Spring bunny and duck

Hi! Janja here with you.
I made two spring cards for today's post. Let's look at them.

- CottageCutz dies: Hide & Seek Bunny, Duckling in Easter Basket, Nested Stitched Scallop Oval Set
- blank card: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" (10,8 x 14 cm), folded
- gingham pattern paper
- colored cardstock
- colored ink pads
- colored markers
- glue, double-sided adhesive tape, self-adhesive foam pads

I started making cards by die-cutting all the pieces for both main motifs out of different colored cardstock. For more depth, I shaded all the pieces with ink pads.

For both cards, I used gingham pattern paper in two colors. I trimmed both papers to the size of a base card and attached them to the front.
For the background I used white cardstock that I cut out as shown. I lightly shaded the background with ink pad and brush.

The bunny and duck are attached to the background with foam pads.

To complete the cards, I trimmed two paper strips and arranged them as in the photos, slightly above and below the central motifs.

Have a nice day.
