Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Card Ideas

By Karen Mortensen

 

 

 

 

Introduction:

Bo Bunny's collections are designed to help you complete coordinated projects, to that end their collections comprises a selection of beautiful papers and embellishments, including papers with cut-out panels that I have used extensively on my cards here. The panels allow you to create super quick and beautiful cards, and I wanted to show you how versatile they are.

 

 


 

I combined the Beautiful Dreamer products with a few Santoro Mirabelle stickers: the little girl, the bird and the butterfly. The banner at the top I just cut from a scrap piece of Soiree paper that I used on another card. Nothing is ever wasted when I create LOL
Although there is a large clock in the Noteworthy pack I had already used that but thankfully there was another clock on one of the papers so I cut that out and used it here instead.  The frame is one of the cut outs and it has a key on there, I used Glossy Accents on the key for a 3D effect. The little Bird cut-out is from one of the papers too.  So here is a super quick guide to making this card:

Cut a piece of 13.5" x 4" plain cardstock into a card size 5.75" x 4" with the fold at the top.

Cut two pieces of Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Imagine into size 5.65 x4". Ink with brown Distress Ink then glue one panel to the front of the card, and another to the inside of a card. We are using the reverse side of the paper here.

Cut out the relevant panel from the  Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer "Live Life" paper. Ink the edges and stick to the middle of the front of the card. Gloss the picture of the key on the panel using Glossy Accents and leave to dry.  Cut out clock from Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Imagine paper and stick onto panel. Cut out the bird stamp from the same paper.

Using a piece of scrap paper that will coordinate cut a little banner for the top, ink edges and stick on. Add a sentiment, either by writing directly on the banner or using a rub-on etc., add three pearls to the side.

 Add a Santoro Mirabelle Girl sticker to the front and from the same sticker sheet a pink butterfly and a blue bird.  (see picture below)

Card size: 5.2" x 3.5". In this card I combined a few Bo Bunny collections, and used the door from  a paper from Bo Bunny The Avenues, the flowers are fussy cut from a Bo Bunny Juliet paper, background paper is Soiree. Banner with sentiment is from the Beautiful Dreamer Noteworthy pack.

Quick Guide:

Cut a piece of 10.4" x 3.4" plain white card into a card size 5.2" x 3.4" with the fold at the top.

Cut two pieces of  Bo Bunny Soiree Paper Linens  (reverse side used) into size 5.1" x 3.2", ink edges with brown distress ink then glue one onto the front of the card and the other to the inside of the card.

Cut a door panel from Bo Bunny The Avenues Paper, ink edges and stick to the front.

Add some Glossy accents to two top corners and here and there on the edges and sprinkle with glass beads, press them down (see picture below)

Cut out several roses from the Bo Bunny Juliet paper Soulmates and stick on the top of the door.

Add pearls, a heart brad, a key and a sentiment. I used a die-cut for my sentiment here.

Card measures 5.8" x 4.7".  Here I combined collections and used the beautiful Soiree paper from Bo Bunny with one of the Beautiful Dreamer cut-out papers. The background paper is of course double-sided the reverse of the paper is what you see on the bent back corner and the tear in the paper.

Quick Guide:

Fold a piece of white card into size 5.8" x 4.7"

Cut a piece of Bo Bunny Soiree Paper Linens on the edge of the paper to get the doily design. Ink edges heavily. Fold one of the corners and attach a large brad (see picture. Hold against card and cut a piece of the same paper a little larger than your folded corner. Ink edges then glue the little corner piece down onto the card itself.

Tear the Soiree piece of paper and roll the edges a little to show the white edge.  Again hold it up to the card and cut a piece of the soiree paper large enough to sit behind the torn out piece. Use the reverse side of the Soiree paper and glue it behind the tear.

Stick this front panel to the front of the card.

Cut the relevant cut-out from the  Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Life Life. Ink edges then stick to front (see picture for guidance)

Finish with a lace bow and a few gem stones. I added a Prima Fairy.

