Have A Happy Sunny Bunny Day-SAS4Kids
Hello, happy February! This month at Send A Smile 4 Kids we are creating spring/Easter cards for kids. I wanted to create a fun card that would work for either a boy or a girl. I cracked out my Darcie's Heart & Home Feathers and Fur stamp set and stamped the adorable bear, bunny, and chick images onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock. I colored them using my alcohol markers and then stamped their "hands" separately, colored them, and fussy cut them out. Using patterned paper from the Doodlebug Springtime 6x6 paper pad I layered a green base onto my A2 white card base and then created a panel using the colored images and more of the patterned paper and die cut it using a stitched edge rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. I popped it up off of the card using some 3M foam tape for some fun dimension. I added a small fishtailed banner at the lower left side of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set using Memento tuxedo black ink and then die cut it using a pierced edge circle die from My Favorite Things and then added it some of the same patterned paper I used in the background using a slightly larger Spellbinders circled die. The sentiment also got popped up for a bit more dimension. To finish this fun card off I added some white gel pen details to the critters and then added some light green enamel dots from Snap at the corners. I love this adorable card and can't wait to see what the rest of the team created for this month's challenge!
