Valentine Bunnies

Hi guys

This evening I'm sharing a Valentine's Day card I made for a friend to give to his wife.  The design was pretty much left to me.  As it was a special card I made it A5 in size, instead of A6 which is the size I use for the majority of my cards.

Here it is...



I started by stamping the kissing bunnies and colouring them with ProMarkers before cutting them out with a stitched heart die.  I cut out a second heart and embossed it with a hearts embossing folder.  On a panel of deep red cardstock I stamped 'to my wonderful' in VersaMark and embossed in silver.  I also embossed 'Happy Valentine's Day' in silver onto a strip of vellum which was wrapped around the panel and secured on the reverse.  I stamped and embossed 'Wife' in silver and die cut with its co-ordinating die.  I adhered the panel flat to the card base and popped up the die cut sentiment on 3D foam as well as the bunnies heart over the embossed heart.  The photo below picks up the embossed hearts a little better.


To finish, I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the bow, pink hearts and the bunnies' tails.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Kiss Me Quick, Happy Anniversary, Sugar & Spice (and co-ordinating die), Call Cupid
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black; VersaMark
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Silver
  • Embossing Folder: We R Memory Keepers - Next Level 'Dotted'
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Heart Stax
  • Vellum and cardstock from stash
