Eager for Easter - Chocolate Bunny

One of the things that I love about being a demonstrator is being involved in swaps with the other demonstrators in my upline’s group. These swaps are a great way to learn new techniques, see more products firsthand, and it always gets my creative juices flowing again. Of course, it usually serves to enable me…more than once, I’ve ordered a product simply because what they had done with it was so cute.

One swap card I received recently was from my fellow demonstrator, Gayle Klingelhoets, did just that. She sent me this scrumptious chocolate bunny card. I had previously overlooked that simple stamp but fell in love when I saw her yummy green and chocolate brown version. And, at $7.95, the price is just right!

So I promptly ordered that stamp and came up with the card you see at the top of this post. By stamping it in chocolate chip ink on close to cocoa cardstock, I really accentuated the texture on the bunny – just like a real chocolate bunny. Then I carefully cut it out using paper snips and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensional to add some depth to the card.
