Chocolate Easter Rabbit Card
Posted by Anthony Macaluso on
Good evening yall,
Chocolate chocolate chocolate!!!! Good thing about this chocolate bunny card is that it is guilt free and calorie free. So come on in and indulge with me as we make this yummy Easter card.
First thing I did was cut down my card base and mats for the card. I am using some dark brown 110lb cardstock from Recollections for the card base, and for my mats, inside and out, I am using Neenah Desert Storm 80lb card stock. This card is going to be a standard A2 size card (5.5 x 4.25).
I then took one of the mats for the inside of the card and used my We r Memory Keepers corner crop a dile punch to round all four corners of the mat. I then added some water color washi tape to the bottom of the card. Then I adhered the mat to the inside of the card base with some art glitter glue. I then went ahead and used the large sentiment Happy from Maymay’s stamp set Big Time Saying’s stamp set using and the Easter sentiment from hare peeking stamp set with some Versamark ink. I then used the Nuvo glacier white embossing powder and used my heat tool to set it.
For the front of the card I went ahead and used the corner rounder to round the edges of the card base and the mat. Then i went ahead and used some white cardstock and ground espresso distress ink and used the ink to paper technique to cover a mat size panel to get a very dark brown look. I then used Sizzix Easter element die and ran it through my big shot and cut out the chocolate wabbit. Next I made a bow out of some pink raffia and adhered it with my art glitter glue near the wabbit’s neck.
I then took several of the distress oxide inks, wilted violet, broken china, worn lipstick and fossilized amber, and used my ink blending tool and blended them out on to separate panels of white cardstock. Once that was completed I then spritzed them with water to get a speckled effect to add more dimension and life to them. I then used a stitched egg die from Lawn Fawn and cut out several of the eggs with the different color panels for the front of the card.
I then tool some peeled paint oxide and blended it onto some white cardstock and lightly spritzed it with some water. Then I used my perfect tears ruler to rip the cardstock to mimic grass.
I then used my clarity stencil brushes to put some of the faded jeans oxide inks onto the card mat to make it look like the sky.
. After that I went ahead and used my art glitter glue and adhered the chocolate wabbit to the front of the card making sure his ears were at the top of the card. I then went ahead and used three of the stitched egg die cutes and glued them down across the bottom of the card. Then I went ahead and used some foam squares to pop up the grass and laid it down onto the bottom edge of the card. I had an extra egg die cut so I went ahead and adhered it to the inside of the card over the washi tape.
Final aspect of the card was to add the sentiment I’m all ears from Maymay’s hare peeking stamp set with some versamark ink. I heat set it with the nuvo embossing powder at the top right corner of the card.
This completed my card for today and if you want to sneak in a real piece of chocolate I won’t tell anyone that you did. Guilt free, calorie free or straight up chocolate I wish y’all a very blessed Easter my peeps.
