Fable Friends is timeless and just cute! When planning the cards for the Spring Stampin’ Spectacular I wanted to add an Easter card but then panicked that it might not suit everyone. Luckily the set also has other sentiments like “darling baby” and “Happy Spring”. The images are so appealing though you could probably go without a sentiment at all. The next big choice was which image to use – again I like them all! However, the bunny jumped out at me. Colouring is therapeutic and relaxing so it was great to add a simple card into the mix of the day.
Here is the recipe to make the card:
- Cut a piece Pool Party 14.3 cm by 10 cm.
- Cut a piece patterned paper, Pool Party with white stars, from Twinkle Twinkle pack 13.8 cm by 9.5 cm.
- Use your Big Shot to cut the 3rd largest Rectangle stitched die
- Use the Big Shot to cut a stitched label die.
- Take the stitched Whisper White rectangle and stamp the bunny in memento ink. Consider your placement so you’ll have room for your sentiment. Mine is 3.5 cm from the bottom.
- Make a mask from a post-it note for the bunny and stamp the grass in Pear Pizzazz ink. This allows you to vary the length of the grass. Remove the mask when you are done!
- Stamp the sentiment the sentiment(s) on the stitched label die in Pool Party ink.
- Colour the bunny using the Early Espresso watercolour pencil. Add a little colour around the edge and move it with the blender pen. This allows you to get a more gentle effect. You can add more colour on top if you would like a darker colour.
- Colour the inside of the ears with the Calypso Coral pencil and blend.
- The jacket is in Pacific point and the grass is filled in with the Lemon Lime Twist.
- Add some of the beautiful flowers from your pack of Gingham Gala sequins.
Assembling the card
- Mount the patterned paper on the Pool Party mount.
- Adhere the bunny centrally with dimensionals.
- Take a length of Baker’s Twine and thread it through the sentiment label on the right. Take it around the back of the Pool Party mount. Thread on piece through the label and tie a bow. You can adjust the position before you stick it all to the card base. I used Tear n Tape vertically as it is quite heavy and also holds the Baker’s twine in place.
