Easter Bunny


 Here's my first Easter card of 2021. I used a Lil Inker set of stitched bunny dies to make the bunny and his bow, adding a yellow gemstone to his bow and a tiny blue gemstone for his eye. I used some liquid applique for his tail and coated it well with clear wink of stella, then placed him on a die-cut stitched oval of some pastel baby blue shimmer cardstock. The background was done with a SU! Basket Weave Dynamic embossing folder on a piece of pastel yellow, and the sentiment was done with a Studio G $1 stamp I bought from Michaels probably a decade ago (or longer). The card base is blue indigo.

I'll enter this into the following challenges:

The Color Hues Challenge # 13 - use shades of yellow and blue


The Retro Rubber Challenge # 153 - Tic-Tac-Toe Grid and use a stamp more than a year old


I used the bottom horizontal line of Die or punch/Texture/Blue

Thanks for stopping by and may your day be filled with kindness!

Carol

Cute bunny with his extra fluffy tail. Nice to use a basket weave embossing folder as it ties it into the Easter theme, I look forward to seeing some more bunnies... maybe those jumpy ones, they're super fun ;) x

Awww, this is a sweet Easter card Carol! I love that bunny and his fluffy tail. He is so pretty on the blue oval sitting on that embossed background. Perfect as it looks like a basket, guess that is why they call it basket weave, huh?! lol Oh Gosh, I remember will buying Studio G stamps! lol They were all the rage for a while weren't they?! Hugs, Brenda
