Serendipity Blog Hop Day 2 - Bunny


We are on to Day 2 of the Blog Hop!  We have a cute NEW bunny die to show off today.

I decided my bunny should be on an Easter card so I pulled out my Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments and Secret Garden papers.  Here is how I made my bunny.  I used peach then white paper to die cut the body. I cut off his white tail and glued it to the peach body.  I backed the bunny with purple paper and added the green pearl pen to the flower centers.

Here is a close up of the corner and you can see the dimension of the chipboard, bunny and flower centers.  Nearly everything is edged in Chestnut Roan ink.

Inside my card I used some G45 Secret Garden banners. The strips at the bottom are from the Sweet Sentiments 8x8 pad.
The finished size is 5 1/2" square.
