Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden Card



One of my craft "resolutions" was to try to enter into more card challenges. So today I designed this card to enter into:






I didn't have time to film and edit a video this time so instead I'll list the steps in making this card:

  • pick out the papers you want to use
  • stamp your image with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black on Copic friendly paper
  • colour the image with Copic sketch markers that compliment your paper choices
  • fussy cut out your image
  • I used a 5 1/2" square pre-made card
  • cut your base layer of card stock at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
  • cut your patterned paper piece at 5 3/8 x 5 3/8"
  • using your metal dies cut out your desired shapes (I use a Cuttlebug machine)
  • Ink all your paper edges with Distress Ink in your choice of colour
  • glue everything onto your base layer but don't attach to the pre-made card yet
  • add your ribbon, I just tape it onto the back of the base layer
  • now glue your base to the pre-made card 
  • pop dot your image so it stands out and adds dimension
  • assemble the inside of your card
  • add any embellishments to the front and inside of your card
  • last step for me always is to add any thing "wet" like Stickles or glossy accents as since you are finished with your card they will have time to dry
