Bunny Bookmark Card – Easter Series 2018

I’ve been having so much fun playing with the Your Next Stamp Cute Cat Bookmark dies! Since making the cats I had a play with the addon dies to make four more adorable animals. I then decided to turn the rabbit into an Easter card.

I started by creating the bunny. I used the YNS Cute Cat Bookmark and Cute Animals Add Ons dies with alchol marker friendly card stock, then coloured in the elements with my Spectrum Noir markers. Full details of how I made the bunny, as well as the other animals using the Add On dies, can be found in the video below.

I also have another video showing the process of making the card itself. That video is below, and is the first video on my Easter card series, which will be weekly between now and Easter.

I created a panel of tone-on-tone pink using the Simon Says Stamp Mod Flower background stamp with some Delicata Pink Shimmer ink onto some pink paper. I then used a couple of Sizzix Hexagon dies to cut out a frame. I didn’t originally intend to use the inner portion that was die cut out, but in the end I decided I would use it along with the frame.

I worked out how I wanted the layout of my card to be, then picked a sentiment to add to the card. The sentiment I chose comes from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Greetings stamp set. I again used the Delicata ink.

I used double-sided tape to adhere the hexagon panel to the card base, then popped up the frame with foam tape. I made sure to leave the bottom portion of the frame without tape to make sure there was space to slip the bunny inside.

I’m pretty happy with this card. I think the colours worked really nicely. I could have done a better job of adhering the pink panels into place, but that’s a minor quibble. I didn’t add any indication to this card that the bunny can be removed and used as a bookmark, but that can always be written alongside the message on the inside of the card.
