BUNNY STEP CARD

EASTER'S ON ITS WAY..... SO TODAY, AFTER SEEING THIS ON ANOTHER BLOG, BUT NOT HAVING A TUTORIAL, DECIDED TO TRY IT FOR MY SELF. I ALSO MADE 2 CARDS... AND NOW YOU CAN SEE WHY I AM NOT A CARD MAKER! JUST SO YOU ALL KNOW... I REALLY AM A BEGINNER AT ALL OF THIS STUFF... BUT I ONLY POST WHAT COMES OUT GOOD... I DELETE THE REST.. LOL.









SO, FOR THE BUNNY STEP CARD.... HERE IS THE FACE UP CLOSE. NOTICE THE PLACEMENT OF THE EYES AND CHEEKS/NOSE. THEY ARE OFF CENTER AND FACING RIGHT.



HERE HE IS ALL DONE. ISN'T HE ADORABLE!?!

HERE IS THE CARD ALL PUT TOGETHER. ONE SHOT OF IT STANDING AND ANOTHER OF IT FLAT.


HERE IS A SIDE VIEW TO SEE THE DIFFERENT STEPS IN THE CARD.

HERE IS A RUN DOWN OF THE MEASUREMENTS FOR THE CARD BASE.


1. CUT A PIECE OF PAPER INTO 6X12.


2. FOR THIS NEXT STEP IT DOESN'T MATTER WHICH SIDE YOU DO THIS TO, THE ONLY THING IT WILL DO WILL DETERMINE WHICH SIDE THE BUNNY SITS ON. TURN THE PAPER OVER AND MEASURE IN 2" FROM THE SIDE AND PUT A MARK AT THE TOP AND BOTTOM WITH A PENCIL.


3. NOW FROM THE TOP MEASURE DOWN 3" AND PUT A MARK AND MEASURE UP FROM THE BOTTOM 1" AND PUT A MARK. DO THIS ON THE SIDE WHERE YOU DID STEP #2. NOW WITH A PENCIL, DRAW A LINE FROM THE 3" MARK DOWN TO THE 1" MARK.


4. YOU NOW NEED TO MAKE A CUT ON THAT LINE. SO YOU ARE CUTTIING 2" IN FROM THE SIDE... 3" DOWN FROM THE TOP... AND 1" UP FROM THE BOTTOM.... SO YOU WILL HAVE NOT CUT ANYTHING OFF, ONLY MADE AN 8" SLIT IN YOUR PAPER. IF YOU LOOK AT THE PICTURE ABOVE OF THE SIDE VIEW.... THE SLIT IS WHERE THE BUNNY IS SITTING ON FOLDED IN HALF.


5. NOW YOU NEED TO SCORE YOUR PAPER. TURN YOUR PAPER LONG WAYS (HORIZONTAL) AND IGNORING THE 2" PIECE ON THE BOTTOM, YOU WILL SCORE AT THE 3" MARK, 6" MARK, 8" MARK, 10" MARK, AND 11" MARK. LEAVE YOUR PAPER AS IT IS AND MOVE ON TO STEP 6.


6. NOW SCORE THE SMALL BOTTOM 2" PIECE AT THE 6" MARK ONLY.


7. TURN YOUR PAPER VERTICAL, AND WHERE THE SLIT IS, SCORE ABOVE IT AND BELOW IT- SO YOU WILL BE SCORING THE 2" MARK WHERE YOU DIDN'T CUT.


8. NOW WATCH THE VIDEO TO LEARN HOW TO FOLD IT.... THATS TOO HARD TO TYPE.. LOL. BUT ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS MOUNTAIN AND VALLEY EVERY OTHER FOLD AND MAKE SURE YOU DO IT WHERE THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PAPER IS SHOWING :0)



BONUS CARD: THIS WAS DONE BY SPONGING YELLOW INK ON THE CARD. THEN I TOOK THE SIZZIX GRASS DIE AND USED THE NEGATIVE SPACE TO INK THE GRASS ON THE CARD IN GREEN. I USED THE POSITIVE TO MASK OVER THE GRASS IN ORDER TO STAMP THE FLOWER STEMS. I THEN USED LIGHT PURPLE AND PINK TO STAMP DIFFERENT FLOWERS ON THE STEMS. I STAMPED THE BUNNY ON A DIFFERENT PAPER, USED A BLENDER PEN WITH THE SAME INKS I USED ON THE FLOWERS AND COLORED PARTS OF HIM IN. THEN I CUT HIM OUT AND FOAM DOTTED HIM ON THE CARD. THE OUTSIDE SAYS, I LOVE EASTER AND THE INSIDE SAYS, ALMOST AS MUCH AS I LOVE YOU. THE STAMPS USED ON THESE CARDS ARE ALL FROM THE ANGEL COMPANY. THE INKS ARE SU & CTMH.


BONUS CARD 2. THIS WAS AN EASY CARD. I JUST INKED WITH YELLOW AND BLACK AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF THE CARD BASE LEAVING THE CENTER WHITE. I STAMPED THE BUNNY ON ANOTHER SHEET OF PAPER. COLORED THE FLOWERS AND GRASS WITH MY BLENDER PEN & INKS. MADE A MASK FOR THE BUNNY BY STAMPING THE SAME IMAGE AGAIN AND COVERING THE BUNNY, I TOOK YELLOW INK AND SPONGED IT OVER THE PAPER. I THEN USED A 3" OVAL PUNCH, CUT OUT THE IMAGE, INKED AROUND IN BLACK AND FOAM DOTTED THAT TO THE CARD. THE FINAL TOUCH WAS THE SENTIMENT... HAPPY EASTER!!





EVERYTHING FROM TODAY... HMMM, I STILL HAVE SOME EGGS LEFT OVER... WHAT'S NEXT????


ENJOY!!!
