This is another card that was inspired by a Falliday Fest challenge. I dusted off some older sets that have a special spot in my heart, but that had not been used in a while. The first one is Ann Egg-cellent Easter, which I masked while inking to omit the eggs he's juggling with and keeping only the bunny so that I could turn this sweet image into a baby card. Because he wears a best and bow tie, and because I stumbled unto some blue baby-themed papers while looking for stamps, this one naturally evolved into a baby boy card. I die-cut my own doily using the retired Darling Doily Thinlits die and thought to use the Bow punch to add a bow on top of my main image. As I was looking for a sentiment to finish off my creation, I found the baby announcement stamp in the Little Additions stamp set and decided to go with it. I was really surprised when I tried to punch it out with the Modern Label punch to discover it's too small! You can punch out the text, but it will not keep the frame, which I think it a lovely part of the design, so I bit the bullet and went old-school with fussy cutting!
The third stamp set I dusted off is All Scallops, a border set that I've always loved using and that retired way too fast for my liking back when it was in the catalogue. (Don't know that it lasted more than a year.) I wanted to watercolor my main image, so I inked the bunny with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and stamped the image on Shimmery White cardstock, which is a great alternative to watercolor paper, especially if you don't want to bother with StazOn ink.
