I wanted to try to make some quick and easy Easter cards, as this holiday (like most) has totally snuck up on me. Luckily I saw a cute CAS (clean and simple) card with a similar look on google images or Pinterest and thought I could re-create it in my own way.
I used some kraft card stock and clear embossing powder with this fabulous woodgrain stamp from the Lawn Fawn Woodgrain Backdrop Set to create a textured background like the card is section of a tree trunk. I then used the 12th largest circle from the Diemond Dies Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circle Nesting Die Set to cut out a hole. On the kraft card base, I used a little black ink with a finger dauber and darkened up the area where the hole would be positioned. I added some foam adhesive to the wood grained piece to create some dimension.
Then I assembed the rear of the bunny. I used the 10th largest circle from the Diemond Dies Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circle Nesting Die Set to cut out the rump and the smallest oval die from the Diemond Dies Oval Nesting Die Set to cut out two feet. Then I used some Fiskars hand punches to cut out paw pads and some clouds to create a bunny tail. I inked the edges of all the pieces with some pink ink.

A little more glue and foam adhesive for assembly and voila, we have cute bunny hopping into a hole! To add a little softness, I decided to add a little pink satin ribbon and a bow to the lower part of the card. For the inside sentiment, I used the sentiment from the Stamping Bella Valerie Bunny stamp set that says “Hoppy Easter”.
The following is a process video showing how I put the whole card together:

Very clever card for Easter! Love all the dimension, yet it still does have a CAS feel to it! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
Thanks Lin! Yep, I guess I could have left the bow off to keep it even more CAS, and I could have make the background white rather than craft, but…well, there was less planning and more just crafty playing with this card. 🙂 tf stopping by! Hugs, Kristina
