Hello Honey Bee friends! My card today features the House Builder Card Base with some new products from the awesome Spring Bliss release. The Easter bunnies have been having lots of fun getting all of the Itty Bitty Eggs hidden! LOL!
I began by creating my card base. Here are the steps:
- First I die cut two of the house shapes from the House Builder Card Base Honey Cuts. I used 80# Neenah for these pieces.
- I actually remembered to stamp the sentiment for the card inside before assembling it all! Haha! Sure makes it easier! I chose a sentiment from the adorable Hoppy Easter set and stamped it with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink. I stamped the egg border with the stamp from the Loads of Spring set in the same ink.
- Next I die cut blue patterned paper from the Playful Pastels paper pad with the house base die and adhered it to the card front with Bee Creative glue.
- I die cut the roof from a piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock. Then I stenciled on the shingles using the Square Shingles Background stencil, a Background Blender brush and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink. Then I adhered it to the card front.
Now it’s time to die cut all of the other elements for my cute little scene! I used the accessory dies from the House Builder Card base and die cut them with either 80# Neenah or colored/patterned paper and card stock from my stash. Note: I used the same paper from the Playful Pastels paper pad for the chimney and dormer. I used Copic markers to add color to the shrubs, steps, flowers, and pots. Then I assembled the windows and door and adhered them to the card.
I die cut the Itty Bitty Eggs from various colors of card stock from my scrap pile. I added sparkle to them all with a clear glitter pen and Glossy Accents to four of the eggs. I set them aside to dry.
Next I stamped the bunny and the bunny’s behind, also in the Loads of Spring set, with Copic safe ink and colored them with my markers. I used the coordinating Honey Cuts to die cut them. However! I decided to fussy cut them since none of the other images had a white border and I really like how it makes the bunny (and bunny behind) stand out!
I began planning the placement of all of the other images and adhered them with either foam squares or Bee Creative glue. Tip: When adhering the shrubbery I added the glue sparingly just along the bottom edge so that I could easily tuck in the eggs and flower stems. I had fun placing the eggs all around the house!
To join the card front to the back, I die cut the hinge that’s in the House Builder Card Base set from 80# Neenah. I added 1/8″ double-sided adhesive on either side of the scored line and attached each side of the card.
Here’s a look at the inside of the card. I love the fun sentiments in the Hoppy Easter set!
Did you notice the fluffy bunny tail? I have some tiny pompoms in my stash, but they are still too big. So I used some sharp scissors to trim it down and then stuck it on with Bee Creative glue. Cute, right?!!
How many eggs did you find? I hope I’ve inspired you to create a fun Easter themed card with these awesome products! Thank you for stopping by!
