Oh I love that series of Cadbury Easter egg commercials! All the animals with bunny ears at Easter Bunny try outs always puts a smile on my face each year and has me hunting for those cream-filled chocolate eggs in the stores.
For this Easter card, I used the Diemond Dies Teddy Bear Buildable Die Set and built the bear from kraft, black (nose and paw pads) and white (ears, muzzle, belly and eyes) card stock. For all the kraft pieces, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. For the white pieces that I wanted a hint of color on, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. Then for the inner ear white pieces that I blended on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar. Oh and I added a tiny bit of aqua card stock for the colored parts of the eyes.
For accents to the bear, I added white highlights with a Signo Uniball White Gel Pen, which I thought really brought the teddy to life. I also added slightly rosy cheeks with Pale Pink and Pink Prismacolor Colored Pencils. The piece de resistance are the fun bunny ears that are from a Jolee’s Boutique Bunny Ears sticker set I had in my stash from last spring.
The card front was made with scraps from the Doodlebug Lovebirds 6 x 6 paper pad (retired). I added a delicate crocheted ribbon for a “ground” for the bear to sit on. Then I added a speech bubble with “BWOK, BWOK BWOK” hand written on it for the faux chicken sounds that the bear would make at the try outs (LOL). Lastly I added pink gems to the speech bubble and flowing from the bears mouth to the speech bubble for extra sparkle.
Continuing with my desire to decorate the inside of cards, for the card liner I used more Doodlebug Lovebirds scraps as well as a little sentiment cut apart that says “Hippity Hoppity Easter’s On Its Way!” from the Doodlebug Easter Express 6 x 6 paper pad.
