Hi friends! I’m back with a new card today that I have the great pleasure of sharing as a project tutorial on the Ranger Ink blog this week. Of course Easter is coming up this weekend, so it’s a perfect time to be showcasing this adorable rabbit die. He so reminds me of those molded chocolate rabbits I always liked to get my kids for their Easter baskets. Lots of happy memories there. Love that he can also be just a spring rabbit out in the garden, which is how I’ve used the little guy today.
The Cottontail rabbit is such a classic and timeless shape. It looks great just as a simple silhouette, but for this card, I decided to embellish him with lots of Distress inks and add accent details with Distress Crayons. And since this is a Bigz die, you can dress up your project with the texture of fabric or burlap, like I’ve done on the bow here.
The background of the card starts with a layer of watercolor cardstock inked in a soft palette of Milled Lavender and Victorian Velvet Distress ink, which was then softly stenciled in a woven pattern and stitched to my card base. The frame, die cut from kraft stock cardstock, was made with the Stacked Postage die set… a great go-to set for creating easy layers. I added some greenery from the Wildflower Stems #2 die set. The sentiment was made with the new Labels Alphanumeric dies.
I’ve got the full step-by-step project tutorial up on the Ranger Ink blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Hope all my friends and family who celebrate have a blessed Easter holiday! Thanks so much for stopping by!
