Hatching Bunny (new die)

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 card making. Take a look in the store you definitely won't be disappointed.

For my card today I am using the new Hatching Bunny die. He is just too cute peeking out of the cracked egg. I couldn't resist using him on an Easter card. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card. 

Step 1: Having a layout in mind at the card start is always a big boost for me. That way I can just choose the card colors and designer paper and I am good to go. I liked this week's sketch #740 on Splitcoaststampers because of the somewhat simplistic design. I thought the stacked diamond shapes would be perfect as a background for this little bunny.  
I looked through my designer papers to get one that had some soft Spring like colors to it. I settled on this one that I have had since 2012. It had all the colors that I wanted. 
Soft Blue card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

For the diamond shapes I used the Stitched Square set (5th largest) die set and cut in Primrose cardstock. For the vanilla layers I used the Square Set (5th largest) die. I sponged background clouds on the top 2 diamonds with tumbled glass distress ink. On the bottom diamond I sponged mowed lawn distress ink. 
The Hatching Bunny and other elements from this die are all cut from cardstock. I used a cocoa shade for the bunny, a medium green for the grass, primrose for the tulip and a soft blue patterned paper for her little bow. 
I decided to stamp a sentiment on the egg as well as the top diamond shape. A "Easter Hello" phrase seemed right for this card. 

Now that all the elements are cut I am ready to start card assembly. 

Step 2: I secured the designer paper to the card base using double sided tape. 
The diamonds are secured with the same medium. 
Started layering my Bunny image from the grass up on the diamond shapes.
 I kept looking at my card and thought it just needs something else. So I decided to add a small sun image on the top panel and scattered some blue sequins around the card. And, that did it for me. Card is complete and so is my post for this week.

I hope I have given you some inspiration and an idea for a way to use this cute new die. Have a great week and I will see you next Saturday.
