More Easter Fun!

I had so much fun making the Easter Basket card that I posted yesterday that I just had to try to make this Easter Bunny that I had seen a few different places! Just like the card with the basket I only used one stamp on this card, so there would be little white dots all over the background of the card. The Bunny himself is made completely from punches and a marker to draw the whiskers and teeth.

The bunny ears were punched with the Large Oval Punch, and the inside of the ears with the Small Oval Punch (and I used Designer Paper to make it look cute). The head of the bunny was punched out with the 1-3/8-inch Circle Punch. The bunny cheeks are 2 separate punches with a 1/2-inch Circle Punch (and I sponged a little bashful blue ink on the edges so they stand out). The nose was punched with the 1/4-inch Circle Punch out of the same paper I used for the inside of the ears. The teeth were made with a 1/4-inch Square Punch and I drew a line down the middle so it looked like 2 teeth.

The hardest part about this card were the eyes. They are 1/8-inch circles that I punched from a handheld punch. They are super small, so it was a little difficult to get the adhesive on the back of them so they would stick!

I made the scalloped edge by using the Slit Punch 7 times right in a row. The patterned paper at the bottom is the pattern on the back of the Designer Paper that I used for the inside of the ears.

As I said before, I had seen this bunny a few places before but everytime I saw it the bunny had pink ears and many times a pink bow in its hair. I just kept thinking - the Easter Bunny is not a girl bunny so I had to make this one that is clearly a boy bunny.
