Popping, Hoppin’ Bunnies

Having just discovered i-crafter dies, I had to try out their Box Pops, Oval Base and Easter Add-on die sets. The folded version fits in an A2 envelope.

I watched Lynda Kanase’s assembly video a few times before making the card. The box pop is a simple mechanism that could decorated for a variety of occasions. I watched this video to get ideas on how to use the Easter Add-on set.

I picked a sturdy polka dotted paper for the base and solid colored cardstock for the sentiments, baskets and grass. The eggs were cut from white scraps and colored with distress inks.

The die cutting and assembly took me about an hour the first time, and by cutting in large batches, later cards assembled even faster.

There are flowers and a unicorn add-ons for the Box Pop Oval base, but you could try using other die cuts as well.

Heart Hands

Having just discovered i-crafter dies, I had to try out their Heart Hands, Wiper Insert die set.

For this quick card I used a printed card base designed by April Comell from my stash. Because it is a heavy cardstock, I decorated with thin papers, but used a lightweight dark blue scrap of cardstock for the main wiper mechanism and a medium weight cardstock scrap for the hands.

I watched Lynda Kanase’s assembly video a few times before making the card. The mechanism is a simple one that could be used with other things that wave or move. The hand dies have slight embossing for fingernails that you could paint red for nail polish.

After deciding to make this a Valentine’s card, I used my favorite Karen Burniston die for “Happy Valentine’s Day” cut once in white and again in red and off set for the inside.  I used the “Love” sentiment die that is part of the Heart Hands set for the front of the card.

The lacy white trim is an older Joanna Sheen die used whole on the front and cut in half for inside the card.

As is my style, I stamped the back of the envelope with a BoBunny hearts stamp in a red ink to hint as to what is inside.
