Celebrate Easter with Whimsy Stamps

Welcome to the Card Concept Challenge #152: Celebrate Easter!  I was inspired by the rabbits and carrots to create This Clean and Graphic card.
I am a fan of digital stamps for their flexibility in printing different sizes and locations. My card is made with the Bunny's Assistant Digital Stamp from Whimsy Stamps. This is from Sassy Cheryl's Illustration who I've followed when she had her own shop and now she is selling on Whimsy Stamps!
I wanted the rabbits to be on the left and with a digital stamp it is easy to make that happen. Once I downloaded the files, I resized the image and flipped it using Word. I printed the design on my Brother Laser Printer using Ranger's Watercolor Paper on the smooth side. I made 2 - 5" X 7" cards.
Here is the 2nd card:
To color I used a new set of pan watercolors from The Stamp Market:
Just look at these colors! Aren't they amazing and vibrant! I have been using them as my go to set lately and really enjoying them. Just take a pipette and drop 1 or 2 drops of water into the pan to loosen up the paint and you are ready to go! I always use my Silver Black Velvet brushes which have such a nice point it is easy to paint into tiny corners.

The sentiments are from the Better Together Stamp Set by the Colorado Craft Company stamped with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink:
Used this set on the inside, too:
I used my Memory MISTI (the 12" X 12" version) to stamp these sentiments. I know this is a large item for your craft desk, but I have found that the weight of the cover is such, that for the most part I get perfect stamping first time through. Also, since the cards were on the larger side there is plenty of room to work.

To make the card base I used Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 100 lbs. Cut 2 pieces at 5" X 7" and 2 pieces 5" X 7 1/2". I scored at the 1/2" line on the 7 1/2" length pieces and glued them to the 2 - 5" X 7" pieces. You can see the extra 1/2" at the top of the inside picture above.    
Cutie Patoodies!
Lastly, I'll just mention that I often run my watercolored panels (once totally dry) through my Heidi Swapp MINC Laminator using a folded piece of clean copy paper. It is like ironing the paper and straightens out any warping.
Here's a close up:

Thanks so much for stopping by. We'd love to see what you create and tell us what inspired you for our Celebrate Easter challenge!
