The stages to develop this card went like this:
The sketch layout that I turned around and altered dimensions to fit my 4.5" x 8" base card:
This is Serendipity Sketch January 2018 by Miyuchi.
The sketch was turned to the left. The title was replaced with the Christian fish symbol and I placed the Happy Easter title within the cocoa brown base behind the bunny. What got to be the bottom circle shape element was removed due to size already used for the papers that I wanted to showcase like the floral edge of a designer patterned paper from The Paper Studio that was given a scalloped edge to follow the flowers in the print, so that is another example of how I changed the sketch to make it work with my chosen colors and selected papers.
Another sketch element the was moved and flipped around was shown in the sketch as a white ribbon tail paper element. For my card that element is the lavender card stock behind the bunny. Instead of stitching or drawing 2 black circle lines on the card front, I did an oval with brown dash or stitching kind of lines surrounded by black squiggly lines on each side with inserts of 2 butterflies to keep the oval curved lines leading to the super sweet rabbit.
I loved how this came together! This card will be given to my great aunt who lives across the street from us. We enjoy having both wild and domestic rabbits in our neighborhood. About 2 years ago when someone moved from town, he released his domestic rabbits to roam free instead of taking them with him or finding new owners. There were 12. The most I've seen of the large domestic rabbits has been 4 and lately through the fall and winter, I've only seen 1. So I felt it was a very appropriate theme for my aunt's Easter card to include a rabbit.
The butterflies were a free download from Paper Wishes website at least 3-4 years ago that got buried amongst other papers and survived our move 1 1/2 years ago and a house fire 6 months ago! The solid color cardstock papers are from Colorbok. And again the "Spring Rabbit" image is from A Day For Daisies.
The inside panel was kept simple with more lavender cardstock, another foam heart, and a printed Easter message that part of it was outlined with a dark purple marker.
LOVE this card! I also love Easter because of the hope and promise it symbolizes for believers.
Until next project, Becca
