It's Thursday and Pink Cat Studio is back with a new digi release! I'm excited to announce that the original Fairy Friends (used in my birthday blog hop card for Melissa) and more Enchanted Lily are now available in digi format!
I used the Bunny Fairy to make a set of spring/Easter cards. I've been spending way too much money lately on padded envelopes and shipping costs so I wanted these to be completely flat.
I started by cutting paper from Echo Park's Little Girl Collection to give bright pops of colour to the kraft base. I used the scalloped strips as well as the remaining concave sections. I cut contrasting straight pieces and sandwiched those between the scalloped background piece and the 'waves' in the foreground.
I stamped the Bunny Fairy four times and used a pencil to trace where I needed to cut around the ears. Then I die cut the circles and trimmed more closely around the ears. I created a mask for the bunny and stamped the Hero Arts Clouds in four different colours that would complement and contrast with the respective patterned papers.
Then I lightly shaded each Bunny Fairy and coloured the flowers with Copics to coordinate with the papers on each card. Before adhering the patterned paper sections and the bunny circles in place, I gauged the position of the sentiments and stamped those before attaching the patterned paper. Basically, I completed these cards from the bottom up.
After attaching the paper sections, I ever so slightly bent the card so the scallops would pop up and I could tuck the nestie under one of the scallops. Only the ears are 'free' which gives them a cute 'flapping in the wind' kind of look. Don't they make you smile? To finish, I corner chomped diagonal corners using both the 1/4" and 1/2" rounds. I realized after I finished these cards that they are a pretty close interpretation of one of the sketches for the Hero Arts April Contest, just flipped horizontally.
