EASTER BUNNY CARD-made with the cricut!

Bunny Card
Here is an Easter card I made using my Cricut and the Art Philosophy
Cartridge. I saw one similar that used punches, And I dont remember where to give credit..Because I so WOULD! But this uses the CRICUT.
Lets start...
I first cut out a hole to the card front at 1 3/4" with the cricut and added Brown Bag ink around the edges of the hole, Then I added the bunny bottom and face using a 1 3/4" circle. Attach the body to the INSIDE of the card and then add the head to the front using dimensionals pop dots... Isn't he Cuuuute??

Use a marker for the whisker details, and
the feet pads. Add dimensional pop dots to the feet.

All product used are Close to My Heart
Paper: Craft, Daisy white
Ink: HollyHock, Black, Brown Bag
Cutting sizes: Body 1 3/4" circle,Head 1 3/4" (ornament base trimmed), ears & feet 3/4" md oval, inside ears &feet 1/2" md oval
Cheeks 3/4" circle, Tail 3/4" Scallop circle x2, nose 1/2" triangle, or heart.
Accessories: Liquid Applique (for the fluffy tail)
and Licorice opaques gems for the eyes,
Pink Button
Banner cut at 2 1/2" for sentiment
Border was made with a ruler and a marker, then freehand the
squiggles. Love that effect!