Cut another piece of the Soiree paper and use the reverse to decorate the inside

The beautiful golden Balloon die-cut really lifts this card - I love it!!.  The card itself measures approximately 6" x 6". The beautiful Victorian lady is from one of the Beautiful Dreamer papers, as is the round green circle below her.

Look how beautiful the balloon is when the light catches it:
 
 

 

Here is a quick guide:

Cut a piece of black cardstock into a card size 6" x 6".

Cut a piece of  Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Mirage slightly smaller than the front of the card and stick to the front of the card.

Assemble the middle:

Cut the big round green circle with "stay passionately curious" wording around the edge out from Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Life Life.  Arrange the elements for the middle before you stick it down. Cut the the lady in the frame from Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Imagine and set her upon foam tape to lift her off the paper. Tuck a couple of small doilies under her and one in the corner, and top with pearls. Arrange a few roses around the other edge.#

Add a few pearls at the bottom of the card and top left.  I used a light green cardstock for the inside of this card to complement the front.

This card is approximate 5.5" x 5.2". Again I used those GORGEOUS golden die-cuts!  The "Love" piece is glittered and just beautiful. Three noteworthy die-cutswere  used on this card.


 

 

Quick Guide:

Cut a piece of white card into a card size 5.75" x 5.2". Cut two pieces from the Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Mirage  slightly smaller than the front of the card. Ink edges with distress ink then stick the reverse side of the paper to the front and the other side to the inside of the card.

Add the journaling die cut to the front as shown then the clock die-cut and finally the "Love" pice - all three are from the Noteworthy pack.

Add pearls to the corner and embellish as you like. I added a lace bow tot the top, some purple roses  -I rubbed a little metallic ink on the roses just to lift them - a Prima resin mask an Imaginisce brad and more pearls. The leaves I cut with a die.

 This is a larger card, measuring 8" x 4". I created a beautiful middle section then proceed to cover it all with the four birds LOL  The birds are from one of the sheets. The flowers with the bird on top is a noteworthy from the collection and I cut the little bird out from one of the sheets too.

This is a small card just to show that you can literally put a card together in minutes. The card measures just over 4" square.  I just took a piece of plain cardstock, inked the edges with brown distress ink - cut out one of the squares from the paper, used a couple of rub-ons for the sentiment, inked the cut-out and stuck it to the card. Adding a few brads and a button completed the card in minutes. Easy peasy.

Opulently golden shimmer.

Cut two pieces of Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper Imagine (reverse side used here) slightly smaller than the card to show a margin as shown, ink edges then stick one to the front of the card, and one to the inside - I always decorate the inside too, it makes a huge difference to the look and feel of the card. Add the clock die-cut from the Noteworthy pack. Print out the "Happy Birthday" sign that I am givng you below at the size you want. Mine is 11cm x 3cm. You can insert the image into a Word document and resize it and print it from there.  Stick onto front of card.

Card 9


This card uses yet another one of the golden frames cut out form the paper.

 

 

 

Quick guide:

Cut a 12" x 5.2" piece of contrasting cardstock and fold into a card size 6" x 5".  Using a border punch cut the bottom of the card into a fancy edge. Cut a piece of Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper "So Lovely" into 4.2" wide and the height from the cut edge to the top of the card and stick it on (use reverse side). Cut a similar piece for the inside size 4.2" x 6".

Add a ribbon to the middle then the beautiful frame cut out from Bo Bunny Beautiful Dreamer Paper "Daydream". Add the coordinating banner die-cut from the Noteworthy pack and tuck another little die-cut behind it. Add a resin fairy and a sentiment.

The last card uses paper from Graphic 45 alongside Bo Bunny's Beautiful Dreamer:

 

 
Card size is 6" x 6" The chipboard I think was an old Kaisercraft one. I painted it with crackle paint, the sprayed it with Distress Stain "Tarnished Brass".  The sentiment is a Basic Grey Rub-on and I filled the star from the rub-on with Liquid Pearls.. On the frame itself I used Glossy Accents all over the balloon picture in the middle to give an illusions of glass.
