God påske {Lili of the Valley}

Hi, everyone! We’ve reached March and the first of three glorious spring months. The weather’s getting warmer, and I took advantage big time by going on a hike for a couple of hours. About 10 kilometers and 14,000 steps, and it felt sooo good to get out. Before that, though, I colored and created a card using one of the images in the upcoming release from Lili of the Valley. Bunny Hugs is such a cute image, and I decided to make an Easter card. Easter cards aren’t really a thing in Norway, but I thought the big bunny was perfect for Easter.

I wanted a soft look to this, but at the same time, I also wanted to change things up a bit. I went with a darker skin tone than I normally do, and I really wanted a soft yellow bunny. I printed the image onto a piece of X-Press It blending card cut to 3×6″ for a mini slimline card. I adhered it to a card base I made from Lemon Tart card stock from Papertrey Ink with a 1/8″ border. I used the same color card stock to die cut “God påske” (Happy Easter in Norwegian) using a die from Papirdesign. I stacked three die cuts on top of each other and used a sparkle shimmer spray from Imagine to add lots of shimmer to the die cut. It has a really nice shimmer in real life, even though you can’t see it in the photo. To finish off the card I added a few sequins from the White Orchid sequin mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

Part of me can’t believe I used five different greens for this one, but that tiny green heart? They all fit in there!
