Sweet Baby Bunny!

I worked on this card at Come & Craft night on Friday. I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted to create, but it didn’t really turn out that close – a few of the elements survived but overall it’s a different card to the one I envisioned!

Baby Weve grown_Strawberry_Close_Magpiecreates Baby Weve Grown_Strawberry_MagpiecreatesIsn’t the little bunny from Baby We’ve Grown super cute? I’ve used him a couple of times lately.  On the greeting I shaded the BABY with a blender pen and a couple of colours of in to give it a bit of an ombre look.

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush Core-’dinations, Modern Medley DSP

Card & Envelope Box Set

The second project from my 1 Tool, 3 Projects class using the Envelope punch Board was this envelope box.  It’s the perfect size to hold 3 or 4 note cards and envelopes or it’s also perfect to hold a highly embellished card that won’t in a standard envelope.

Envelope Punch Board_Card Box_MagpiecreatesWe started with the Naturals Composition Specialty DSP, and because this paper looks so great all by itself we kept the rest of the embellishing pretty minimal.

Stamps: Peachy Keen

Easter Basket
