Happy Easter

April 9, 2020

Today’s fancy fold card is a floating front card.  This card was created using the instructions I purchased from Elizabeth Shannon.  I cut the pieces for the base of the card from Thick Whisper White card.  I cut pieces of the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (now retired) and used my Sponge Brayer to add Bermuda Bay ink to the paper.  The paper gets pretty wet when you add so much ink, so I waited for it to dry before attaching it to the card base and the floating panel for the bottom of the card front.  I stamped the bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the image using Light Bermuda Bay, Light Smoky Slate and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.  I also used the colour lifter to lighten the belly area of the bunny. I stamped the greeting from the Fable Friends stamp set beside the bunny using Bermuda Bay ink.  I punched a 3/4″ circle from the same Golden Honey Designer Series Paper, re-inserted into the punch to give it a slight oval shape and punched again (3/4″ Circle Punch is now retired).  I coloured the punched piece using the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend before attaching it to card front using dimensionals so that it looked like the bunny is holding an Easter Egg.  I attached the stamped panel to Bermuda Bay card and attached it to the card base using dimensionals.  Making sure to line up the floating panel with the card base, I attached the image panel to the floating panel also using dimensionals.  I didn’t add anything to the inside of the card so that I could write my message.  I had my grandchildren in mind when I created this card, so I created another card in Bermuda Bay ink, two using Flirty Flamingo ink and two using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I think they look great don’t you?  I hope my grandchildren love them too.

Bye for now,

Kris
