Little Gray Hare Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a birthday card made with the KaDoodle Bug Designs file, "CK Carrot Garden" which can be found here:


Two sided Designer Papers from K & Co.
Plain cardstock in white, gray, red, orange, black, brown
One yard 3/8 inch green striped ribbon

Files used: CK Carrot Garden by KaDoodle Bug Designs, Mats by Cricut

The card base is 6 by 12 inches. It is scored at 3 and 6 inches. The base mats are cut at 2 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches and 2 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches for the small areas. The large area has mats cut at 5 1/2 inches square and 5 3/4 inches square. The decorative mats are cut at 4 inches and 3 5/8 inches. The bunny in the wheelbarrow is made about 3 3/4 inches tall. I also made three extra carrots for the right side that were sized to about two inches including the tops. The sentiment was made with design space and uses system fonts.

I created the card by folding it in half at the 6 inch mark, then folding the left section back to the left. With the card lying open, and leaving enough ribbon free for tying, I ran the ribbon around the back and over the left section. I attached the ribbon by running a glue dot runner over the ribbon. The mat with the sentiment was attached to the center of the right side of the card. The mat with the bunny was attached to the left most section so only the left half is attached to the flap and the other side is free. The two mats should line up so they lie one over the other when the card is closed. Close the card by tying the ribbon at the right side.

Thanks for stopping by!
