A colony of Easter Bunnies!

Digi images from Digistamp Boutique

Bunny rabbits galore!

Felt inspired to make some Easter cards – with enough time to get them posted before Easter!
I love these bunny images. They are coloured with promarkers, then I tried to make each one different – because that’s much more fun than making 6 all the same.

Easter card

This is my favourite – and it’s made only using paper. I took a lilac polka dot card blank, added a scrap of pink polka dot card and a scalloped circle cut on the BigShot. I embossed the circle to make that dotty too and to add a bit of texture.

The flowers and butterflies are cut using a hand punch. I drew freehand on them with a fine sharpie pen, and added colour with the promarkers. The flower stalks are just green card strips, drawn on with the fineline sharpie. The flower pots are also drawn freehand and cut out. I wrote the greeting by hand too.

Easter card 2

This is my other favourite, and it used up lots of ribbon scraps which is a bonus! I don’t know where the butterfly came from – I found it in the box of potentially useful bits and bobs which gets bigger and bigger by the day! The greeting is hand stamped.

I hope you like my cards, and I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy Easter – hopefully there will be (chocolate) bunnies waiting for you on Easter morning.

30 days of creativity – day 13 – an easy peasy Easter card

Lots of people think cardmaking is hard, when the truth is it’s as easy as you want it to be!

There are loads of ideas and inspiration all over the web, and I found these cute bunny printables via pinterest.

(I know, I have broken an unwritten internet law – thou shalt not ever actually make or do something you pinned on pinterest.)

You can find the bunnies here and all you need to do is print them out.

bunnybunnybunnyI cut around mine with some teeny scissors – that was the hardest part of making this card – then glued them onto a 14cm square piece of patterned paper. I drew a black line around the edge because I like black lines. I stuck this onto a 15cm square white card and finished the cuteness off with some teeny pompoms I stole from found in my daughter’s art box. I stuck them on with silicone glue.

And there you go, easy peasy!
