Somebunny to Love

I recently received my first issue of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine. This is a magazine that comes from Great Britian so you have to convert metric to standard measurements but that's not really hard. Just look at the other side of your ruler! Anyway, they included a free gift of these adorable stamps. Here's one of them that I made. I'll post the second one on Wednesday.
Materials needed:
Somebunny to Love stamp set from Quick Cards
Baked Brown Sugar card stock, 1 3/4 x 3 3/8", 1 3/4 x 1 1/4", 1 3/4 x 5", 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Pool Party card stock 4 x 5 1/4"
Patterned papers
      from SU International Bazaar 1 1/2 x 4 3/4"
      from the center of Quick Cards magazine 1 x 1 /2", 1 1/2 x 3 1/8"
White card stock 2 3/8 x 3 5/8" plus
Bermuda Bay ink
Basic Black ink
Stampin' Pastels (#105542)
Brights Brads (#119740)
Aqua painter (#103954)
Corner rounder
Large oval punch
Cotton swabs
Hair spray
Stampin' Dimenionals (#104430)

1. Stamp the bunny stamp in black ink on white card stock. Stamp the "hello" in Bermuda Bay ink on white card stock.
2. Use the corner rounder to round the corners on the bunny image. Use the large oval punch to punch out the "hello" greeting.
3. Use cotton swabs or sponge applicators to adhere the pastel colors onto the image.  Spray it lightly with hair spray when finished. Hair spray is not acid free so if you want all acid free, skip this step. The hair spray will seal the colors and brighten them.
4. Adhere the Pool Party card stock on top of the largest piece of Baked Brown Sugar card stock. Adhere the patterned papers on top of the Baked Brown Sugar card stock of the corresponding sizes. You should have a border around each piece of patterned paper.
5. Adhere the Baked Brown Sugar card stock and patterned papers on the card as shown.
6. Place adhesive on the back of the colored image and adhere it to the left over the patterned papers.
Place Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the greeting oval and adhere it to the top right of the card.
7. Punch holes in the rectangles. Punch a hole in the top left of the largest, in the bottom right corners of the other two. Add brads to each of these.
8. Adhere the card front to a card back.
Have fun!
