Miss Petunia Bunny

Hi, Lois here with a quick Easter card.  CottageCutz's Spring/Easter release has lots of cute dies.  I'm using three of them on my card today -- Happy Easter Phrase, Miss Petunia Bunny, and Spring Meadow.   Before I explain about my card, I first wanted to remind you that there is a 25% discount sale on the newest Rise and Shine release in the CottageCutz store, with lots of cute breakfast and cooking dies.  Be sure to check them out while the sale continues.

And now for my card:

Before cutting out the dies, I put a sheet of two-sided adhesive on the back of a piece of white cardstock to make adhering the smaller die-cuts easier.  To tell the truth, I waver back-and-forth between using the adhesive sheets and not.  Either process will work well if you have a fine-tip applicator on your glue for when you don't use the adhesive sheet.

After cutting out the pieces, I colored them and constructed each element.  I used a black mini brad for Miss Petunia's eye.

Then I gathered the supplies for my card base:

White cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Sky patterned paper - 4" x 5 1/4"
Brick patterned paper - 4" x 1 1/2"
Green cardstock to cut the grass from the Spring Meadow die

I then constructed my card base, adding the "Happy Easter" phrase.  

After slipping Miss Petunia between the rows of grass, I placed the egg on the wall, and stuck the flowers (from the Happy Easter Phrase die) to the stems within the grass.  I tend to work "by the seat of my pants" and realized that the phrase didn't really stand out as much as I had envisioned, so I pulled out my Dark Green Wink of Stella brush and went over the lettering.  I was much happier with the result -- it now glitters!

CottageCutz dies used on this card are:

Absolutely adorable Lois. I love Miss Petunia Bunny, there are just so many things that you can do with her. I used her and Mr. Peter Rabbit and made a wedding card for a friend of my husbands. It turned out so cute that it was hard for me to part with it. LOL Have a great week. ~ Hugs, Sherry

Miss Petunia Bunny seems to be on her egg hunt, collecting as she goes. I don't know how she's going to handle that big one on the wall but I'm sure she'll find a way! Very cute scene Lois!
