Easter Bunny

IMG_4324


Hard to believe that Easter is already here!  I hope that spring has found you, it is playing peek-a-boo here.   Warm one day and freezing the next, I'm sure that mother nature is just gearing up for one awesome summer--right?

A quick card today using the new bunny die from Lil' Inker and some patterned paper from Lawn Fawn. I still have a few more things to finish up for Easter, there hasn't been a lot of time in my craft room this week with Ben home.  We are packing him up again as he leaves for his summer co-op/job on Sunday. He is driving so you know I am not going to settle until I know he arrived. Hopefully we are going to visit him next weekend.  Still can't believe how fast my kids have grown up!

I felt the sentiment was too big to put on the front of the card, so I stamped it inside.  That is not the norm for me, I usually leave the inside of my cards blank.  That way I can write whatever I want inside. Do you stamp a sentiment on the inside of your cards?

That bunny looks great with the LID stitching. Love how you kept to the simple color combo. Happy Spring and happy Easter.

Super cute bunny. Happy Easter!

LeAnne said...

Love this...the bright green and white are so fresh together. I usually DO put a sentiment on the inside, unless it is just a "thinking of you" or notecard-type card! Have a blessed Easter!

Love that crisp, fresh, spring-like green and white, Tracey ... fabulous! I too rarely add an inside sentiment! Easter Blessings to you and yours, my friend! Anita :)

Wonderful card!!

Cathy Weber said...

Ohh...I really like that bunny with the green and white combo Tracey! Good idea to leave the sentiment on the inside...sometimes I get a card all done and can't figure out where the sentiment will fit and feel like I HAVE to have one on the front!

Super cute, Tracey! Really love the monochromatic palette and the combination of stripes and polka dots! Plus, that bunny is simply darling!

The pops of green and that sweet bunny in his finery are perfectly Spring. I love the stitched edges on such a sweet design. The vertical green border is an awesome touch. I tend to leave the cards blank. I'm usually out of ideas when finished the outside ;) Happy Easter!!

So cute!! Happy Easter!!

Barb Ghig said...

Julia Aston said...

what a great bunny card Tracey! Don't you just love this stitched die?!! so fun in the green!

Maria said...

A beautiful card, Tracey! Love the green and the sweet little bunny! Safe travels for your son! Mine lives 2 hr. away and I always call him about when he should arrive back to his place. We mothers are always thinking of them!:-)And, yes, I usually do stamp a sentiment inside the card! Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

Greta said...

Happy Easter, Tracey! I just love this darling card--really "need" the bunny die! I usually leave the inside blank until I'm ready to send the card & often I just write on the inside & don't stamp a sentiment. I have trouble adding sentiments to the front--something I have to work on.

Sharron said...

The bright green is such a fresh, happy color--love it! And the bunny is so adorable. Can't believe I didn't order it!! Hope all went well with Ben's trip and that you had a happy Easter.

Michelle said...

Gorgeous card Tracey, I love the green and white together. Wishing you and your family a very happy Easter x

Nice choice to use the arched frame for an Easter card ... reminds me of church. Beautiful! I usually don't stamp on the inside, but I always grab several misc. shapes from my pile and either write on them or use them to embellish. By the time I need the card I'm usually in a rush and don't feel I have time to get any stamp sets out : )

Your bunny, nestled on his green polka-dot background, is such a delightful image of Spring and Easter. Gorgeous! I'm in awe of how you continually transform simple to stunning!!
