Easter…

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.

Stamp Set – Chocolate Bunny, Well Scripted, Priceless, So Happy For You
