Birth of the Easter Bunny

Who knew that the Easter bunny was hatched from an egg?! Well, at least that's how this vintage image depicts it.  I'm loving these "Vintage Easter" cardstock stickers from Karen Foster Designs. They make whipping up beautiful Easter cards a breeze.


A Couple Details:
  • I kept the color palette very neutral with just a touch of gold and violet. The Easter bunny is framed with a ring of flowers stamp from Glitz Design, popped up with foam tape and accented with Rock Candy Distress Stickles. I also used violet and gold metallic markers to add touches of colors to the floral frame.
  • These gold outline stickers were a recent purchase. I used Alcohol Inks to tone down the bright gold and antique them a bit. I also used a metallic marker to bring the accent color down to the bottom lacy border.
  • Creamy hydrangea blossoms with violet glass beads centers and hand-dyed seam binding form a little bouquet accent.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampin’ Up! ‘Naturals Ivory’
Patterned Paper:  My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Two ‘Blush’
Stamps: Glitz Design ‘Beautiful Dreamer’
Inks: Distress Ink ‘Old Paper’, ‘Frayed Burlap’; StazOn ‘Timber Brown’; American Crafts metallic marker ‘Violet’; EK Success Zig Writer ‘Gold’; Alcohol Ink ‘Mushroom’, ‘Silver Mixative’, ‘Caramel’, ‘Blending Solution’
Embellishments: Karen Foster Design cardstock stickers ‘Vintage Easter’; Prima flowers; Hug Snug seam binding; Starform outline stickers; velvet ribbon; glass beads; Distress Stickles ‘Rock Candy’
Tools:  Foam and felt ink blenders; heat gun; 3M foam tape; Wondertape; Glossy Accents; scallop scissors
