Cricut Create : Making Easter Bunnies!!!
Gotta love crafting on a nice sunny (but cold) Sunday afternoon..
Took out the beast.. "Cricut Create" and laptop combo
I wanted to make some cute Easter critters for my two favorite nieces
I had many options to choose from.. I really love the "Create a Critter 1&2" cartridges
they got some super cute original critters that are quick and easy to make..
especially when you have fun with the color combos!
I started off using my "Creative Cards" cartridge (that I absolutely LOVE for card bases)
Since my Cricut Machine is only a 12"X6" this was as big as I could make the cards but it ended up working well.
These are the base pieces that I build up the bunny rabbits off of. I ended up making 12 and figured I'd make friends and family members happy by sending them a surprise Easter bunny in the mail!!
To the card bases I added a couple of the card options the cartridge had like the purple boarder around the inside opening of the card as well as the background designs for the inside of the card. This card is a 3 fold card. I also cut out a bunch of rabbits and decided to go with some purple rabbits and some beige-yellow rabbits. I also made a couple Easter baskets (yellow and purple) as well as grass using 3 different shades of green. I also cut out the words "Egg Hunt" and thought I could use that either on the front of the cards or on the inside.
I got tired of sitting in my craft area all day so when it came to gluing them together I did that sitting comfortably on my couch while watching a movie on Netflix :) heehee. I used my 2 way Stampin' Up glue pen. I really like the way it holds and doesn't make a mess. Any glue works though.
Below is what goes into making a Bunny.
Bottom layer : brown
Middle layer : pink
Top layer : beige-yellow
Final touch : cream-beige (used for his belly)
Sorry about the bright lime green cardstock background.. I was using it as scrap paper when gluing the baskets together.
