Bunny in his New Ride

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have a new release of 36 Spring dies in the online store. There are a variety of designs so perfect for Easter or Spring cardmaking. Take a look in the store you definitely won't be disappointed. And, they are currently on a 25% off sale.

For my card today I am using the new Bunny Carrot Car  and the Happy Easter Greeting dies. He is just the cutest little thing. So perfect for your Easter card making. So let's get started with some details of how I created my card.

Step 1: I started my card this week with a sketch. I am using the Splitcoaststampers weekly sketch #737. I thought it would work well to showcase this sweet little bunny driving in his carrot car. 

I just had to select my card colors, and I decided on a soft green for my designer paper. 
White card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Pistachio Designer Paper: 2" x 5 3/8"
For the bunny and carrot car, I just chose colors that would coordinate well with the pistachio designer paper. 
Step 2: Now that all my elements are cut I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the designer paper to the white card base with double sided tape. 

For element 2 of the sketch I cut 2 rectangles for my Happy Easter sentiment. Used the 4th largest rectangle and pierced rectangle dies.  I was undecided what color to use for the rectangle that would be against the designer paper. I tried several colors and then settled on the pistachio shade. I cut the Happy Easter phrase from a Strawberry colored cardstock.  
I secured these panels together also using double sided tape. I decided to add some soft green sequins to the left side of this panel just to balance it off. 
I added this panel to the card base with double sided tape. 
To finish off my card I place the bunny image atop the rectangle panel. Secured it to the designer paper also using double sided tape. 
The sentiment panel still wasn't right for me so I added 2 additional sequins to the bottom left. And it was a fit and a wrap for my card. 
Well that's it for me for this week. See you next Saturday. The DT has begun showing these new dies so if you missed any of the cards you can look back on the Blog to view.
