Cardz 4 Galz Challenge # 63: Anything But Square Bunny Card {01.18.2018}

Hi! The current challenge for Cardz 4 Galz is Anything But Square. And, here is my card, which is a bunny!

Products I used for this card:
Tonic Essentials Buildables Betty Bunny Die Set
Lawn Fawn Hoppy Halloween
Lawn Fawn Eggstra Special Easter
Tonic Tangerine Machine
Tonic 12" Wide Base Craft Guillotine
Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen
Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
Distress Ink
Copic markers
Crystal Lacquer

I die cut out some colored cardstock using my Tonic Tangerine Machine and the Tonic Essentials Buildables Betty Bunny Die Set. This die set cuts out all the pieces. I used pink cardstock for the inside of the ears and the nose. I used a cream color for the bunny, black for the eyes, and white for the belly and teeth. I blended distress inks along all the edges to give some gradience to each piece. I also blended ink through some strategic holes on the die cuts for the paw prints and the tail poofs. I also gave the bunny some sweet pink cheeks with copic markers and swiped some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen over the nose, ears, belly, carrots, and egg. I also added Crystal Lacquer clear glue over the ears and nose, as you can see here.

Here is a close up of my egg that I gave to the little bunny. He needed something to hold with his little paw. I stamped out the egg from Lawn Fawn's Eggstra Special Easter stamp set, colored it with Copics, swiped on some glitter with the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen and then coated it with the Crystal Lacquer glue.

And, another embellishment are the carrots the bunny is also holding. I stamped out two carrots from Lawn Fawn's Hoppy Halloween stamp set. I colored them with Copics, swiped on more Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen and once again covered them with Crystal Lacquer clear glue.

I created this bunny into a card by making his body the card piece. Instead of just die cutting his body from a piece of cardstock, I scored and folded a piece of cardstock. I placed the body die over the folded cardstock and moved the die just high enough that the top of the body die was over the folded edge. Then, when I die cut it out, the folded piece didn't cut and I had a little bunny body shaped card. I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to adhere all the body parts, and some dimensional foam tape to give some parts dimension.

I really enjoyed making this bunny shaped card. It definitely isn't a square ... I look forward to the Anything But Square cards you will post in the Cardz 4 Galz Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
