Directions for Base
1. Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Perfect Plum cardstock and fold in half. This is your base.
2. Cut (2) 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces of Whisper White Card… (1) is for layering inside your card and the (1) is for layering on top of your card.
3. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Pistachio Pudding Cardstock and tear it to size.
Tip: You want to cut your Pistachio Pudding cardstock a bit long so that you can size it on your card and hand tear it. If its too short… you will not enjoy the tearing process.
4. Using your Big Shot and Embossing folder of choice to add texture to the Pistachio Pudding cardstock and then adhere it to the front of your card.
5. Cut a 4″ x 3/4″ strip if you want to stamp a greeting to pop up. The greeting I used is from a retired Stampin Up Stamp Set called Heaven Blessed.
Build a Bunny
1. Approx. 1/2″ down from the top of the Pistachio Pudding cardstock you’ll want to pop up his 1-3/4″ Circle Body.
2. Glue the small ovals inside the large ovals. Put one pop dot on the bottom end of each ear. On the other end add a bit of liquid glue. A bit!
Tip: The side that you put glue on sticks to the body and the popped up end of the ear sticks to the Pistachio Pudding cardstock.
Tip: Happy Bunny vs. Sad Bunny… if you don’t fan his ears out he may look a bit sad. Keep that in mind when selecting placement for his ears.
3. Add pop dots to the back of the 1-1/4″ circle for his head and center between ears and a bit over the body. I didn’t like any of my Pistachio Pudding cardstock showing in between his ears, head and body.
4. Cut a Small white oval in half and glue to Pistachio Pudding cardstock. This is his feet.
5. Glue just a bit of two 3/4″ circles together. This is your muzzle. I also glued a bit of pink under the circles so that it looked like a tongue and added a bit more color.
6. Add you eyes and nose.
Tip: I use tombow glue when adding little circles and things. I dot the glue on the card and then drop the circle on top. If you try to do it the other way you might have the circle stuck to you. Lol!
7. I couldn’t find my White Chalk Marker so I used a Silver Sharpie to add to his eyes.
8. I used a Basic Black Marker for this muzzle and feet.
9. The flower was punched out of Daffodil Delight Cardstock and I added a Jewel Rhinestone.
10. Lastly, I dotted a bit of Tombow Glue and adhered the cotton ball for his tail.
