The Bunny Hop Blog Hop

Hi everyone!! We are all so happy to have you hopping with us today!!

You should have come here from Dianne's blog.  If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning, please go back and visit Michelle (Queen of my Craftroom) so you won't miss any of the crafty ladies on the hop!!


Here is my card for the Bunny Hop Blog Hop!! Michelle hosts a card swap once a month and I am a proud new member of her DT too! This card is my submission for the Easter card swap.

The back ground paper is from The Glitter Stack by DCWV.  I used my Gypsy to create the card base from Preserves (cut @ 4 1/4" x 5 1/2") and the additional base layers cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and 3 3/4" x 5".


I've included the JPG file under this post so you can print your own sentiment circles.  I cut the sentiment out with a 1 1/2" circle punch and the scallop with a 2" punch but you could use the Cricut.


The bunny and her shadow is cut at 3 1/2" from Gypsy Wanderings. I added some little self-stick pearls to the bunny's eye. I put some white 1/2" gros-grain ribbon across the body of the card.


I place some more little white self-stick pearls in three sizes to the bottom left of the card.  Gel pen stitches are something I almost ALWAYS add to my projects. 

Here is the JPG file I designed on my computer for the sentiment.  Feel free to save it (click on the photo and right-click to save a copy for yourself).  It fits a 1 1/2" circle punch perfectly when printed on a 4" x 6".
