Healthy .... and not so healthy

As you can see, my post title describes my card to a "T" - a little bit healthy and a LOT not quite (unless you count dark chocolate as one of your food groups).  I used The Paper Players Challenge #138 and the ABC Challenge #22 - Easter for my inspiration.

I haven't made too many Easter cards this year so when I saw this sketch I thought of this retired Chocolate Bunny single stamp.  The card base is Pretty in Pink card stock.  On the front right edge I used the Big Shot and one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies to cut off the edge.  I then ran it through the Big Shot again with the Adorning Accents embossing folder.  A piece of Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Parade designer paper was also cut out with the same die and attached along the cut and embossed edge of the card front.  Rich Razzleberry card stock was embossed using the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and added to the card.  I heat embossed the image using VersaMark and Early Espresso embossing powder on Whisper White card stock.  It was matted with Pretty in Pink card stock.  After adding three Rich Razzleberry brads, it was popped up on the card with dimensionals.  The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamps set was heat embossed on Rich Razzleberry card stock using VersaMark and White embossing powder, cut out with one of the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and matted with a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock cut out with another Bitty Banners die.  It was attached using a dimensional.  The carrot was hand drawn on Pumpkin Pie card stock, accented with a Pumpkin Pie marker and sponged around the edges with Pumpkin Pie inkThe "carrot top" was snipped from Old Olive card 
stock and attached to the carrot.  A dimensional was used to add it to the card.  I also added a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock to the inside edge of the card.  It was cut out along one edge with the same die and embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folderI did this so the cut edge of the front would stand out a little better.  I hope you enjoyed today's card and, as always, if you have any questions, please let me know.  Enjoy your evening and I'll see you soon.
