Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.  
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease
  3. Using Memento Black ink pad.  Stamp 1 rabbit and 2 sets of the grouping of flowers. Color these images using Stampin’ Blends and die cut using coordinating dies.
  4. Using Basic Gray ink, Stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the 3 ⅜” x 2 ⅛” Basic White Cardstock.  (Be sure not to stamp it too high.  Stamp the rabbit above the sentiment, leaving just a small space.  The rabbit will go off the top edge of your cardstock… it’s okay, you’re stamping here for the puddle. Give the puddle a little color by shading a bit with a light pool party Stampin’ Blend.
  5. Adhere the colored and die cut rabbit onto this piece of cardstock covering the uncolored stamped image.  
  6. Adhere this Basic White Panel to the coordinating Basic Gray layer.
  7. Cut a 12” length of White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon. Using the brush end of a Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blend, color the length of ribbon.  Color again using a Pumpkin Pie light Stampin’ Blend.  (this will give it more of a Mango color).  Tie this ribbon around the stamped panel just able the sentiment.
  8. Fussy cut one of the larger flowers from one of the sets of die cut flowers and adhere with a mini dimensional to the rabbit’s hand.
  9. Adhere the small pieces of Designer Series Paper to their coordinating Basic Gray mats. 
  10. Adhere the 5 ¼” x 4” Basic White layer to the 5 ⅜” x 4 ⅛” Mango Melody layer. 
  11. Adhere the 4 small pieces of layered Designer Series Paper pieces to the Basic White Panel. Positioning these pieces with a slight gap in between, alternating the prints.
  12. Adhere these layers to the folded card base.
  13. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the stamped layers to the center of the card. Adhere the grouping of flowers to the lower right of the card.
  14. Stamp and decorate the inside of your card and the envelope. And it’s ready to send off to a special friend.
