Hello there crafty friends and BoBunny fans!
It’s a glorious day out. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I can’t help myself but to make cards with the wonderful Early Bird Collection. Not that you need a nice day out to enjoy Early Bird as it comes with it’s own sunshine! Such a cheerful color scheme, sweet images, and thoughtful, kind sentiments.
Of course I made two. How can you not when you get this collection out? I could makes cards all day!!
This is not a color combo I usually work with…but I knew it would look great because it was already there in the fun cheeky triangly patterned paper.
There’s a die cut doily layered in and a fun clock image from the Noteworthy collection. I used foam to pop up the focal image and added detail with a sticker, jewels, and a coordinating clip.
To get a little more mileage out of the clock die cut I snipped it in two and worked the second half under this sweet poofy chevron bow. Since I knew the pink and yellow already looked great together I went for a double layer of matting using the Double Dot cardstock.
I just love getting all the paper pretties out and mixing and matching them to my hearts content. So many possibilities!!!
This second card was a snap to put together. That lovely sentiment on the journal card was the inspiration…. I pulled the paper patterns to match.
It makes a card really special when you finish the inside with coordinating patterns. Don’t forget to include a spot to add a sentiment.
I finished off the bow with a Double Dot Brad. All you have to do is separate the prongs a bit then you can wrap the metal around to the back and secure.
Wishing all of you your own day full of sunshine and maybe a bit of crafting with your favorite BoBunny collection 🙂
