Juggling Spring Bunny

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 day edition of the Blog.

The new release of Spring dies are available in the online store and 25% off for a limited time. There are 27 new dies in the release and each one is cuter than the next. They are perfect for your Easter and Spring card making.

Today, I am featuring the new Juggling Spring Bunny and created another Easter card. With all that's happening in the world right now, I am going to send more cards this year. I think it will help brighten someone's spirits to receive some happy mail. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

This week I started my card with a sketch. As I have said so many times before, having a layout in mind at the start of my card is always a big boost for me. It jump starts my creative thought process. I love working with the sketches that are out there in the online world. That way I just choose the colors and designer paper and I am good to go.

I liked this week's sketch #793 from Splitcoaststampers. It is a bit different of a layout, but I thought my bunny would look cute sitting atop the half circle #3.
I wanted a fun background paper for the bunny and chose this one from my collection. I thought the pattern would be broken up enough with the 2 half circles of the sketch.

Rich Razzleberry Card Base: 41/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Circle & Stitched Circle dies: 5 & 6th largest
Element 4 of sketch: 5/8" - used bermuda bay cardstock

Next, I cut the bunny and eggs in cardstock colors to match the designer paper. 
I decided to use a punny sentiment and stamped in rich razzleberry ink. I started card assembly using double sided tape as my adhesive.. 

I attached the bunny to the top semi-circle using double sided tape and the eggs are attached with glue dots. 
To complete my card I added some bermuda bay enamel dots. And I have another Easter card for the stash. 

Well that's it for me for this week. Hope you get some craft time in this weekend or even during the week if your job is considered non-essential and your required to stay at home. It's definitely a way to relax and take your mind off all the corona-virus stories. See you next Saturday!
