Happy Wednesday everyone! Thanks for joining me. Today I’m sharing a really fun interactive card featuring some goodies from Trinity Stamps. First off, these bunnies from the Dust Bunnies set last year are so cute and I was so excited to pull them back out to play! Second, it was so much fun to make them into an interactive card! I keep playing with it while it’s sitting on my desk.
To create my card, I started with the Dust Bunnies stamps, Slimline Woodsy background stamp and 4-bar card dies and played around with size and placement. Once I had an idea, I stamped the bunnies, colored them with some copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. Then I inked up a kraft panel with ground espresso and gathered twigs distress oxide inks. I spritzed it with water and after it was dry, stamped it with the Woodsy background stamp. Then I die cut that panel with the largest 4-bar card die. Next, I cut a piece of green cardstock with the same rectangle, inked it up with mowed lawn distress oxide and spritzed it too. I cut the top off with the grass die in the slimline great outdoors borders set and then cut the slider mechanism with the smallest track in the slimline twist and slide dies.
Moving along to assembly. I laid the grass panel on the woodgrain panel to use as a guide and adhered the piece that cut out the track. This was it’s green like the ground behind my bunny too. I added double-height foam squares to the back of the green panel and single layer foam to a piece of white cardstock smaller than my bunny. Pushing the foam squares on the white cardstock square through the slider track, I peeled off the liner paper and adhered my bunny to it. Then I removed the liner paper from the green panel and adhered it to the woodgrain background. I popped my other bunny in place and moved on to my sentiment.
I chose a sentiment from Springtime Sentiments, stamped it and die cut it with a banner from the 4-bar card die set. I added foam strips to the back and popped it in place, along with my second bunny. I thought the panel was lacking so I went digging and found butterflies in the Hello There set that I thought would go great. I stamped, colored and die cut those and popped them up with foam squares too.
For the background on my card base, I went with yellow so make it bright and cheerful. I inked up the edges with mustard seed distress oxide and spritzed it with water. Then I went back with Avery Elle white ink spray and once that was all dry, I die cut the panel with the A2 quilted cover die. I added this it a white card base with liquid glue and popped my scene up with foam strips.
For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the bunny’s eyes, glossy accents to their noses and unicorn Stickles to the butterflies. Then I found some clay carrots in my stash and added those on either side of the sentiment banner for an extra cute touch.
I know that was a lot of steps today but I promise it’s so worth it when your card is finished! It’s adorable and so fun to play with. And I can’t wait to share it with someone when it gets closer to Easter too!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
