Grandchildren's Easter Cards - from Sabrina! #2

Since Ella is going to be two in June, I made the colors for her card brighter and as 'little girly' as I could get. I also made variations of this card for my Grand-dughters Saleen (7, in Phoenix) and Claire (3, in Boise).

.
Even though the little store I used the working space to make these cards didn't have Spellbinders, they did have a Cuttlebug with a bunch of black embossing plates (not folders) . I'm used to Cuttlebug folders and did find one lonely Cuttlebug folder with the flower pattern you see used on the pink background. After embossing it, I took a white ink pad and gently rubbed it over the embossing to make them pop out.

The stamp you see being used here is one of Penny Black's. I love her animal sketches/stamps! They are so sweet and full of character. Now, when coloring in stamps, I'm used to borrowing Dana's Copics. However, in this instance I had to use what was available in the workspace at the store. They have Tombows . This was different for me, especially considering that they didn't have any blenders to use, and they were all sold out of them. But I believe that the three bunnies turned out rather well. And this card I might even say is now added to my favorites list.

We are still waiting to see when Taylor will get his card, as it still hasn't arrived at his home. At five (6 in August) a boy may even wonder if Grandma forgot; the poor boy. As soon as it arrives and I get the photo of his cute card, I'll post it for you to see.

Thanks for joining me again today.
