There's no bunny like you...

Today's my day to be the guest designer over at She's a Sassy Lady. If you have a moment please hop on over and leave me a comment. Here's my post:

Hi everyone! This is Kristy from craftin-on-my-door and I want to thank Sheila for allowing my to be her guest designer again today! I look forward to my monthly She's a Sassy Lady posts!

With Easter just around the corner I thought it would be fun to make a spring like project! I have a super sweet friend that spoiled me rotten over the weekend, and I needed to make her a thank you card. I found a cute bunny idea using punches at the Papered Cottage, and I have the perfect set of stamps from My Creative Time to add to the card! Here's what I came up with:
Here are the papers that I started with:
 And here are the punches...
 Punch a large heart and a small heart
 Cut the hearts in half and use your scissors to curve off the top inside half of the heart. Below the one on the left has been cut.
 I didn't like the black in the pattern paper so I switched it to a light silver paper. ;)
 Using the Give a Hoot cartridge and the fit to length feature I cut a grass border at 4 1/4.
The card was cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Then, I laid out my papers and stamped the sentiment, "There's no bunny like you!"
 The cloud paper was cut at 4 1/4 x 4 1/2, and then I tied some hot pink twine around the bottom of the card.
 I used a couple of glue dots to attach the grass border, glued the larger circle down, and popped the smaller circle up with foam tape.
 I then decided that the cute little bunny need a face so I took it off the card and added some fun brads. Lastly, I added the sparkly silver pom pom for the bunny's little tail and rounded the bottom corners of the card with my corner chompers!
 Now, I just need to write my many thank yous inside and mail it off to my friend!

I hope this inspired you to pull out your punches and create a fun card! Thanks for stopping by today!  ♥Kristy
