Peter Rabbit Inspiration with Christy

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Inspired by a Book, Movie, or Song Challenge! I have been loving watching the entries come in and am blown away by your creativity!

For my card today, I wanted to depict another classic children’s tale and one of my personal favorites: Peter Rabbit. I pulled together images from Some Bunny, Happy Harvest, A Bug Deal, Our Friendship Grows, and Critters on the Farm to make it happen.

The first thing I needed to do was to alter my bunny and give him a little jacket just like Peter’s. So I drew it in pencil and then traced over it with a Memento Tuxedo Black Pen. I also altered the watering can to give it a top with a little opening at the front, to resemble the one in the illustrations. Then I colored all my images with Copic markers to match as closely as possible, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I took the second largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and die cut some Mermaid Cardstock for the sky. Then I used the Grassy Border on some Cilantro for the grass, and the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders on Ground Coffee for the dirt. I stamped a sentiment from Some Bunny at the top of the sky panel in Peacock Ink.

To give the card a cozy look, I added a piece of patterned paper from the Perfectly Plaid Remix 6×6, die cut with the largest of the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables to my Speckled Eggshell card base. Then I popped my focal panel up with foam tape and adhered my images with liquid glue to create the nostalgic scene in Mr. MacGregor’s garden. I also added a bit of Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle and shine.

I also finished off the inside of the card by stamping another classic scene from the book, but you can check that out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

If you haven’t had a chance to play along in our challenge yet, there’s still time! The Inspired By challenge will be open until Sunday, April 4th at 11:59PM ET. I can’t wait to see what you create!
