This is actually a sad post. Binky, our Nederland Dwarf rabbit of over 7 years, passed away on Saturday. We knew she had not been doing well for awhile. She was at least 8 years old and seemed to be losing her sight. She would walk by important things, like the entrance to her enclosure and food. On the rare occasion that we let her wander outside her enclosure, she seemed to get lost and somehow ended up in the study which would have involved going down two steps. Unfortunately no one witnessed how she got there. I can only hope she did not slid down the steps as I did when I broke my leg and sprained my ankle. In addition to her sight, she also seemed to be losing her fur in patches. So when she passed away, in some ways we were prepared.
The next day when I sat down to craft, Binky was on my mind. I knew I had to create a card in her honor. The “All Bundled Up” stamp set from the July to December 2022 had a sweet bunny that would be perfect. I wanted to create an easel card so I could stand it on the shelf and remember Binky.
To create the easel card, I used:
- 4 1/4″ x 11″ Soft Sea Foam cardstock, scored at 5 1/2″
- 4″ x 10 1/2″ Fresh Freesia cardstock, scored at 5 1/4″ and 7 7/8″
- 3 3/4″ x 5″ Splendid Day Designer Series Paper
- 4″ x 5 1/4″ Basic White cardstock (for inside of card)
- 2 3/8″ x 3 3/4″ Splendid Day Designer Series Paper
- 2 3/4″ x 1 5/8″ Fresh Freesia
- 2 1/2″ x 1 3/8″ Basic White (for image)
I stamped the bunny in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored using Crumb Cake, Fresh Freesia and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered all the pieces with Stampin’ Seal. In the end, this card wasn’t that hard, just make sure to line up the pieces well.
I hope you enjoy this card and try this fun fold for yourself. Until next time, have fun crafting!
