With Easter being just around the corner, I thought it would be a great way to make a couple of cards for some special people. They will know who they are when they receive them!
Base Card – Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Bashful Blue
– 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm – cut, score & fold in half
Layer 1 – Pretty in Pink – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
I layered Pretty in Pink Cardstock onto each of Perfect Plum, So Saffron & Bashful Blue. I haven’t used any of these colours in so long, that it was great to get back to the Soft Colours.
I stamped the bunny using my Versamark
& Chocolate Chip Inks
, poured Clear Embossing Powder
over the top & heat set it with my Heat Tool
. I repeated this step for the other 2 cards. I then used the Masking Technique
for my bunny, inked my image in Certainly Celery
& stamped it over the bunny & Whisper White Cardstock
. Repeat twice for the other 2 cards.
Inking my flower image with Pretty in Pink Ink, I stamped it randomly among the reeds. I repeated the same step again for the 2nd card. For my third card, I used a butterly image & Bashful Blue Ink.
For my sentiment, stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock & heat embossed the ink using Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink & Perfect Plum Inks. I then punched them out using the Large Oval Punch. After punching a piece of Perfect Plum, So Saffron & Bashful Blue Cardstock using the Scallop Oval Punch, I adhered this to the sentiment & then to the cards. I adhered the Whisper White Cardstock to the base cards.
I coloured the Rhinestones
using my Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink & More Mustard Markers
. I applied a little Crystal Effects
over the top of each so that the colour would set, adhered some around the necks of the bunnys & to the centres of the flowers & butterfly images.
