Hoppy Easter Card Tutorial
My project features these bunnies, eggs and sentiments from the fun and gorgeous new Honey Bunny Boo stamp set. Think of it as a snapshot of some adorable springtime fun!
Firstly, I started out with an A6 white card panel of Copic friendly Clare Fontaine 210gsm DCP Paper. With a pencil, I traced the inner section of the largest photo frame from the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese, Again die and masked off the area with some Post-It Notes.
Secondly, Using some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink I stamped out three of the bunnies and all of the eggs from the set, using plenty of fussy-cut Post-It Notes as masks. I stamped the bunnies first and then the eggs to create this scene. The MISTI is absolutely perfect for this type of project!
Thirdly, once I finished stamping and removed the masks, I coloured the scene in with my Copic markers. I deliberately chose bright colours to give the scene a springtime feel.
Yellows: Y38, Y17, Y15, Y21;
Greens: G29, YG17, YG93;
Blues: B01, B00, B000, B000;
Purples: BV08, V09, V06;
Pinks: RV69, RV09, RV06;
Greys: W00, W0, W2, W3, W4, W5, W6;
Browns: E37, E35, E33, E31, E00; E19, E15, E13, E11.
Once coloured, I stamped a sentiment from the set in black ink underneath the scene.
Next, for the photo frame, I used the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese, Again die cut from black cardstock. I arranged two sentiments from the set on the bottom, stamped with Versamark ink and white heat embossed.
Finally, I popped up the frame with some foam tape and adhered it to the panel. I mounted this on a top-folding A6 card base using the MISTI to line everything up (a truly fantastic and time saving tip from the wonderful Lesley Oman!). I finished up the card by adding a little clear Wink of Stella for some shine.
