Easter Bunny Frilly Card – Adding Tons of Layers & Texture –

Some of my favorite seasonal die cuts and stamps are Easter / Spring themed. What better season to play with textures, shabby chic layers and cute die cuts? Today I’m sharing a very layered and textured Easter card using some pretty dies and some new supplies I tried out for the first time.

Supplies:
Graciellie Design | Happy Easter Digital Stamp Set
Dies | Spellbinders: Rose Creations, Gold Elements One / Poppystamps: Chocolate Bunny / Cheery Lynn Designs: English Party Doily
Ink | Colorbox Mixed Media Inx in Chiffon
Embellishments | Eyelet Outlet: Vintage Washi Tape, 12mm Jewel Bling – Clear Edge, Swirl Bling -Jewel Champagne / May Arts Ribbon: 4 Millimeter Pearlized String Beads Ribbon / Marion Smith Designs: White pearl stamens / SU: Linen thread
Finishes | DecoArt: Snow-Tex / Shimmerz Spray Sparkle
Miscelaneous | Beige, White & Pink cardstock, permanent clear glue (uhu), lace, pink gross grain ribbon, sponge dauber, palette knife, shelf liner.
This card started out with the need to use some beautiful old die cuts I hadn’t taken out in a while. I created a detailed square using a corner die, die cutting with it twice to cover the squared layer completely. After that, I started adding layer upon layer, distressing the edges and inking them with my new favorite ink: Mix’d Media Inx by Donna Salazar for Colorbox -which I think works perfect for this kind of project-. 
I also made some pretty flowers with another product by Donna Salazar, her beautiful Rose Creations Dies. I shaped them using a basic technique from my Handmade Flowers 1 video tutorial. I alternated the flowers’ layers with beige and pink and inked the petals with the same soft pink ink used before. I also decided to add a layer of grip liner material on the flowers, using the same die to cut it.

Of course, what is a shabby chic card without embellishments? I added DIY banners made with vintage themed washi tape, I added stunning jewels to the center of the flowers, ribbon, pearl stamens, string beads, linen thread, tulle, ribbon and lace. But I think the little bunny die cut gives the card a unique touch after I applied some DecoArt Snow-Tex paste to make it textured!

Finally I added an Easter sentiment from the new digital stamp set Happy Easter.
