Hi Everyone, Mirella here! I am sure that you have seen the latest release already – do you love it as much as I do? I have a lot of new favourites, but the DIr-Tea Bunny is undoubtedly the winner in my eyes! The moment I had it in my craft room, I had to ink it up straight away, and I found it really tough to put it away, LOL!
For today’s card, I decided to opt for something cheerful, and what better way to cheer up your recipient than with a rainbow?
I used a very bold and bright rainbow patterned paper for my background, hence I opted to colour the bunny very delicately, so that it appears to be white – this way it stands out nicely, and doesn’t compete with the rainbow colour-wise. I created a little polaroid scene for my focal image, using the Frame and Fold die set. I also layered some grass in my scene, with the Scenic Border die set.
To make sure that the bunny has a chance to stand out more against the colourful background, I added a layer of vellum.
I fussy cut my image, since I didn’t want the white boarder around it, and I cut little slits around the bunny’s paws, so he could hold his little mug. I also paper pieced the mug with a rainbow image from the same paper pad that I used for the background – I think it turned out wonderfully!
For the sentiment, I used two phrases – “It’s rainbow season” comes from the Springtime Sentiments stamp set, and “Happy everything” is from A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything – both sets are so fantastic and versatile!
I am truly delighted with how this card turned out, do you like it, too?
Sending big rainbow-y hugs your way,
