Easter Bunny Hop DAY ONE




Thank you for hopping along with us today....

You should have come from Janet's bog, if not please start from the beginning

I do hope you will come back tomorrow to see 10 new projects from the same people as today. 

Comment here to be entered to win the I-top 2.0 Bundle which includes
The I-top 2.0
The 34mm I-top punch
The 34mm head for the I-top 
And some additional brads so you can make your own....
Tomorrow you will see what I made with the I-top




I made this using Easter Magic, Cricut Craft Room Exclusive Cartridge.
I cut the bunnies and the sentiment at 2"
I used Bo Bunny Sweet Tooth paper for this.
The mesh at the bottom is something I have had forever and it seemed perfect for this. We all had to make a 3-D element in our project AND a bunny! So the mesh is sticky on one side, but you can pick it up and move it if you don't like it and it will not harm the paper. This was brown but not dark enough so I used the same ink that I did on the edges of my card. It is Momento Rich Cocoa, one of my crafting staples.... What would I do without my little Dew Drop inks?!?! 
I also used VersaMagic Jumbo Java and Rose Bud Momento Ink.  I cut the circle freehand and then inked the edges. I also use the Round it all by Zutter to round my corners. I also used Cinnamon Stickles for the 'sun burst' effect around the circle. I used used a little brad to gather the mesh and to keep it attached to the paper. The inside of the card was lined with matching paper AFTER I stuck the brad through it. So no one will see my brad or the mesh from the inside of the card!

Make sure you come back tomorrow to see my next project.... 
when my Bunny grows up :)
