Sometimes a card idea hits you when you are in the middle of making a different card – and everything stops. You can hear the breaks screech and the tires slide as the car comes to a rapid and complete standstill. That’s what happened when I sat down with hot air balloons and a “love is in the air” sentiment to make this sweet Valentine’s Day card:
- Fable Friends. Although the sweet animals and adorable sayings in Fable Friends are designed for a lovely Spring-themed or Easter project, I think this sweet, sweet bunny is perfect for Valentine’s Day – you can almost see the heart he’s not holding in his hands. I thought the sailor squirrel would be the first animal I played with, but I couldn’t resist the charms of this bunny. Here are the sentiments and images in Fable Friends stamp set:How sweet are these guys? Had you seen them in the Occasions Catalog yet?
- An Unexpected Combination. When I set out to make this card (after I had switched from balloons to bunny), I knew I wanted to include the sweet bunny with hearts and a loving sentiment. As I reached for the Forever Lovely stamp set, I was certain the romantic sentiments, flowers and hearts would be too formal for the bunny. Boy, was I wrong!This gorgeous sentiment is perfectly sweet with the bunny – and the hearts that float from behind him add an adorable element and a little action to the card. I totally lifted that idea from this adorable card that Julie DiMatteo shared.
- A Little Touch of Color. There are so many ways to add color to the bunny – but you really don’t have to add a lot. Once the black ink dried, I used a Blender Pen to add soft colors – each of the three colors is represented on the bunny – the coat is Grapefruit Grove, the buttons are Lovely Lipstick, and his ears have a touch of Blushing Bride. It’s so easy to add a light layer of color with a Blender Pen and a stamp pad.
