Chocolate Bunny

Here is the second card from club on Sunday. This little Chocolate Bunny has been quite popular so far this Mini Catalog period, but I hadn't played with it yet! I figured it was now or never as Easter will have come and gone all too soon! The Chocolate Bunny is an individual stamp for just $7.95. You will find him on the last page of the Occasions Mini catalog. Don't miss your chance to own him!!!

The card base is Certainly Celery, chosen so I could use my new Certainly Celery Satin ribbon. LOVE IT!! All the great new colors are awesome! Again, in the Occasions Mini, page 27. The background layer is Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. We rounded the corners and sponged the edges with Apricot Appeal before tying the satin ribbon around. The Rose Romance layer was scalloped using the Scallop Trim Border punch and coordinating Scallop Trim corner punch (Occasions Mini p. 11). It takes a little practice, but when it comes together the result is AWESOME. Gretchen Barron has an awesome tutorial on which sizes work best for squares and rectangles with these punches. The layer behind the bunny was done using the Inspired by Nature "grass" and the flower and small butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly. The Bunny was stamped with Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed with clear powder on Close to Cocoa cardstock. Cut him out and attach with dimensionals. The Happy Easter (LOVE that script!) is from the Well Scripted set in, you guessed it, the Occasions Mini. The saying was punched with the Scallop Oval punch, and layered on an Apricot Appeal Scallop Oval from the Punch Windows set (for the Big Shot).

That sounds much more complex than it really is! Once you get the scalloping done, it goes together very quickly! Happy Tuesday all!
