CASE-ing the Catty #225 – Easter

CTC Header

Happy Easter, stampin’ friends! I’m very pleased to have you here on your next stop in our CASEing the Catty Crew blog hop on this Easter Sunday. I hope you are having a fabulous Easter long weekend and I especially hope you’ve managed to get some craft time in. If you haven’t yet, then hopefully this hop will inspire you to sit down and create something.

This week we are CASEing Easter projects, and although I’ve used one of my favourite stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue, I’ve actually CASEd myself this week. While fiddling around on a commercial photography job I was working on, I shot this image.

Of course I then thought “hey, that would make a cute card!”

I’ve kept the idea of the bunny peeping up from one bottom corner and the flowers coming down from the top, with a centre element as well. I’ve also stuck to the simple colour palette of predominately pink and white.

Of course the star of the show is that adorable bunny from Fable Friends. I was so pleased to see this stamp set will be carried over into the new annual catalogue (coming in June!) as it’s not just perfect for Easter cards but also makes great baby cards and really, that bunny is just so adorable.

It took me a while to decide on the perfect flowers to go on this card and I finally settled on these cherry blossoms from Artfully Folded, one of the host sets in the Annual Catalogue. They are lovely and perfect for colouring (with Stamping’ Blends in this case) and I really must get some more ink on them.

In the centre I’ve used that divine stitched/embossed flower (I really don’t know what to call it, but I love it) from the Needlepoint Elements Framelit Dies, layered with a Pretty Label Punch in Blushing Bride and a couple of Garden Green leaves also from Needlepoint Elements.

I think this card is quite simple but the related elements tie it all in together nicely, which is a style I love in both card making and photography.
