Bunny Birthday Card

In the spirit of Easter, I thought I would post this bunny birthday card I made for my sister.  Her birthday is in early April, she loves all manner of animals and she was born in the year of the Rabbit, so I thought it was appropriate for her.

I designed this die cut rabbit on my Boss Kut Gazelle. It was the first step towards designing my custom dog die cut. I cut it out of Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock. Polka dotted cardstock is so simple but always so cute!
The doily is a Lifestyles Crafts die I got on sale at Michaels Craft Store.  Lifestyle Crafts was previously Quickutz and, more recently, purchased by We R Memory Keepers. We R Memory Keepers needs to re-brand the packaging, so there was a whole stand of 4x4 Lifestyle Crafts dies on sale at Michaels a while back and I picked up a few!

TIP: The sentiment is a machination of stamps.  I used an alphabet stamp by Studio G that I bought at Michaels for cheap to spell "Hoppy" and then I used a "Happy Birthday" stamp from Close to My Heart for the Birthday part. I put tape over the "Happy" part so that only the word "Birthday" would receive ink. I learned this tip from my Close to My Heart consultant, Sheri Ballantyne.

I composed a little poem for the inside too. My sister really liked it. I used papers from a Recollections paper pad I bought at Michaels.  Paper pads are on my "no buy" list, but I really liked how well coordinated this pad was, so I caved and now I feel obligated to use it up!  Do you ever have those days? I think half the fun of any hobby is accumulating all the goodies that go with it!

HOPPY EASTER to everyone too.
