Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge this week is to be inspired by mythology or a story. I choose Peter Rabbit, because it is spring and I have been itching to use this stamp set. In the end I made two similar cards. I used the Simon Says March 2018 Card Kit.
Size: A2 cards
Extra Details: I began these cards by stamping the rabbits and carrots on smooth white card stock. I used Prismacolor pencils to add the shading. I fussy cut out the images leaving a small white border.
For the first card, I found a mint die cut circle I had left over from another project and adhered one rabbit and a carrot. I stamped the sentiment in a grey ink. I choose a kraft card base, but felt it was very plain. I stamped the carrot image all over the card base with a brown ink. Then, I adhered the circle and rabbit to the card front. Lastly, I added a white pom-pom for the bunny’s tail.
For the second card, I covered a white card base with a piece of patterned paper from the Simon Says Stamp Match 2018 card kit. I used a crossed stitched rectangle die to cut the paper to the correct size. I added a small strip of a second patterned paper as a ledge for my bunny to sit on. I adhered the bunny and added the pom-pom tail. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment on some white card stock and die cut it with a banner die.
