Christmas Bunnies Post

So after a weekend of decorating I'm back to crafting and decided to make a Christmas card with a digi stamp from Lili of the Valley.


Isn't this just the cutest image, its called Christmas Bunnies Post and I absolutely adore him, yes I think he's definitely a boy bunny :)

Firstly I coloured the image with Gansai Tambi watercolours.  Found some leftover snippets of Basic Grey Wassail patterned papers, once pieced together I ran the paper through the sewing machine using the zigzag stitch.  To hide my join I used a Memory Box Christmas tree die and matted behind the main image.  A notepad punch created the border to keep with a postal theme.


The little card was made using some very old stamps (sorry I will update with the name later but I packed away before writing up my supplies) and the envelope was created using Sizzix Bigz envelope die.


I added a corner of Prima poinsettias and some greenery die cuts from scraps of green cardstock.  Popped on a few gems and gave him a splash of Stickles to his hat and pompoms. 

I'm my biggest critic but I'm thrilled with how this card turned out and it may well be given to my youngest son this year as I doubt I'm going to be able to part with it but we'll see - I have a feeling you may see more of him :)
