Here is a new Easter Sunday I card made using our Easter Sample Dot-to-Dot on the inside. This cute bunny card is fairly simple and uses every day craft items to create. I am grateful to Linda’s Stampin Loft for the card inspiration. You can make your own using the artwork file on the right and free the puzzle.
- 1 sheet of patterned cardstock for the basket
- 2 sheets of lighter cardstock for the basket weave pieces
- 1 piece of 4½” x 6″ colored cardstock for front of card
- Clip art sheets with eggs and bunny shapes printed on white cardstock
- 1 8½” x 11″ sheet of heavy white cardstock for base
- 1 piece of old label backing sheet to keep glue from sticking where it shouldn’t
- Greatest Dot-to-Dot Sample Newspaper Puzzle for Easter Sunday
Tools I used:
- Watercolor Pencils
- Double-sided Tape
- Paper Cutter
- Weave embossing folder (this is not required)
- Cut 8½” x 11″ sheet of heavy white cardstock down to 6½” x 10″. Score cardstock in half to make card 5″ x 6½”.
- Cut colored cardstock for front of card (top half) 4½” x 6”.
Print out the two pdf clip art files from above.
- Bunny Ears – inside (pink)
- Bunny Nose – heart (pink)
- Bunny Feet – all (pink)
- Bunny Eyes – (black)
- Bunny Cheeks – (grey)
- Bunny Bottom – (grey)
- Bunny Tail – all (grey)
- Eggs – (any colors)
- Banner – your choice (yellow)
Cut out everything as you follow the direction below.
Additional tricks I use to get dimension.
- I use two or three water color pencils in different shades of the same color. I use the darkest color near the lines and the lightest in the middle of the image.
- I drag a waterbrush from the darkest color to the lightest color, keeping the brush damp, not soaked.
- I color past the images so when I cut them out they don’t have a white edge.
- I use Tim Holtz Distress inks on the edge of the cardstock and puzzle.
- I use the Mcgill Paper Blossom Tool Kit to shape the flower pieces into a tail.
- I lightly sprayed the paper I embossed with water first. It gives a better impression.
