Bunny Card

Good morning everyone! Wow! I didn't know that I could sleep this late! The whole family did - well, it's not that unusual for Nick but for my husband it is very unusual! And then I just kept sleeping, too! Must have needed it, though. It felt so good! We will be heading to Denver a little later as Nick has a soccer game tomorrow morning. We are hoping to spend some time shopping up there to try and find Nick some track spikes. Yep! He is doing Middle School track and that starts next week. Nothing like keeping busy! It also looks like it could rain - and it is supposed to. I hope so as we need the moisture! Love spring rain!!

Today's card is one that I did with my shoebox club. Such a fun group of ladies!! I had seen this bunny in the Archiver's newsletter that I get and thought that I could recreate it using Stampin' Up! products. The dies they used were more egg shaped but I was determined to use the Oval framelits dies. And this is how it turned out. Pretty cute!! I also used some punches. The card part is the largest oval that isn't scalloped. I folded a 4 1/4" x 11" in half and then ran it through the big shot using the largest oval. Just make sure to slide the die over the folded part so it leaves the folded edge. This is sponged with Sahara Sand. His hears are the two smallest dies - the smallest one being used for the inside of his ears. The inside part was cut from Marina Mist and then ran through the big shot again with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and then sponged with Marina Mist. The bigger ones are sponged with Sahara Sand. I adhered the two parts of the ears together and then to the card. The feet are punched with the large oval punch and sponged with Sahara Sand. I added two feet to the front and two to the back so the card would stand. On the back is a little bunny butt punched with the Boho Blossoms punch and sponged with Sahara Sand. The bunny cheeks are punched with the small oval punch and then sponged with Marina Mist. I added some "freckles" on his cheeks with a Sahara Sand marker. Then I ran some linen thread through a Marina Mist button to make whiskers and adhered it to the card. The eyes are large rhinestones colored with a black sharpie. And there you have it! I thought these would be so cute for Easter or even a baby shower! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
