Check out part 2 of this post.
I have always wanted to make my very own design but have never dared to do it because I thought it would be hard and take up too much time (as well as the fear that it wouldn’t turn out to be that cute so why waste my time?). But today I put all that aside, and while I don’t think she turned out perfect. I still love it and I am proud of my creation. It wasn’t nearly as hard or as complicated as I thought it might be.
For this project I used George and Basic shapes cartridge but you don’t have to use that cartridge at all. You can use whichever Cricut cartridge that has basic shapes. I know their are a lot of them. For this bunny all you need is the circle, oval and heart shapes.
Easter Card in 5 Easy Steps
- For my bunny I cut out the following sizes for each of the parts.
- For the main body a heart at 3″
- For the ears: Two ovals one at 1.34″ and 1.34
- For the Feet: Two ovals one at 2.19″ and 1.06″ and .25 for the little circles on her feet
- For her face: for the tongue circle at .75″ the cheeks at 1.00″ and a heart nose at .75″
Just so you know, the finished size of this bunny is 6.5″ x 9″ making her perfect for either a fun Easter scrapbook album layout or for an Easter basket tag! But she is certainly not small but you could easily adjust the sizes of the shapes to make her smaller for a card or even a scrapbook layout if you wanted her smaller.
That’s it!…just those few simple cuts. Then you just need to layer them on top of each other. I did add a little big of faux stitching around her ears and feet and googly-eyes (you could just cut out little circles from cardstock maybe about the .25″ as well if you just wanted to have round eyes. Then added a bow to the top of her head. Super easy and wasn’t as scary as I had once thought! I may even try to do another one again. 😉
