Simple Easter bunny cards...

As I have mentioned before, I make a lot of cards that are sold at a local thrift store to help them raise money for their community outreach programs. Here are some of them that I made this year:

This little bunny is so cute. It's a really easy die set (unbranded) to put together. I added the little oval "rug" to ground him. The sentiment was cut from some foam board for dimension.

I used ProMarkers to color the pink on his ears and paws and the black on his buttons. I also added a little glitter pen to his buttons for a bit of sparkle.

For this card I used a felt bunny sticker that I had left over from last year. I see in this photo that the tail on this sticker isn't in quite the right place, but this one is already at the thrift store so I'm not able to fix that. I'm always amazed at what I see in photos that I don't notice IRL!

The scalloped border and sentiment were both cut from dies. The sentiment was cut out of both CS and foam board, which were glued together.

I have a bunny border die with a row of bunnies "hanging over the edge." I had used part of the border and had a couple of the bunnies left over, so I cut away one of them and put him on my sentiment panel. I think he looks so cute hanging there. The enamel dots are Nuvo Drops. They didn't turn out perfectly round (user error!), but I think that's ok. They're more in the shape of eggs, right?

Once again, I cut my sentiment from foam board. Since the foam board is stiff, it makes the sentiments so much easier to handle and glue down. They don't become misshapen the way they can if you cut them out of a regular foam sheet.

For the interiors of these cards, I either stamped an Easter sentiment or printed one from my computer.

I've already mailed the Easter cards that I regularly send to family in Europe, and today I will try to get the rest addressed and ready to mail to family here in the U.S. It will definitely be a strange Easter this year with no church service and no guests for Easter dinner. I haven't even bothered to get out my few Easter decorations that I usually display. How about you? Have you decorated your home for Easter?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

These are all adorable. Who doesn't love a cute bunny. That one peeking over the top is so cute.

Your Easter cards are so cute, Cheryl! The first one is very sweet. Nope, no decorating for me:( A strange Easter, for sure. Stay safe and stay healthy.

What wonderful Easter cards! That first little bunny is really just too cute! I doubt anyone will notice the tail not being where you wanted it. And I think the third card with the peeking bunny comes from a die that I used on cards for some of the grandchildren. Love all of the cards!

All of the cards are adorable - I like the one with the bunny peeking over the top of the sentiment - and love the rug you have the first bunny sitting on. I think I have most of my cards done for Easter - I have yet to take pictures but will before Easter. Hope you are staying safe, staying in and keeping busy. I've only had one or two days or what I call "in a funk". Have a great weekend.
