Easter is just 2 days away and I still want to make cute cards with bunnies and chicks. I am also on my Spring Break finally, so I can give into feeling.
This card is inspired by a card I saw on the Lawn Fawn Blog about a month ago. I loved all the white space with just a hint of color.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with some white cardstock. I cut two cross stitched rectangles from the card stock. I used one panel and my base and the other panel to die the layers from. I die cut two grassy borders and one cloud border.
I saved the negative pieces to use as masks. I lined the cloud border on the base panel and lined up the negative piece. I left a very small gap between the two. I removed the cloud border. Then, I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool to add some Salty Ocean Distress Ink to the base panel over the mask. Once I removed the mask, I adhered the cloud border over the top of the ink blending, leaving just a little bit of the blue ink showing.
I repeated the same process with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink and the larger grassy border piece. For the small grassy border, I ink on the larger grassy border piece to create dimension.
Once my background was built, I need a critter for my scene. I settled on a bunny. I stamped the bunny on a scrap of white card stock in very light gray ink. I added color to the heart on the bunny with a Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I fussy cut the bunny out and adhered him to the panel.
I stamped my sentiment in the same light grey ink. It is a little hard to see, but matched my card design so I went with it. I felt the scene was missing something, so I added a butterfly in the same light grey ink and Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
To create the card itself, I made a white card base and die cut a few more layers. One layer was cut from dotted velum and one was cut from light pink cardstock. I layered the velum over the pink card stock to soften it. I layered everything together and adhered them to my card base.
This is not my typical card style but I like the way it turned out anyway.
