Hi, crafty friends. I’m sharing a cute birthday card today, featuring a big cupcake and the cutest little bunny butt you ever did see.
When I first saw the Cupcake Critters stamp set from Streamside Studios, there was one image that stood out to me – the bunny butt. The pads of the bunny’s hind legs, a little bit of the body and the tail are all you see, and it sparked an idea.
I just knew this bunny had to be digging for treasure somewhere and decided to pair it with the carrot cupcake. I colored my image with Copics, stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Scripty Bday stamp set from Mama Elephant, before adding a fluffy tail from part of a ribbon from Papirdesign. I felt the soft pink worked with the rest of the image. I fussy cut around my colored piece leaving a thin white border and put it aside while I worked on the rest of the card.
Onto the card base, I stamped and white heat embossed the Happy Birthday background stamp from My Favorite Things, before ink blending in the center with a blender brush and Summer Splash ink, also from My Favorite Things.
Using a die from the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frames die set from My Favorite Things, I die cut 5 frames from white cardstock and stacked them for dimension. I covered a sheet of white cardstock with a double sided adhesive sheet from Altenew, before using the same frame die to die cut one more from that. I added it on top of my stacked frames, removed the release paper from the top and covered it with rock candy distress glitter from Ranger for a bit of sparkle.
I centered the frame on my card base and added my colored image in the center using foam tape. This card is fairly simple, and that tail totally steals the show.
Simple color palette for this one.
