As lots of you know, if possible, I really love to pop a bit of interaction into my creations! I fell in love with the little bunny I used on my 'Eggcited' layout and thought he would be perfect to use on a Easter card... Mr Bunny loves to chase his carrot over the hills!
Here are the steps I took to create this pull-out card...
Firstly, I selected some paper (in this case, a sheet from Crate's Acorn Avenue). I wanted the patchwork side to be the hills, so I cut the shape I wanted for the card and folded the first 'flap' over.
Secondly, I cut the shape of the front 'hill' out of some matching card stock. I want my pull out message to come out of this front bit, so I scored a small section (which will adhere to the bottom patchwork 'hill') and then cut a line (see dotted line in pic) This is where I will feed the message through.
Next I glued the thin scored section onto the patchwork paper, making sure to leave the rest 'open' so I can feed my message through.
I used a digital rabbit that I found online and printed him onto some white card stock. I then fussy cut him out and attached him to a strip of paper (measured to fit inside the area I cut earlier). Feed this strip into the cut, resting the bunny along the top of the yellow hill, (don't forget to glue the left side shut now), and voilà you've got a bunny running over some hills!
This is what it looks like when you pull the carrot!
