Blueprint Bunny Boy's Cards

I don't know about you all but I need Easter cards for boys.  I have 4 nephews and while 2 of them are young enough for "cute" cards, 2 are older and need something more masculine.  That makes me think of Tim Holtz and his Blueprint stamps.

I've made 3 similar cards and paper pieced the bunnies with brown paper to make them look chocolate.  I didn't have a Holtz Easter sentiment stamp so for this one I used Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments Set # 3.  I love the look of the font with the blueprint stamp.

This one is similar to the first but I changed up the paper.  
The bow tie really pops in a lighter color.

Inside I used another cute stamp from the same Graphic 45 set.  This trio of bunnies is perfect for a corner or envelope.  All the cards are A-2, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. 
I hope this inspires you to make some masculine Easter cards!
