A Bunny Love Sequel

Img_0978_2 I love, love this card designed by Sarah Moore, so I made four of them. Sarah gives some excellent instructions for her Diorama card that I won’t repeat (see yesterday’s post), but here are a few additional tips.

Img_0974Tip One – Scalloped Border: The technique Sarah used to create the scalloped pink inner border was one we learned at Houston Stampin’ Up! regionals, though I don’t know whether Sarah learned it there. She’s so clever, who knows, she may have originated the idea. She made 16 circles using the 1/2" circle punch and attached them into the inside of the egg she made with Whisper White card stock and the Coluzzle System. Here’s what mine looks like from the back when I finished adding my circles. It’s nice to have a little embellishment if your circles don’t line up exactly all around, so she added the marker-colored eggs from the same Bunny Love stamp set.

Tip Two – 3D Flower: I didn’t want that big ole’ egg with all it’s glittery splender to overcome the rest of the card so I added additional shape and shine to my flower. After I punched out the flower shapes I cupped them with our stylus on the softer mat of the mat pack.

Img_0973Then I added some Crystal Effects on the flower so it would hold its shape, and, because you know I like to do things in three’s, I also added Crystal Effects to the eggs on the outside left corner of the egg and the tip of the bunny’s nose. To finish my flower I stamped the leaves from the Pocket Fun stamp on Certainly Celery with White Craft ink and also added Crystal Effects to them. The Cyrstal Effects really makes the color stand out, lets the flower keep its shape and gives that popular epoxy-sticker look.

Tip Three – Small Appendeges: This card has such a great layered look. But, what do you do when you want to cut out an image so you can layer it and pop it up with dimensional adhesives, but that image has really skinny legs you can’t possibly cut out? Check out the little chick image. I cut that poor chick’s leg off.

But the chick isn’t staying handicapped. I restamped the chick, or the missing parts at least, where I planned to adhere the chick.

Now, when I put my chick on the card with poppin dimensionals, ta da . . . she has legs again.

  2. What a fabulous looking card! I am thrilled to pieces with the circles used as scallops…..whoever thought of that is a total genius! Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us!

  3. What a great idea for making your own Scalloped edging.
    Your card is very cute.

  4. thanks for all of the tips!

  5. This is so beautiful and reminds me of hard sugar Easter eggs with little scenes inside that I used to get as a child — and never wanted to eat because they were too pretty. Here’s one you can display forever! Really nice how-tos.

  6. What a great tutorial! And what an adorable card!
