” x 4⅛”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with the retired Dotted pattern Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.
  • Accent Mat: (2⅞” x 2⅞”) Basic Gray cardstock. 
  • Focal Panel: (2¾” x 2¾”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The Rabbit and Bicycle Image from the retired Summer Afternoon stamp set was stamped with Stazon Black ink.
    • With the Fine-Tipped Water Painter Brush, the Grass, the Flowers, the Bunny and the Basket were water-colored using Certain Celery, Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue inks direct from Ink Pad lid.
    • The Bicycle was colored with both the Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.
    • The Bunny was stamped on to a piece of repositionable tape, fussy cut with Paper Snips and used as a Mask.
    • With a Blending Brush, Certain Celery ink was brushed across the bottom for a more complete Grassy Patch and Balmy Blue ink was brushed across the top for the Sky.
  • Sentiment Circle: (approximately 1”) Basic Gray cardstock from center of the Accent Panel.
    • The sentiment, happy easter, from the retired Eight Great Greetings stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.  I chose this greeting for its smaller font size.
    • The sentiment was die-cut with the smallest circle die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies set.  I often like to use the center of an accent panel, when possible, for additional die-cuts because the “holes” will not show when the focal panel is adhered to the accent panel.
  • Cross Strips – Ribbon: Two pieces of retired (⅛”) Grapefruit Grove Grosgrain Ribbon.

All of the elements were adhered together to resemble the sketch. The sentiment circle was popped up with Dimensionals.

A pretty little scene.  Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!

  3. Jolanda, what a beautiful Easter card! I love how you’ve kept it simple, yet created a wonderful Easter scene using all three of our Double Trouble challenge parts! The dotted background is a genius way to anchor your bike panel without getting “fussy”. Thank you so much for sharing your card and creative talents with us at Double Trouble!!! -Donna
