This is Mary with a quick and easy card for Easter, or just a spring card in general. There is a free PDF printable of the card template at the bottom of the post for your personal use. I do apologize for the coloring on some of the pictures - the lighting in my room is not the best at night.
Supplies Needed: Scissors, bone folder/stylus for scoring, ruler, black permanent marker, glossy accents or any quick dry adhesive, pink mist or paint, ribbon, white smooth cardstock, paintbrush, inks for stamping, letter stickers to add sentiment, ribbon
Step 1: Print the PDF file onto a piece of smooth cardstock.
Step 2: Cut out the bunny card (or better yet, cut the bunny template in half, place it along the fold in your cardstock and trace one bunny with the feet along the folded edge of the cardstock. Cut out bunny, making sure to leave the folded edge in tact along the bunny's feet.)
score card along feet
Step 3: If you cut out the whole bunny card, score along the middle line of the feet so that your bunny will fold to make a card. Fold over firmly, using the bone folder to make your crease along the bunny's feet.
Step 4: Put your greeting on the inside of the card. Stamp an image also using the Jenni Bowlin ink or another ink you have handy. Here I used letter stickers and a phrase sticker from the Jillibean Soup Chicken Dumpling Cardstock Stickers set. The stamp is one I've had for a very long time, and was stamped using Jenni Bowling for Ranger ink in Soap Powder. You could of course stamp a greeting instead of using letter stickers.
Step 5: Take the Mister Huey's/spray mist and shake well. Open the bottle and dip a paintbrush into the mist. Paint on a nose for your bunny. Since the mists are so thin, be sure to only pick up a little bit of the paint on your brush. You will only need a tiny amount of the spray mist.
Step 6: Attach a candy dot/googly eye to the front of your card. If using a plain white candy dot or pearl gem, take your black permanent marker and draw in a pupil. Let this sit to dry for at least ten minutes (or you'll smear the ink - you would think after three tries I would have gotten the hint ...)
Step 7: Add a ribbon around the bunny's neck and tie into a bow. Use glossy accents or liquid glue to put a small dot behind the bow to hold in place. Glossy accents along the cut edges of the ribbon will prevent fraying as well.
And that's it! You have yourself a very simple Easter card. You can add more embellishments in any way that you like and add on a pom-pom for the tail.
Hope you enjoyed the cad. We would love to see what you come up with using the template.
...and as always, happy creating!
