Handcrafted Easter Card – Some Bunny Loves You

This handcrafted Easter card – Some Bunny Loves You – was created for a few challenges that will be listed at the end of this post.  First, the image was colored using Spectrum Noir markers.  Then, I cut the image into a circle and inked the edges with Crushed Concord Distress Ink from Ranger.  This image is not colored as well as I would have liked – a few bleeds and funky shading, but overall I am pleased.  This image is called Harriet and and Ragga from Crafty Sentiments.  They have so many cute images!  Make sure you check out their great selection!

The layout of this card is based off of a sketch listed in the challenges below.  I knew that I wanted to use dots and stripes for another challenge and I just found this awesome green sequin ribbon at the Dollar Tree.  So, I started searching my stash for stripes and dots in green in purple to go with my sweet image.  To assemble the card, I started by attaching the purple polka dot paper to the green striped paper.  Then, I used 1/8″ Scor-Tape to attach the sequin ribbon.  Next, I placed the circle, lifting the ribbon so the edge would cover the circle.

The sentiment was printed and cut with my rectangle Stitched Die from Tim Holtz.  Then, I took a few of the sequins off of the thread and glued them near the image and around the sentiment.  Finally, I placed all of the layers onto a kraft paper card blank measuring 5″ x 6 1/2″.
