Day 25
"Egg Hunt"
Baby Balleigh Bunnies slimline card
by Leigh
 
My Spring Blog Hop finale inspiration for you today is a fun Easter card featuring my new Baby Balleigh Bunnies, Tipsy, Nibbles and BunBun, as well as the Easter Eggs and one of the senties from the Bunny Balleigh Monster set plus the clouds from the Rainbow Arch set.


 I fussy cut out the Baby Bunnies and Easter Eggs and coloured them with Prismacolor pencils.  I decided not to colour the clouds for this card.  To give the bunnies fun dimension I molded their cute little ears by curving and bending the cardstock.


I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut out the slimline card elements, the folded card base and the 2 scalloped panels.  I added 3 square cuts in the top panel to make the windows.  


I also cut out 2 grass borders (Paige Evans) from 2 shades of green cardstock with my Silhouette.  Then trimmed them to size to create the layered grass scenes for each window for the Easter Eggs to hide in.


For the background I cut a piece of cardstock a bit larger than the top panel and coloured the sky with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide inks.  I then embellished the assembled card with my “egg hunt” senti and Crystal Stickles glitter glue and 4 tiny yellow pearlescent pearls.


🌼🐰🌼 Shop for these new sets and more in the Spring Sale 🌼🐰🌼
 

 Thanks for stopping by to see today's featured make and joining in on this month’s festivities!  See you again soon for the Winner announcement and April’s birthday celebrations🎉
Happy Hopping!
