Some bunny loves you!!

Hello AI Fans!!!
Easter is almost here! And I wanted to create one of these 3D shadow box cards from the Silhouette store by Lori Whitlock. This one is supposed to be all clouds with a bunny floating in a hot air balloon, but I just altered it to be able to use for a little Easter scene using the adorable Hoppy Easter Set from Art Impressions. So I simply cut each page out twice, once in green and once in white.  I just turned the bottom "clouds" into bushes! Oh! and I trimmed off the hot air balloon from the top of it.  Easy peasy!!
Next I cut two picket fences so I could layer it up for more dimension, and attached it to the front of the card. I then colored each of the bunnies with Copic markers (listed below), and fussy cut them out and popped them up with some mounting tape. I added the sentiment to a die cut cloud and popped it up from the bottom layer.
The cool part about this card is that it folds flat so you can send it through the mail!!
Copic markers used:
Bunnies: E50, E51, E53, E55, R20
Clothing: YG21, YG23, B21, B23, Y32, Y35, Y38, E33, YR02, YR04, YR07, R11, R12, YR61, YR65, V01, V04, RV32, RV34

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today and hope you have some time to get crafty! Have an awesome weekend!!

Hello AI Fans!!
So are you loving the new Easter stamps and the two new Shakers that AI has released?  Today I'm featuring the adorable new Birthday Fairy Set (#4730)! LOVE her!!! Her skirt is on a wobble, so she's ready to dance to help you celebrate!!! The die for her skirt comes in the set, but I trimmed off the white edge before putting it on the wobble.

The shaped card was cut with the Silhouette, and then I just doodled around the edges.
