More Easter Bunny Cards with Eight Great Greetings

For my workshop this past weekend we did a little 4" x 4" card with the cute little bunny from the brand-new set Eight Great Greetings from the Occasions Mini Catalog (April 1-June June 30, 2009). This is a good size card to use for smaller size images and also when you want to tuck a small card into a gift, basket or even use as a gift tag.

The bunny was stamped on Whisper White in Basic Black, colored with Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pens then punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. It was then layered on the Scallop Circle from the Sizzix Pennant Die (these are larger circles than the Scallop Circle Punch). A piece of Designer Paper was added to the lower half of the card, the sentiment stamped and a ribbon tie added. A strip of colored cardstock was scalloped with the Scallop Border Punch and added to the inside bottom of the card to add some color there too. Viola! Done! Very quick and easy! A perfect little note to tuck into an Easter basket!

The Almost Amethyst Scallop card uses the delicate stripe from the Afternoon Tea DSP and the sublime Certainly Celery polytwill ribbon that was a free Sale-A-Bration selection with purchase. I hope you got some of it because it has the most amazing feel and is very easy to work with. Can you tell I love it? lol!

The Saffron Scallop bunny card uses the Saffron print Designer Paper from the Delicate Dots Sale-A-Bration DSP and the the Saffron Striped 5/8" grosgrain ribbon from the Spring/Summer Catalog. A card I saw made by Angie Juda gave me the inspiration for these cards.

This versatile set, Eight Great Greetings (#113822, set of 8, $27.95), has eight stamps with sentiment included that would be perfect not only for standard cards but especially for the smaller size cards, whether square or rectangle. The greetings cover birthday, Easter, thanks, Dad, wedding, congrats, shower and a humorous one that could also be used for Mother's Day. That's a lot of occasions!

Thanks for dropping in to visit! Hope you have a great day and you get some time to have fun stampin'!
