Shine and Be Kind Cards for BoBunny


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.

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 🙂

  1. the beautiful die you have used makes a wonderful matting piece for the fun elements on these cards. Bo Bunny has neat papers, and you have used them in such lovely ways here. 🙂

  2. Since becoming a subscriber of your site, I have been taught about using doilies on cards. I am now the happy owner of half a dozen beautiful doily dies. All of them get used frequently! I so enjoy how your style can magically change a more modern designer paper collection into a semi-vintage collection…true paper artistry! Many thanks for sharing your talents and skills!
