Easter Bunny & Farm Fresh Eggs
by Kim Singdahlsen
I send a lot of Easter cards so I had the Spring Bunnies and the Farm Fresh Eggs in my basket of products for the next upcoming holiday that sits right on the corner of my craft desk just waiting to be used. I started with the eggs. I knew I wanted a "farm fresh" egg look so after I cut my eggs out of yellow and lavender, I splattered them with some dark brown, gold and white ink.
I tried a number of arrangements with the bunny (also the other bunny in the set which is sitting upright) but I had cut them out of white and it just wasn't right. The bunnies got lost on the wide space of the white card. So I decided some flowers would be perfect and the Flower Field Corner die was even more perfect because the flowers were already arranged in a way that fit with my two eggs!
After I added the flowers in white, the white bunny really got lost on the card, so I pulled out some tan felt. I love the way he pops both in texture and in color.
It still wasn't quite enough to fill the full card front so I downsized my space by adding a frame from the Double Scalloped Stitched Frames. Then I only needed to fill inside the frame.
I think the egg/flower/bunny fit perfectly and I was even more satisfied when I saw how nicely the Splendid Happy Easter sentiment fit into the arrangement. At the last minute I added the Grosgrain Bow. I like the soft look of it.
