Vintage Hoppy Easter Card


Thank you for joining me, Corina, for my blog post showcasing my Vintage Easter Bunny Card. 

To start my card, I embossed Kraft cardstock for the base and center square using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I applied an Archival Ink pad in Coffee Colour direct to paper, hitting the raised embossed areas. I wanted a Shabby Chic look so I applied the ink heavily not worrying about the ink colouring the non embossed area. 

I used my sewing machine to sew around the border of the base, Burlap layer, and center square. I love the added touch that the sewn stitches give cards. A group of three flowers, a piece of lace, and twine adorn the left corner.

I applied Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel to the Vintage Oval Mirror Fancy and heat set to give a vintage look. The grass was cut using a Cheery Lynn Designs Grass Border die. I over lapped using two different green tones and laid them inside the bottom of the Vintage Oval Mirror Fancy.

I used one chipboard bunny from the Lg Bunnies set and he is nestled into the grass, as a focal point in the center of the Oval Mirror Frame. I covered the entire Bunny with Be Creative double sided tape, sprinkled bronze glitter and burnished. I added one sentiment tag from the Easter wood tags to the bottom of the Oval Mirror Frame. I cut the loop off the left side of the Hoppy Easter tag with scissors and edged with vintage Photo Distress Ink. Added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter and Star Dust pen to the top to give a shimmer.
