Masculine Easter....maybe


Good morning! Gosh, I haven't been here in a week. I've been busy with other things. There are not enough hours in my days. I'm sure you know what I mean.

Guess what? I made the Spring CAS DT on Splitcoaststampers so I'll be here every Monday with a new Clean and Simple card.

I'm not sure if this is a male card. I just don't know if a guy would like this ribbon.  The colors were to be taken from a company called Design-Seeds and the inspiration is for neutrals. Also, you could have a dessert option of a natural element if you like.

I guess my bunny is looking for his Easter basket and eggs. The things at the bottom I stamped and stamped off are really called Teeny Flowers but I'm using them as pebbles.

Recipe:
Stamps-Inkadinkado/60-00512 (sentiment), Art Impressions/G-2917 (bunny), Art Impressions/AAA-1368
Paper-PTI vanilla creme cardstock, Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Scor-Pal, Copics/E70 & E71, brown and white gingham ribbon

Congratulations on your DT! ♥ That's wonderful! I love this card so very much - so soft and sweet - reminds me of my favorite childhood book, the Velveteen Rabbit! Stunning CAS card!

I'll take it. Does that answer your question of a guy liking it? I think it is just perfect in every way.

Yes, I think this can be a very nice masculine card - ribbon or not. The little bunny is precious and love those score lines you added!

Congrats on your newest assignment. They are lucky to have you on the team. Love your widdle bunny- he be so cute. Think the ribbon is a nice masculine gingham (think shirt) and is just fine. I especially loved the mid -scoring detail. Ver-EE classy Miss B. TFS & Hugs

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, when I glanced at this adorable card, I thought those were his footprints as he was searching for his basket! Pebbles made with a flower stamp - not that's some genius thinking right there, Brenda!! And IMHO it is defo a male card. Well, that sounded funny, but you know what I mean! Hugs, Darnell

Evie said...

Beautiful CAS card. I love it!

Lee-Anne said...

So happy you made the DT, Benzi! This little bunny is so cute...love the scoring and wonderful gingham...I do see it as a "guy" card!

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Benzi! Great little chocolatey Easter card! I especially like the little chocolate pieces for visual interest (giggle). Darling card!

It will be fun seeing your SCS CAS creations this year! I'm looking forward to it! Congratulations! hugs, de

Emily Keaton said...

Congratulations, Benzi! I know that you will be awesome on the CAS design team. Way to go! I do love your clean and simple bunny card--what a cutie!!

NanaConnie said...

Congratulations on the CAS DT spot, my friend! You're going to be fabulous at that. Love this card and that bunny is so sweet. I think the ribbon is perfect for a guy card. Checks and plaids always work well on masculine projects. :-D Love the "pebbles" -- such a perfect touch. With the white background, he almost looks like he's standing in melting snow.

Lynne in NI said...

Ahhh, LOVE this card. Immediately made me think of Watership Down! ... when it's on telly Greg's sure to be sitting watching it!

Shirley said...

Too too sweet!! A really adorable masculine Easter card!!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Aww! Well, I'm sure this would suit some guys, especially ones who wear plaid shirts. :)

Hey, congrats on making the DT! I've been thinking about you and hoping you made it. I'm working many full days now, and I feel very 'out of it' when it comes to my friends and their blogs. So....good for you! Well deserved, and have fun, Benzi!
