Layered Easter bunny

I think I’ve pretty much used all of the Easter bunny digi stamps in my collection so, rather than go hunting for a new one, I took a different tack for this card for my other half’s sister. I’d been trying to organise the various cut files I’d acquired over the years and came across a set of layered Easter tags that I’d picked up on offer a while back. There were a few bunnies to choose from and I picked this one because it was the most realistic bunny and I like the foliage swirls in the foreground.

The designs cut out really cleanly with my Cricut Maker (which I have already used more than I ever used the Scan’n’Cut — that was a nightmare to use and the Maker just works). I didn’t want to leave it completely plain, so I added some colour and texture with the first coloured pencils that came to hand.

The background layer of the bunny and the panel on the card with came from my box of experiments. The tag designs don’t have a solid background layer so I just glued the layers to the coloured card and carefully cut around it.

I don’t often use ribbon, but the top of the tag needed a little something else and, for once, a bow was the answer. A few half pearls, including a tiny black one behind the bunny’s eye, finished it off nicely.

  1. Such a cute card! I’m sure she loved it. I use my Scan N Cut all the time. I had an older Circuit and switched to the Scan N Cut. I know they are improving these machines all the time.
