Good night bunny

I made this card some time ago and didn’t end up giving it away at all – do you get cards like that? I just loved it so much, I have it standing on my craft room window sill. I adore the Holly Pond Hill artwork, love cards with lace, love rabbits… OK you get the drift, I loved all the ingredients in this one!

So the main image comes from the Holly Pond Hill CD. There are so many beautiful ideas on there that can suit all ages. This rabbit saying its prayers is just delightful I think.

The first thing I wanted to solve when I made this card (before the days when I had die cut lace borders to call on!) was how to get some pretty lace behind the main image. This I have achieved by using a lace handkerchief. Take a panel of cream/white,whatever you choose, card measuring 5 1/2” x 7 1/2” now take a standard lace hanky and gather the middle together – in the end I chopped out a bit of the middle to give a less bumpy effect – and arrange it so that it goes neatly around the panel. I used lots of double sided tape, glue gel and anything else that came to hand kicking it into neat submission!

The main image is mounted onto some lilac card to give it a bit of strength and then I added that using Pinflair as the lumps and bumps are easily coped with when you use a 3D type glue!

The backing paper comes on the CD and I cut a few bunnies from the leftover strip to decoupage those – ta–da… card finished!

    Hi Joanna. What a lovely card, I’m not surprised you kept it. Lots of ooh’s when I saw it. I have the Holly Pond CDs and love them. Who doesn’t love pretty rabbits ?
    Enjoy your day, damp and dreary here in Brum. x


    The Rabbit saying its Prayers is lovely. I might just buy the CD if it’s still available. i have two wee great-nieces who would probably love this!
