Pop it Ups Wednesday With Caz – Leaping Lucky

March 9, 2016

 

Hi Friends,

Its Caz here with a Leaping Lucky card.  I love to experiment with the Character dies from Karen Burniston! With a few snips here and there you can make them look a little different, like I have done with this card.

With spring around the corner I long for warmer days, bright happy flowers, and leaping bunnies!

Here on the inside you can see Leaping Lucky diving through the Rectangle Pull Card.

This is how I made the card :

step 1

1. Take piece of green cardstock measuring 12 x 6 and fold in half. Using the Rectangle Pull Card die, cut into card to create the main base.

step 2

2. Cut piece of patterned paper to measure 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ and stick to the right hand panel.

step 3

3. Karen Burniston has filmed a video to show you how to use the Pull Card Edges to cover the whole side but I wanted to add a slight border so I trimmed the piece of paper to height that I wanted and then marked in pencil either side of the pull card rectangle so I knew where to place the die.  Also marked on the left hand side so I knew where to trim it down.

step 3b

4. Position die where marks indicate and cut.  Use low-tack tape so the die does not move in the die cutting machine. Stick paper in place.

step 4

5. Cut pieces as shown above.  Two pink patterned feet, 2 white outline feet, 1 cloud and one circle.

step 5

6. Here you can see how I arrange the parts to create the rabbit’s back view. * (Since taking the photo I re-trimmed the shape as you’ll see in the project photo.)

step 6

7. Instead of using a black layer for Lucky’s head I cut both the layer and shadow in white card and used black fine tip pen to color the details.

step 7

8. Cut oval out from inside of the Rectangle Pull card and start decorating.  Here you can see the parts in place. I added grass and a strip of paper.

step 8

9. Use colored pencils to add details to the grass and Lucky’s rosy cheeks. Add die cut pieces for the eyes and nose. Use Lucky’s arms in an outstretched position so he looks like he’s leaping!

step 10

10. Lastly, a bit more decoration was needed for the inside right panel so I cut a piece of white card, embossed with clouds folder and added color with inks and a dauber. Die cut grass, basket and eggs, color with inks and a dauber; assemble.

Here is what you will need to make this card.

That’s it for today.  On this very wet and dreary day in the UK I hope to see signs of spring very soon and hope you do, too, wherever you are.  If not, why not make a bright, happy spring card yourself. It’s sure to cheer you up!
