Happy Easter!

After seeing the cute bunny posted on Stampin' Up!'s blog earlier this week, I decided that I had to make a couple of these for my boys. I did make a couple changes though.  I used the largest oval framelit for the body, just to make the bunny a little bigger.  

I also used the smallest heart framelit for the nose.  I also used the owl punch for his eyes, and for the heart on the banner.

For the bunny, I used the Natural Composition paper - to give them a little dimension.  I like how this paper is already embossed and that it resists ink.  For the egg that the bunny is holding, I used the 2 x 1 3/8" oval punch instead of the one suggested, especially since my bunny's body was larger.

I also inked the embossing folder before embossing the egg, just for fun ;)

If you've never applied ink to an embossing folder before embossing, you should really try it! 

I also added googly eyes.  You can never go wrong with googly eyes!  I'm sure glad I stocked up on them from the Holiday Catalogue.  Maybe they'll make it to the 2013-2014 catalogue?  I really like how the bunny turned out!
