Easter Bunny Card

Hi bloggers, Richele here!

Easter is just around the corner and who wouldn't love to receive a bright and cheery card like this. Die cuting makes it so easy to create simple and beautiful cards like this!



This card features the Easter Elements Bigz die, Butterflight On the Edge die, Tattered Florals Bigz die, the NEW French Script Texture Fade embossing folder and the NEW Tapered Fringe Sizzlits die that's perfect for making grass!



Use the French Script Texture Fade to emboss a yellow piece of card stock that has been cut to 4" x 5 1/4". Distress the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink with an Ink Blending tool. Optional - Sew around the outer edge with off white thread. I love the look of stitching on my projects!

To color the Easter Bunny apply Gathered Twigs Distress ink directly to your craft sheet then pick the ink up with a Detail Water Brush. After I added the shading to the bunny (like the ears, feet and the darker back) I dried the bunny with a Heat Tool. Now I used Gathered Twigs Distress ink on an Ink Blending tool to darken the edge and the back of the bunny.



Die cut the Butterflight on the edge die from watercolor paper. Color the butterflies with Distress ink on an Ink Blending tool. Start with the Squeezed Lemonade then add the Ripe Persimmon and then Picked Raspberry.

I inked the French Script stamp with Ripe Persimmon Distress ink on the outer part of the stamp and Picked Raspberry in the center. Carefully stamp the script onto the colored Butterflies. With scissors cut off the far left butterfly and trim the shape of a butterfly. This butterfly will be added to the top of the card later.



Die cut 3 or 4 small flowers from watercolor paper using the Tattered Floral Bigz die and color the flowers with Distress ink on an Ink Blending tool.



To make the grass, die cut light green cards stock using the Tapered Fringe Sizzlit die. Ink the die cut grass with Mowed Lawn Distress ink on an Ink Blending tool.



Scrunch up the grass a little. Working on the back side stager the grass, glue or tape together. Next add the butterfly strip the same way. Trim the unit to the width of your card.



Dye crinkle ribbon with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink by applying the ink directly to your craft sheet, spritzing with water and soaking it up with the ribbon.



Dry the ribbon with a Heat Tool and scrunch up the ribbon as it dries. Tie ribbon around grass with a bow.



Tie ribbon around the grass with a big bow. Use rub ons to add the word "wish" and tuck the enamel tag under the bow. Use foam tape to attach the grass/butterfly unit to the card.



Use foam tape to add the remaining elements to your card.

I love all the textures on this card that have been created by using all the different layers of die cuts. Which die cuts will you use for your Easter cards or projects?

Thanks so much for stopping in!

  10. Beautiful spring card. I love the colours. I have the butterfly on the edge die. Thankyou for sharing other ways to use it, just the inspiration I needed and one of the reasons I bought it in the first place. I need to use that die more! This gives me ideas for a spring wreath!
