Make your own tiny Prima flowers! - Some-bunny loves you!

Hey everyone, this is Kimberly and I am so excited to share this card with you!  Be sure to stop by my My Craft Spot, for more fun projects and vidoes!

I had so much fun making this card!  I made the yellow and pink flowers with my Gypsy and the Mothers Day Bouquet cartridge. The white flower I bought and is a tiny Prima flower. (Scroll down for a video tutorial)

Cut base card 11 x 4 1/4 and fold in half.  Trim 1/2 inch off the front side as shown in picture below:

I made a border on my gypsy using the George cartridge (rectangle and circles)  The rectangle is 5 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch.  Each little circle is 0.40 wide x 0.37 high on my Gypsy.  All are welded and the picture below shows the welded view.  Click HERE to see a video showing how to make borders with your Gypsy.

I inked the border and then glued it in between the base card and the blue piece of patterned cardstock.  I also added a strip of patterned cardstock (cream from Crate Paper) on the inside edge of the card.

I punched hoes and added eyelets.

The grass is cut from the Paper doll dress ups cartridge.  I sized it on my Gypsy so that it was 5.5 inches wide and cut 2.  

I ended up trimming the 2 pieces of grass to fit my card front. I inked everything on this card with vintage touch ink from Paper trey ink (the lighter color).

I used these thick pop it squares from Ranger to add dimension to the grass and the bunny.

When I trimmed the grass I offset it so the blades would be staggered.

Here is a side view showing the pop it square.

I tied Chocolate Bakers Twine through the two brads, looping it through twice and tied a tag on.

I like to put pop it squares behind my tags so that they stay where I want them!

I inked the bunny with the Vintage touch ink from Papertrey.

Then I layered the bunny with the pop its and also used a chalk brush to do the bunny cheeks.  The eyes and nose are so small on this cut that I added a dot of zig 2 way glue where they needed to be and then used the Quicker Picker upper from Quickutz to pick up the tiny pieces and place them exactly where I needed them. 

I love Glossy Accents and brushed (with my finger) glossy accents glue all over the bunny. 

I also used the glossy accents to make the stamped sentiment stand out.  Both stamps come from My Pink Stamper.

To add the Bakers Twine flower stems, I first added a line of glue with my Zig 2 way and then set the bakers twine in the glue.

As soon as the bakers twine was secure, I glued the flowers over the top of the 'stems'. 

Not sure if you can tell from the picture, but I added a few 'dew drops' to the flowers with the glossy accents.

Here is a video showing how I made these sweet little flowers with my Gypsy and the Mothers Day Bouquet cartridge:
