Bunny and Eggs

Hello and welcome to my blog!
Today's card is such a cutie!
Isn't that image absolutely adorable!?  I loved coloring it and cutting it out...so so cute!  The image is from Sans Designs, but I can't seem to find the link for it now :(  I printed it 3 times, then cut out the ruffle frame on 2 of the copies, glued them together and then popped them up on the full image so it created sort of a frame shadow box effect.  I think it worked out pretty good!
The larger paper in the background is from Designs by Krista for a spring blog train.  I loved this paper and have been dying to use it on a card!  The striped paper is from Eye Inspire, which was also involved in that same spring blog train :)  I really love using digital papers.  There are so many freebies on the net and it makes it easier choosing what I want instead of sifting through bins at a craft store (which there aren't very many craft stores in Montreal...so digital paper for me is a lifesaver :) ).  My only problem with printing these digital backgrounds is they never turn out as nice, clear and crisp as they appear on the screen, or the way designer paper is from the store...

Do you have any suggestions on how to get these papers to print better?  I know I don't have the greatest printer in the world to print papers with, but I can't afford a really nice one right now.  I've also tried researching if using different card stock would work...but I couldn't really find any information on that either...
So if you print digital papers, what card stock do you use?  Do you set up specific settings on your computer so they print at a better quality?  Any advice in this area is appreciated :)

Ok back to the card :)
 I layered everything on cream card stock with purple as the final frame.  There are 2 pieces of ribbon stacked on top of each other and run under the image.  I tied a small bow with the purple ribbon and stuck it at the top of the framed image.  Then I cut out a banner in purple, added some purple stitching and placed that on top of the ribbons.
I took some shimmery 3D paint and added varying sized dots to all the corners. Put some final touches of glitter on the image and it was done!

    PS - I can never get digital papers to print out well either, so no advice there I'm afraid! I've got quite a few stored on the computer but always end up going to my paper packs!!!

  8. Too cute! I think the shadow box effect turned out great. I have never printed digi paper I have some stored but was afraid it would turn out right. I hope you find some answers. Thanks for playing along with us at SSDS!

  10. Beautiful creation! Thanks for joining us at The Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog. Hugs, Julia

  11. Love the image and the papers you've used - a lovely card.

    Have you tried printing on photo paper or on pearl paper? I use a photo paper to print my digi papers and they work pretty well - I don't have an expensive printer.

    Thanks for joining us at The Squirrel and the Fox.
