Playing in the Rain, Bee Mine, Friendship or Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun layout to share with you. I found it here. I didn't see any measurements so here's how I made it.

I like to use a folded half-sheet of Basic White for my cards because the colored paper is a lot more expensive, this way I can get 4 cards from one sheet of colored paper as opposed to 2. With the cost of paper going up all of the time it's the better way for me to go. Plus I don't have to add a Basic White piece to the insides for writing on. For me it's a win/win.

My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Balmy Blue for the top layer. I textured that piece using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued it to the front of the card.

Using a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Bee Mine" 12" x 12" package I cut three pieces that measured 1" x 3".  I glued these strips on in a zig zag sort of way. If you remove the bunny it looks like a backwards "Z".

The bunny is from the "Playing in the Rain" set and was stamped using black Memento ink. I colored in the shirt using my Blender Pen and my Sweet Sorbet ink pad. The ears and nose were colored in using the light Powder Pink Blends pen. Dimensionals were added to the back of the bunny and it was set in place on the front of the card.

The words are from the same "Playing in the Rain" set and were stamped using Balmy Blue ink. I cut them out using the 4th largest circle in the "Stylish Shapes" set. I see the piece in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. I did add a tiny dot of glue under the bunnies foot so it stayed down.

I added some flowers from the "Loose Daisy" embellishments package. They were randomly glued in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

This was a fun and quick card to make. I've never made this type of layout before. It was different and I do like it.

I'm not sure what category this card would go in, it could fit under several of them, friendship, birthday, for an accomplishment, for other types of good news.... What do you think?

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's friendship or birthday card,
