Hello friends. Today, I’m sharing two sweet cards featuring the new Honey Bunnies from the Love Letters release. Both cards could be used for various occasions including Valentine’s day, Easter or new baby. I plan to send the heart-shaped card to my new grand baby niece to welcome her to the world!
I’m using the following Honey Bee Stamps products:
Slimline Sentiments: Eyelet die set
Some Bunny Loves You Slimline Card
My first card is a slimline card measuring 8-1/2″ wide X 3-1/2″ tall. I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors with Canson XL watercolor paper and created the yellow and pink blended background. Once the first coast was dry, I speckled more color over the watercolor wash as well as white paint for a splotchy look. I used the Slimline Sentiments: Eyelet die to die cut the card front. I cut additional eyelet edges using the die and my extra trimmed pieces and glued them (using Bee Creative Precision Glue) on the inside of the die cut edge to create a double eyelet edge. I love how it turned out. It makes a much wider frame/border for these sweet bunnies.
I stamped, colored and die cut the bunnies and the hearts. I used E53, E50, R20 and R00 Copic colors for the bunnies. For the hearts, I simply stamped on the extra watercolor trim pieces and die cut them. No coloring needed. I punched little holes by the bunnies hands using a tiny hole punch and strung hemp twine between the cuties. Next, I attached the bunnies and hearts to the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives .25 Foam Squares in white and the precision glue. The middle hearts have foam tabs behind them to make them stand out a bit like the bunnies.
I added some grass under the bunnies to ground them using Copics in YG67, YG63 and YG03. Lastly, I stamped, die cut and attached the phrase to the front using the Bee Creative Precision Glue. I attached the card front to a slimline card base made from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock using 3/8″ Scor-Tape to complete this card. I think it looks pretty sweet!
Love You Honey Bunny Heart Card
To make the scalloped heart card, I applied a soft rainbow of watercolor wash to the watercolor paper and die cut it in the heart shape once it was dry. I added faux stitches around the scalloped perimeter using a white gel pen.
I stamped, colored and die cut the bunny with wings image from the set. I wanted it to look more like a stuffed bunny for a baby card so I added many pink dots to this pink bunny for a fur texture using Copics in RV tones. I also die cut the “honey” script word from a patterned paper from the Spring Lullaby paper pad and Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock. I layered the top die script (3 layers, 1 pattern layer and 2 cut from white cardstock) to make it stand out a bit from the white border/shadow layer.
I attached the bunny using Scrapbook Adhesives .25 Foam Squares in white and glued the “honey” word, “love you” and “bunny” phrases using the Bee Creative Precision Glue. I attached sequins from the Spring Lullaby Sequin Mix to the front to finish the card front.
Because this card is being used as a baby card, I stamped the “Welcome” phrase from the Baby set to the inside as well as the scripted “honey bunny” from the Honey Bunnies stamp set to one heart cut from Neenah 80lb Solar White cardstock (cut two hearts from the white cardstock).
To finish the card base, I scored the top of one white heart and adhered it to another card base piece using Scor-Tape above the scored line. The watercolor heart card front was then adhered to the top white card base on the front for a finished look.
