Mother's Day at the Bunny Cottage

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

Happy May Day to you all! Can't believe that April 2021 is in the history books. Looking forward to all the warm weather that is coming our way. And to all the crops my hubby will be planting this year. I love getting produce from our summer gardens. He already has his lettuce, kale, basil, beans and peas started.  It's just a bit too early yet for tomatoes and peppers. He is hoping for another bountiful harvest just like last year. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz blog.  I used  the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Slimline die along with the Bunny Tree Cottage dies and I created a Mother's Day card. My next door neighbor has 2 little ones and this will go to her. Her little 3 year old loves to bake with Mommy so I thought this scene would be perfect for her.

Design Steps:
I started my card by cutting the Bunny Tree Cottage in different colors of cardstock. I cut 2 of the little bunnies and cut their outfits in blue and pink. My neighbor has a little boy and girl. Instead of the Mama bunny holding the pie, I put it in the hands of the small bunny. So she is presenting it to Mama for a Mother's Day gift.
Next I cut my background panel. I used the 2nd largest Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Slimline die and cut in white cardstock. I sponged tumbled glass distress and mowed lawn distress inks on the panel. I also used the Clouds Slimline die and cut in white cardstock then sponged it with tumbled glass distress ink.
I stamped my Mother's Day Sentiment in an indigo blue ink directly on the clouds. Used my MISTI tool for placement and just in case I needed to stamp sentiment again. But one inking worked fine. 
Now that the card elements are done I am ready to start assembling my outdoor scene. I attached the clouds with double sided tape. The tree and cottage door with glue dots, the grass tufts and mushrooms are attached with Ranger multi matte adhesive. The bunnies are attached with dimensional adhesive. I also cut a flower pot & tulip and put it in the hands of the little boy bunny.
To finish off my card, I cut a medium purple card base 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" and scored at 2 3/4" and attached the image panel to the base. I also added a couple of mushrooms at the tree base and front door to the cottage.
Well, that's it for me for this post. Have a great weekend and until next time.......God bless
