Hello, I’m popping in with a quick post today. It’ is birthday season for my youngest and as he loves his pets so much I had to whip up another bunny card! The thing is, I find colour schemes for boys to be a bit tricky. However, when I got the new dye ink colours from Wendy Vecchi for Ranger, I thought the muted colours would be just perfect for a boys card without it being too pastel and babyish. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
I searched through my stash and pulled out all the rabbit images and chose this cutie from the Easter Greetings set. I stamped him in Intense Black ink and very simply coloured him with Copic markers – warm greys, W0, W3, W5, W7 and R12 for the cheeks and inner ears. I then trimmed him out and set him aside while I worked on the rest of the card.
I blended Tea Rose, Peat Moss, Sky Blue and Thistle over pieces of Neenah Solar White card and then when fully dry ran them through with the Ring Frame die and gathered all the circles together. I then ran the die through again with Neenah Solar White 110lb card for a nice sturdy frame. I added foam adhesive to the back of the frame and added it to a panel of Ivory card cut with a Wonky Rectangle die for nice edge detailing. I then pieced the four colours of circles into the open frame using more foam adhesive to keep them in place, but before doing so, I added Rocky Candy glitter to the Peat Moss circles with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and then a coat of Glossy Accents over the Tea Rose circles. For a balanced look, I used three circles from each of the colourways and dotting them into the frame in a triangle formation.
To finish the card I stamped the hello talk bubble from the Easter Greetings set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, trimmed out and added with foam adhesive, I added the bunny with more foam adhesive and then finally stamped on black card a coordinating sentiment from the Easter Greetings set and white heat embossed before trimming to a skinny banner and foam mounting under the bunny. I then mounted the finished panel on a Fog card base.
