ABC Springtime Card: Hoppin' Down The Bunny Trail

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday!
Today I have an Easter card to share with you that I made for ABC Toys & Crafts. Actually, two cards ;-) It started out as one, but I had such fun with it, that I ended up making it in another color as well, and I'll show you both:

I love the cute little Martha Stewart punches for Easter. The bunny is just adorable! But I have to admit, I just can not get the "Here comes Peter Cottontail...." song out of my head when I see it, lol! Anyway, I thought he would fit perfectly among the punched out Martha Stewart tulips, so I made a row of them and stuck him in there. And then I had an idea.... to make him fuzzy! :-) All I did was punch him out in some tan card stock and put light brown fun flock on him. Then, I added a little dot of white for his tail. Cute, huh?

My sentiment was stamped and layered onto card stock that I cut using the Spellbinder's classic and scalloped oval dies. I can not tell you how often I used these! They are wonderful and work perfectly on so many projects. And, ALL SPELLBINDER'S DIES are now on sale at 20% off- no coupon required- so make sure to check them out HERE!

I love the pattern paper from Crafty Secret's. This was from the Classic paper pad. It made a perfect Spring background for Peter and the tulips. I cut it into the cute scalloped shape using the Sizzix Scalloped Card die.

So then I went on to make the same card in pink. I just changed the sentiment and moved it over to the side.

Well there you have it: a couple of quick and easy Easter/ Spring cards.
I hope I have inspired you to make some Spring cards of your own. Easter is exactly one month from today, and will be here before we know it.

Thanks for stopping by.
Wishing you Springtime Blessings,

As always, Sarah, I love your designs! I have been wondering what I might do for my little grandkids in the way of an Easter card. This design gives me some great ideas. I especially love the bunny as I am all about texture and dimension. Thanks again for sharing your creativity with us.
