Craftie Cafe: Happy Easter #2 (+ Shaker Card!)
Memory Box always has very versatile and cute dies – the Sketch Bunny and Background were perfectly paired together to create so many different options that they were instantly added to my Craftie Café shopping cart so that I could share two ways to create a card with them.
The first card I decided I wanted see what these bunnies would look like together. So I created a simple layout that showcased the bunnies. I first die-cut the background bunnies (x6) which I then stamped using Impression Obsessions – Mini Patterns 2 - Cling Rubber Stamp and a selection of lawn fawn inks. I then die-cut the sketch bunny (outline) in co-ordinating colours that matched the inks and then adhered the pairs together. I assembled my card – stamping the sentiment and adhering the six bunnies to my card front. I machine stitched a white border (optional) and I added little pompoms (I’m not entirely sure what they’re called – but they came out of my kids craft box!) for little bunny tails.
Here is the card:
For my second card I created a fun shaker card.
Instead of stamping the mini patterns on the bunny background I instead stamped them on white card and used the bunny (outline) sketch as my ‘windows’ for my shaker card. Once these bunnies (x3) were die-cut I adhered acetate to the back, covered the back in foam tape, added the sequins then adhered the stamped background paper (to keep the sequins in) before adhering it to my card base. Next I die-cut the bunny (outline) in co-ordinating colours and adhered these to the front of the bunnies. I stamped my sentiment and embellished with enamel dots. Again, there is a machine stitched border for added interest (optional).
Below are supplies used to create both cards.
