Festive Friday #11

Hello again! It's time for another Festive Friday and we're still all about Easter cards. I think this is my favourite card I have made in a while! 
Here it is...

I'll give you a quick run down of punches I've used. 
The clouds are the small scallop circle cut down to desired size, the fence was made from the word window, then glued onto two thin strips of card. The rabbit is from 1 1/4" circle for the body, the head is 1" circle and the ears are also from the 1" circle (Check further down for detail on how ears were done) The rabbits eyes and nose are from the owl punch. The butterflies are from beautiful wings embosslit, the flowers are the smallest flower on the boho punch and the grass is a strip of certainly celery, which I cut by hand. The 'easter' banner was created using 3/4" circle for the base, and the letters were punched from the 1/2" circle. The banner is then tied to some crochet wool and tied to two tooth picks. I dont own any alphabet stamps, so I used letters from 'Curly Cute' stamp set, to create the word 'easter'. I popped the fence and the rabbit up on dimensionals for added depth and pearls finish it off nicely. 

So there you have it - a 'brief' run down of punches used... still with me? :)

Now to create the ears, I did a few quick photos:

Punch out a circle.

Feed the circle half way into punch, then rotate card and feed other side in.
Here is what you will end up with from the one circle. Use the same method, but a smaller circle for the pink bits of the ear.

So now it's over to you.. pop past Nicole's blog to see what the other design team members have come up with and why not join in? 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
