Bunny Easter Cards

This post is about some of the Easter cards I have made for this year. For this card I used the Stampin Up Buffalo Check background stamp as well as their Bunny Builder Punch. The greeting "Happy Easter" is from the new kit from Queen & Co for their Easter projects.  I used different colours for the cards but made these all the same:

For all the bunnies I used the tail the punch punches out for the bunny and I used flocked white card stock for those. But for this one card I used a white pom pom for the tail:

To begin with I cut all the white card fronts and the white inside piece. Then I cut the black card stock for the fronts and also cut and scored the card stock bases.  I tried to match the card stock bases with the colour inks I used for stamping.

For the Buffalo Check across the fronts of the cards I laid the Buffalo Check background stamp on the work table, stamp side up. Using painter's tape I taped off the part of the stamp I did not want to get ink on:

With the tape across the stamp I tapped the ink pad on the stamp over and between the blue painter's tape to ink a section of the stamp. With that section inked I removed the painters tape and laid the white card stock front piece on top of the inked stamp and pressed it onto the stamp using my fingers to press the white card stock into the stamp to get the inked image onto the white card stock. With that done I cleaned the stamp and taped and re-inked the stamp for all the colours I was using.

Once I had the Buffalo Check pattern on the white card stock I also inked the Easter greeting stamp in the same ink colour and stamped the greeting below the plaid section. With all the stamping completed I assembled the cards. For the bunny I punched him out of Paper Trey Ink kraft card stock and sponged the edges with a light brown ink. I put the bunny on the card fronts using large glue dots. Added a white tail to each bunny to complete that.

Wanted some sparkle on the card front so I added some holographic white sequins on the front. I tried to use pastel colours rather than the brights or regals.  TFL
