Tomorrow we will be getting 5-10 inches of snow and sleet with winds that will create blizzard conditions. This weather is typical for February, but not April! Most people here in Minnesota are sick of this wintery weather. So what better way to think spring than to make a fun spring card and send it to a friend who needs a little encouragement.
One of my favorite springtime stamps is "Kickin' Grass" by The Cat's Pajamas. Long-eared bunny is so cute and always makes me smile. I colored him with Zig Clean Color markers. To add a little shine and dimension, I colored the bunny's nose and added buds among the grass with Nuvo Drops and a gel pens.
This card is based on sketch by Your Next Stamp. I used YNS's "Soaring By..." stamp for the Hi! sentiment. The grass is die cut is also from YNS die cut. For some texture, the blue background cardstock was run through a Sizzix floral embossing folder and then sanded, plus twine was added to the base. The book Snow Rabbit, Spring Rabbit by Il Sung Na was an inspiration for this card.
