Chocolate Bunnies

Hi, everybody.  I would like to welcome my newest follower, Donna Ellis!  Now, Donna, I know you were already a Bloglovin' follower, but it's so nice to see your beautiful face over there under my GFC followers - thank you!  Tonight I am sharing an Easter card I made - I tried to keep it CAS and masculine since it's for a boy.

There were no digis used on this card, all traditional stamping.  I took the photo on an angle so you can see the heat embossing.  I embossed the bunny in brown on brown cardstock and fussy-cut. Here are the supplies used:

  • Stamps:  Bunny and sentiment (See-D's Bunnies and Chicks)
  • Embossing powder:  The Artful Stamper
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Patterned paper:  Recess of Carson Dellosa
  • Cardstock:  Recycled backing board
  • Accent:  Metallic egg (dollar store)
