It’s a hoppy time of year and this cute bunny card will be sure to bring tons of happiness to someone.  Whether it’s given to a young person or an adult it’s sure to bring many smiles this Easter season.  Now let’s get to work so we can start sharing this little bunny’s message with everyone.

Begin by cutting a card base from cardstock.  White cardstock was chosen for this card.  The base should measure 5” x 7” when score in half.  Also, use the paper trimmer to cut a cardstock layer (purple for this card) 4 ¾” x 6 ¾”.  Now, cut a piece of patterned paper (Spring Things by Doodlebug shown) that measures 4 ½” x 6”.  Attach the layers to the card base using a tape runner.

Cut a 1” x 7” strip from green cardstock and use a fringe cutter to cut it.  This will resemble the grass.  Attach this to the bottom of the card.

Now, cut three strips:  one ½” x 7” from cardstock, the second 3/8” x 6 ½ and the third ¼” x 6” from patterned paper.  The patterned paper strip shown is from the Spring Things by Doodlebug Collection.  You can also use a sticker from the collection you are using for this, but make sure to cut it to the correct size.

Now use a set of oval dies (for his ears) and circle dies (for his head and body)and your die cutting machine to create the bunny’s body from cardstock.  If you don’t have a circle die small enough for his tail and face you can use circle punches to achieve the correct size.

For his feet, cut an oval and then use your paper trimmer to cut it in half.

Using a ½” circle punch, punch 4 circles from white and black cardstock for his eyes.

Create his whiskers and the white of his eyes using a marker or colored pencil.

Assemble the bunny and attach him to the card.  Cut three egg shapes from patterned paper and cardstock using the smallest oval die in your set and attach them amongst the blades of grass on the card.

Finish the card by die cutting the ovals and add the sentiment using a stamp, stickers or die.   Also, add a sentiment to the inside of the card.

Have as much fun making this card as you do giving it.  It’s sure to bring everyone including yourself a smile or two.  Don’t let this little bunny just sit around pass him along for all to enjoy!
