Cut a square of white card measuring 9.5cm x 9.5cm.

Stamp the bunny onto the right hand bottom corner of the piece of card and stamp a second one onto patchwork-patterned paper using black memento ink pad.

Colour the rabbit with a fawn alcohol maker and give a shadow with a grey alcohol marker.

Cut out the patchwork dress and stick onto the white rabbit with a red tape runner.

Use the Layer Perfect to create an even border with a bright pink card, then attach centrally to the card using the Layer Perfect to find the central position.

Stamp the greeting with black ink onto white card and repeat the previous step to create a perfect border all around the greeting.

(for Layer Perfect Video click here.)

Attach to the left side of the bunny rabbit using the 3D foam strips, cutting them to your chosen size.

Use the grey pen to draw over the black lines to make them stand out.

Attach a die cut flower to the corner, add a circle of hot melt glue and cover with micro beads whilst wet and hot.

Finally add one to the centre of the black flower. (see below for tips on creating brads with hot melt glue)

Create a row of three hot melt glue dots down the right hand side of the card and again add micro dots to them whilst hot and wet. Set aside to dry and cool.

Colour the flowers with a pink tombow pen.

Top Tip:

For making micro beaded gems.
Practice by making a small circles of glue.

1). Press to release glue.
2). Release trigger and lift the gun mid air.
3). Twirl gun around in circles to snap of any trails and the air will also help to form the glue into a perfect circle.

Have Fun Crafting!
