It's a Girl Bunny Pocket Card

Easter themed craft products are so cute! I'm not quite ready to retire my darling little bunny set from Fun Stampers Journey until next year.   For today's project I incorporated the little bunny and other stamps onto a pocket card congratulating the arrival of a little baby girl.  Alexandra (my youngest) is still very attached to her lamb, bunny and other critters that she received when she was just an infant - you can see my inspiration for this card was directly inspired by her Ellie from Humphrey's Corner...

{Stamped image without a Solid Dark Border}

I stamped the bunny image using River Stone ink - it was quite dark at first so here's a tip.  If you don't want a very dark solid line around your stamped image, stamp the image on a rough piece of paper first then without reapplying ink stamp it onto your cardstock.   I used Copic markers and Spectrum Noir colored pencils to color my bunny image.  I wanted the card to have a soft, sketchy look so I worked with very light pinks and grays.

Once stamped and colored I used my Journey Circle dies to cut the image - that created that darling little perforated edge :)

Creating the balloons was super easy - That stamp set came with my Fun Stampers Journey Coach Kit.  It is called Birthday Sketch.  First partially stamp the ballon strings next to the bunny and then on a separate piece of cardstock stamp the balloons (don't forget to stamp on a rough piece of paper before you stamp on your cardstock if you don't want that dark solid line).  Fussy cut the balloons and adhere in place.

 I created the pocket card from a gorgeous die from Fun stampers Journey called Tagged Pocket Card and simply assembled all using a variety of products listed below.

In this picture you can see the shiny balloons, bunny nose and pads on her feet. I used Journey Glaze for that.  Here is a list of all the projects I used.  If you are interested in purchasing any of these products please visit my Fun Stampers Journey page and click on Catalog.
