Easter Wishes

Happy Easter to you all.  Today we honor the sacrifice our Savior Jesus made for our eternal salvation and forgiveness of our sins.  I pray you are all enjoying this joyous holiday with family and friends.

When I saw this post on Dannie Graves' blog, I just had to recreate the bunny.  I combined her ideas and this tutorial she recommended.
I also challenged myself with the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge #147 and 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #34 - Easter.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock.  Using the Big Shot and the Scallop Rectangle Clearlits Die, I cut out four rectangles from Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, Garden Green and Crumb Cake card stock.  I added three "eggs" to each rectangle punched out with the 3/4" x 15/16" Oval punch from the same four colors as well as Blueberry Crisp and Woodland Walk designer papers.  I attached the four rectangles to Very Vanilla card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder that gave me the embedded embossing effect.  I added Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy, Garden Green and Crumb Cake brads and adhered the whole layer to the card front.  I followed the tutorial for making the bunny improvising on the feet and the ears.  I don't have the small oval punch so I punched out the feet with the 2" x 1-3/8" Oval punch and flattened his feet with Paper Snips.  The Pretty in Pink inner ear was punched with the 1-3/4" x 7/8" Oval punch once and then re-punched on the opposite side to give it a narrower appearance.  I sponged around all his body parts with Soft Suede ink, around his eyes with Tempting Turquoise ink, and around his nose and inner ear with Pretty in Pink ink.  The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was punched on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Soft Suede ink.  I cut one end to make it look like a banner and attached it under the arm of the bunny.  The bunny was added to the card front with dimensionals.  He was fun to make and I'm sure he will show up on cards in the future.  Enjoy your day.
