Bo Bunny Secret Garden Easter Card Tutorial

     I have a secret to share with you, and it's the gorgeous new Bo Bunny Secret Garden I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella!  Although it's a Spring/Easter collection, it's very versatile and could be used for so much more, with beautiful cool colors, like purples, pinks, blues, and greens. Here's the fun Easter card that I made for my son, with step by step instructions!

  Supplies:                                                                         Tools:
. Bo Bunny Secret Garden I Want It All Bundle                . Tim Holtz Water Brush Detailer
. 12 X 12 Collection Pack                                                   . Ink Blending Tool
. Ephemera                                                                          . Scissors      
. Brads                                                                                 . Heat Gun
. Bo Bunny Eggcellent Stamp                                             . Glue
. Bo Bunny Glitter Paste (Wasabi)                                      . Sewing Machine (Optional)
. Tim Holtz Stencil (Blossom)
. Distress Inks (Victorian Velvet, Shaded Lilac,
Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet,
Chipped Sapphire, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn)
. Ranger Sea Foam White Embossing Powder
. Ranger Clear Embossing Powder
. Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink
. Silver Marker
. Googly Eyes
. White Cardstock


1. Cut striped "Secret Garden Garland" paper at 4 1/4" X 5 3/4". Use blending tool to ink around the edges with Distress Ink (Wilted Violet). Cut green "Secret Garden Planted" paper at 3 3/4" X 5 1/2", and ink edges with Distress Ink (Mowed Lawn).

2. Use blending tool with Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet) to mask some blossoms with the back of the Tim Holtz (Blossom) Stencil.

3. You can see in this photo the part of the stencil that I used right below. Place your stencil over the ink again, and lightly apply some Glitter Paste (Wasabi). 

4. Gather your Distress Inks, white cardstock, Water Brush, scissors, and embossing ink and powders. Stamp and emboss the eggs, grass, bow tie, and bunny ears with clear embossing powder, and use the Water Brush and Distress Inks to color them in. 

5. Use scissors to fussy cut your images, and glue onto the green paper as shown. Use black ink to stamp the glasses onto the center egg, and glue some googly eyes to it. 

6. Glue the green paper onto the striped paper, and attach a strip of the blue ribbon from the Ephemera, towards the bottom of the green paper. Sew a zig zag along the bottom of the ribbon. I used my sewing machine, but you could also hand-stitch it, or not stitch it at all. 

7. Attach the striped brad to the left side of the ribbon, and glue down another egg to the right. Stamp the bunny feet with black ink, fussy cut, and glue to the bottom of the center egg, overlapping the ribbon. 

8. Add the alpha stickers from the 12 X 12 Collection Pack, to spell "Hoppy", and emboss "Easter" with white embossing powder onto the top right side of the green paper. Then just glue your striped and green papers to your card base, which I got from the Ephemera, by scoring the blue dotted cardstock in half to measure 4 1/2" X 6". The purple or pink cardstock would also look good! 

Hoppy Easter!
