Easter's On It's Way Embossed Bunny Card

I think I said I was done sharing Easter cards . . .but I lied. I have ONE MORE. And I think that's really it this time. Today kicks off a new challenge on the Impression Obsession blog, and the theme is Bunny Love! It doesn't have to be an Easter card . . . but I thought I'd be sneaky and get one more in! I raved about these darling bunny stamps a few weeks ago, and how much I love them embossed, so I just had to emboss them again. THEY.ARE.SO.CUTE.  

I paired these sweet bunnies with some patterned paper that you might recognize from my last Easter project. Black and white plaid matches ALL.OF.THE.THINGS. (I'm sorry for raising my voice at you - but it's important to recognize the cuteness of bunnies and black & white plaid!)

This card was really simple - I embossed the bunnies on the Bubble Gum cardstock panel, adhered it to my card base, and then added the matted layer of patterned paper. The sentiment was added on another simple strip of cardstock, and I embossed one extra bunny to add as a finishing touch (along with a button and a bow!)

I hope you'll consider pulling some Impression Obsession stamps and dies from your stash and joining in on the Bunny Love Challenge. You can find all the details over on the IO Blog. (You may even win a $25 gift certificate!) And if you're lacking some Impression Obsession Stamps, head on over to the website - I dare you to not get sucked in to shopping for HOURS. It's like a never-ending supply of crafty goodness over there! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by - and of course, have a MOST beautiful and blessed Easter weekend!

Easter Bunny Treat Box and Handmade Card {Lil' Inker Designs}

I couldn't let the season escape before I made one more project with the Bunnies & Bows die set from Lil' Inker Designs. This is always my go-to die set for Easter cards and crafts, but this bunny die has a new friend in my collection and I can't wait to share it with you too!

First though, let's chat about this Easter card. The Silly Stitched Squares Tag made a fun little base for the bunny to rest on. Before I adhered it together, I stamped a fun polka dot background on the tag. I used the same stamp set to stamp the lined background pattern, and then I cut the stitched border.  (That die is my FAVORITE for adding subtle detail to the background of a card.) 

Next up, meet my newest favorite bunny die from Lil' Inker! This is the Peek-a-Boo Bunny Die. Oh my gracious, is she cute or WHAT!? This is a fun sized die because it will take up almost the whole size of a standard card. But it is ABSOLUTELY perfect on this Snack Box from FSJ. It's really quick and easy to die cut the elements of the bunny, and then assemble them together.  I added some flowers and a bow to her ear for some festive springtime accessories! (Even bunnies want to be stylish!)
 The Snack Box die is darling for filling with treats and goodies. For this project, I cut the closure flap off the top so it is just an opened-top handled bag. Then I trimmed some patterned paper to adhere to the front, before attaching my sweet bunny! This treat box is the perfect size to fill with Easter grass and treats. They'd be darling as party of your Easter table decorations too! Add names to the tags, and you could create personalized treats for every person at the table!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your Easter preparations and festivities are simply BEAUTIFUL and special, and filled with fun. xoxo
