Easter is Almost Here!

Can you believe that we are about to celebrate Easter?!! Oh, where has the time gone! Even though time seems to be flying by, I'm very, very happy to say hello to Spring....it was a long, long winter!



So, for this week's Bloggers' Challenge, we were to make an Easter card, and I'm embarrassed to say that this is the very first time I've used this cute little stamp, Chocolate Bunny...he's one of those fabulous single stamps you can purchase from SU for under $10. He is so realistic and truly reminds me of those yummy chocolate bunnies I used to receive in my Easter basket when I was a child. Here, he is simply stamped in Chocolate Chip ink onto Close to Cocoa CS, cut out and layered against that fun scalloped piece...it's a "Hug" from the Occasions Mini. Check out the impressed border on the Bashful Blue background.....I cut apart a Finial Press Embossing Folder. This idea is from the fabulously talented Sandi MacIver. You can see how it's done here. As you can tell, there isn't a lot of stamping on this card.....and I really utilized the Big Shot.
Stamps: Chocolate Bunny, Whimsical Sayings
Inks: Chocolate Chip (bunny), Close to Cocoa (saying)
CS: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip (oval layer), Close to Cocoa (bunny)
Misc: Big Shot, Large Oval Punch, Ovals Die, Little Leaves Sizzlet, Finial Press Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Brown Taffeta Ribbon
Please note: ALL materials used to create this card are currently available from SU!
Thanks for stopping by today. I wish each of you a very blessed Easter. And please don't forget to stop by and see what the other Bloggers' have created...you KNOW it's always worth a peak!

Love it all and that finial press border is spectacular! Thanks for explaining how you did it. I think perhaps I'll have to invest in a some of these to cut apart because I just can't bring myself to do it to my one and only!
