The third week of every month is a sketch challenge! It’s always a favorite challenge for me. Here’s the link to the sketch and all twelve inspiration cards made by the design team: Crazy4Challenges
For some reason, I’ve been in a mood to color and watch TV when I’m not working. So because Easter is right around the corner, I decided to start making a few Easter themed cards. This adorable stamp by Pink & Main is called “Bunny Costume“. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. It’s too bad because it is one I pull out every year!
Step 1: Stamp something that will be the focus of the card. Color and cut the image out. I used Copic Markers. I also stamped the Easter Eggs and the “chocolate Easter bunny” box. After I colored them I fussy cut them out. I applied clear Lacquer to the “bunny boxes”
Step 2: I cut the image using Elizabeth Craft Designs: Stitched Nested Rectangles.
Step 3: I cut the two yellow gingham 2″ squares using Elizabeth Craft Designs: Stitched Squares. I hand cut the green and white polka dot rectangle.
Step 4: My card is a 5.5″ square, so I made the base card by scoring an 11″ x 8.5″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″. Fold over for a tent fold and trim to a 5.5″ square..
Step 5: Adhere the yellow squares to the top front as in the sketch. Adhere the green rectangle under the squares, and then the featured stamped rectangle on top, centered. I then added some of the “fussy cut” bunny boxes and eggs as shown. The two grass pieces I tucked them into were left overs from another project. Here’s another look:
