The theme for this month is “congratulations,” and today’s card is welcoming a newborn to the family. It’s among the happiest occasions to celebrate, and I love making baby cards.

The stamp set I’m using is Best Bunny, which makes me giggle, since this is a blog “hop.”

Let’s name the bunny Hop Hop, because that’s what my daughter called her first stuffed bunny.

Best Bunny celebrates

 

I think Hop Hop has stolen my heart. Isn’t he adorable?

 The Best Bunny stamp set comes in a bundle with the Bunny Builder Punch, and I saved 10% buying it this way. Actually I was able to get it for FREE, because I used my August coupons. What a deal! I try to take advantage of all Stampin’ Up’s special offers.

I couldn’t wait to punch out the bunny from Thick Whisper White cardstock. Then, using a Sponge Dauber, I brushed the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I set Hop Hop aside while completing the card.

The layout for my card was inspired by this week’s Paper Players sketch. 

 

I created the top, angled section, by sponge daubing Pool Party ink on Whisper White cardstock through a stencil of Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Paper.

To define the angle, I used Nature’s Twine in Mint Macaron, fraying the ends, and attaching with Tear & Tape.

 

Hop Hop is my “any shape” in the sketch, and I used dimensionals to make him stand out.

The sentiment, “Hopping by to just say hi,” is in the Best Bunny stamp set, which I stamped in Crumb Cake ink. 

I glued the art piece to Mint Macaron cardstock, and glued both to a Pool Party card base.

The envelope is decorated with a 5 3/4 X 2/14″ piece of Subtles 6X6 Designer Series Paper, trimmed to fit. Using the flap as a template makes it easy to trim.

 

Thanks so much for hopping by. The supplies I used are listed below.
