Bunny cards, lots of bunny cards
I’d made 20 Easter cards for my great nieces, ages 18 months and 2.5 years, to take to school and day care on Thursday. So, so cute, and they would have been good for the CTS and Color Throwdown challenges.
Here are just some of those cards since I’d already delivered some of them:
and the inside:
The Gingham Gala DSP came in very, very handy for this card, as did the Best Bunny stamp and punch. I did find out that it is much, much easier to stamp, then color all those bunny pieces before punching them out! Just believe me here.
All Those Parts and Pieces
Any time I am doing a mass production of cards I do all the parts needed first. For this card, that meant running cardstock through the Subtle TIEF in the Big Shot and then cutting down into strips. Then I used the two largest ovals from the Stitched Shapes die set out of various colors of cardstock. The mats for all these cards have ovals cropped out of them, but no one else knows once the gingham DSP covers them up. The DSP was all cut down to 4 x 5.25 inches. Next were 40 Pretty Label Punch pieces, since each card required two pieces. I used the retired “Happy Easter” stamp for the front and the Best Bunny stamps for the inside.
In between all these pieces, I was stamping, coloring, and punching bunnies. At one point, I just had piles of bunny pieces all over my grid paper on my desk.
About halfway through these cards, I realized I hadn’t counted all the steps needed for each card. However, by then I was too far into it and didn’t want to really know how much was left.
The Two-fer Card
While I was working on all these, I just happened to check the challenges for the week. I found out that, unknowingly I had nailed the CTS sketch for the week. When I checked the Color Throwdown challenge, I knew that I could cover both challenges with one card. Color Throwdown was orange, blue, and yellow. BAM!
Here’s that card:
Next, I Needed Another 20 Easter Cards for Me
But those cards will be shared on Wednesday, with another version, for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop. It’s another fun fold card, but it’s one of the easiest I’ve even done. Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a Peachy day!
