Bunny Wreath

I'm back with a card for the latest challenge at Fusion!  Check out this fun sketch and beautiful inspiration photo:

I decided to create a fusion this time and was inspired by the flowers, the wreath, the colors and, of course, the sketch.


A year or so back, I stamped a whole heap of these adorable flowers and leaves from SugarPea Designs in many different SSS inks.  I die-cut them all and tucked them in with the stamps.  I've now made three different cards using these and having them pre-stamped and cut makes the job so much quicker!  The gingham paper is from MFT and adhered to a white card base.  I then used foam tape to adhere the angled panels on top.  The wreath was adhered with a mixture of liquid glue and foam tape.  A thanks sentiment finishes the card.




Thanks for visiting!  The design team have created some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out and come join us in the gallery.

I'm linking this card up to the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp and Retro Rubber (I've had these SPD sets since mid-2016).

I LOVE your spring wreath against the pretty green gingham, Karren! Thank you for sharing it with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week!

This is so striking, Karren, with that slash of colour behind the pretty flowers. I love it when I rediscover a stash of already stamped bits so that you I concentrate on the designing rather than the making of the elements. Yours has certainly worked out really well. Love it! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenges this time.

Wow beautiful design and just the flowers you have used with the recessed patterned paper. Looks brilliant Karren.

This is absolutely stunning! I love the slither of gingham paper, making the flowers pop even more. I like to stamp and cut my stamp sets in advance. I normally do it with new ones and it's fun to be able to just pull them out and make a few cards with minimal effort. Thanks for playing along at Retro Rubber. Claire DT

That wreath is truly lovely!! What a creative and perfect fusion!

Karen Davis said...

This is a very pretty card. I love the v-shaped colour insert, such a great contrast to the round wreath and soft flower shapes. Perfect!

Love the inset triangular gingham paper with the die cut flowers. The wreath is a perfect touch to this sweet CAS card. Thanks so much for sharing and playing along with Retro Rubber.

This is a beauty! I love how you took the bunny inspiration and turned it into a floral design and combined it with the sketch.
