Some Bunny Loves You

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Saturday in March. 

It's the first day of Spring today. And we welcomed it in Pittsburgh with blue, sunny skies. It's a bit cold but the temp is supposed to warm up to 57°. 

My hubby is busy cleaning out his garden beds and getting ready for the upcoming growing season. He already planted his lettuce and onions. We had a nice harvest of many vegetables last year and are looking forward to another this one.   

The tulips are pushing their way up through the ground. The deer are already on the hunt. He has been spraying them with an organic fertilizer that deters them from eating the tulips. But they found some under the oak trees in our front yard that weren't sprayed and they promptly ate them last night. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the new Bunny w/Butterfly die to create an Easter card for the two little ones that live next door to me. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
I started my card this week with my layout. I found this sketch #845 over on Splitcoaststampers and decided to use it. The layers would allow me to use designer paper to create a fun Spring card.
I looked through my designer papers and decided on these two coordinating patterns. I used the largest Stitched Square die for layer #2 and the largest Square die for layer # 3. For the background layer #1 I found this piece of light gray card patterned paper. I cut it to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and secured it to a white card base.
For layer #5 I used a piece of light purple cardstock and cut it to 3/4" x 3 1/2". I stamped my sentiment in a grape ink on this panel using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement. Sentiment is from Great Impressions Stamps. 
Next, I cut the bunny and butterfly images. I used colors that complimented my designer paper.
Now that all the card elements are prepared I am ready to start assembly. I secured the gray patterned paper to the card base first with double sided tape. Next, I attached layers 2, 3 and 4 secured to the card base. Added the sentiment strip with double sided tape.
I attached the bunny image using dimensional adhesive. I scattered a few enamel dots to finish off this card.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
