I love the colors of Easter- the fresh pastels, and the soft creams and whites. I rarely have occasion to send an Easter card, but I have plenty of reasons to send someone a “Some Bunny Loves You” card, using this seasonal color palette. This card was really simple to put together, so I made several in the same sitting. Send these precious cards out to celebrate Easter, spring or any other occasion where you want to share some love! I thought they would be darling gender neutral baby cards. I have several expecting friends right now.
Easter Card Tutorial Supplies:
- Darice Easter Theme Craft Die Set
- Polka Dot Pop Cards and Envelopes
- Pastel Cardstock (Green, Yellow, White and Blue)
- Darice Cardstock
- Darice Die Cut Nesting Squares
- Picture Punch Daisy Shape Punch
- Daricde Adhesive Pearls
- Washi Tape (Or other low tack tape)
The first technique I want to show you for this Easter card tutorial is one that I use a lot. You can create frames and window openings with any die by being a little creative, and with the help of some low tack (washi) tape.
Position the dies how you like. In this case, I create a frame by nesting two square dies. Use tape to hold the dies in place. The tape will not effect the cut.
Using white cardstock, cut the bunny shapeout. Then, cut a square from blue cardstock using the larger size of the nested square dies. This will ensure that the background fits perfectly in the kraft frame you created.
Trim a section of green cardstock to fit the inside square of the frame. Using scissors make a fringed edge to mimic grass.
Adhere your bunny behind the grass. (It would be cute to add some pink chalk to the bunny cheeks and ears, and maybe a brad for an eye! I just left mine really plain and graphic.)
Embellishments can be added to your bunny as desired. I added some small punched flowers with pearl centers.
Adhere your finished frame to the kraft/white polka dot card base. Add computer generated, stamped, or hand written sentiment strip to the bottom of the Easter card.
Repeat for as many cards as you like! And there you have a card “some bunny” is bound to love. Fill with your favorite candy or treats and wish someone a Happy Spring!
