Ok, I have one more transformation to share with you using the miraculous Diemond Dies Teddy Bear Buildable Die Set. I made this sweet flop eared bunny with just a few modifications and a bit of doodling to make this fun spring time sunny Easter card.
This time I die cut all the pieces of the Diemond Dies Teddy Bear Buildable Die Set from kraft and white (if I had a pale pink card stock, I could have used that but since I didn’t I used white and blended on Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar) card stock, except the nose, and ears. Also, I die cut the muzzle piece an extra 4 times, twice with kraft and twice with the pink card stock, to form the floppy ears. Obviously I offset the pink inside the kraft and hand fussy cut the ends and tucked behind the head the bases of the ears to create the look of full floppy rabbit ears. For the eyes, I used the medium and small eye die cut ovals from the set, but used an ordinary 1/4″ hole punch to make the pupils. For the nose, I actually used the largest eye die cut oval with a bit of black card stock. I also doodled in eye brows, a little critter mouth and buck teeth to complete the bunny’s face. As with all the die cut animals, I also used my go-to Uniball Signo White Gel Pen to add highlights to brighten up the eyes, nose and paw pads of the bunny.
In order for me to make the background image from the Doodlebug Easter Express 6 x 6 Paper Pad work as a background for this card, I had to cover up the small train filled with critters in the foreground of the image (or it would look like the train was running into the bunny’s bum – hohoho). To do that, I took a scrap of pale green card stock from my scrap box, die cut a little grass using one of the dies from the MFT Grassy Hills Die Set, and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn. For a bit of something special, I also used a dimensional bow from an old Jolee’s Boutique Bunny Ears Sticker Set and gave this Easter Bunny a bow tie. 🙂
