For Day 2, we are showcasing the Hoppy Greetings Stamp Set and coordinating dies with the Hare Mail stamp set and coordinating dies.

Simplicity is my main goal on this first card!

I started by stamping my image on an A2-size panel of some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  

To add some texture to the background, I did the same procedure as I did yesterday with my card and using the Basketweave Stencil with the same colors of dye inks.  I was very careful not to add any of the details to my focal image.  I adhered this on some A2-size notecard with some liquid glue.  Easy, peasy!

The next card (below) is a bit more work but I LOVE how it turned out.

I stamped the image on some Neenah solar white and colored the image in with some alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating die to die-cut the image.

The black and white background panel was made by die-cutting some white card stock and some black stripes patterned paper using the biggest die from the Framework Die set.  I adhered them together and added this panel to an A2-size pink notecard.

Next, I created the small envelope by using some patterned paper and my We R Memory Keepers Mini Envelope Punchboard.  I die-cut another piece of card stock and drew the lines with some rose gold pen.  I stamped the sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and adhered this inside the tiny envelope using my tape runner.  I also adhered my colored image with liquid glue.

Before adding the envelope to my card, I die-cut some greenery using the Pines & Holly die set, as well as some ephemera for added texture, adhering them with liquid glue.  I adhered the tiny envelope to my card front.  I finished my design by stamping the “hare mail” on the envelope with some Versafine Onyx black ink.
