Happy Easter Card

 Close Up of Bunny Embossed Swirls
 Close Up of Title
 Gift Box For Card

There's a first time for everything and this was my 1ST. Silhouette project ! I was very excited to get my new  machine and my dear friend Nana helped me get through a few minor set up issues. She is THE BEST!!!!!

I created this card for the challenge at Nana's blog silhouettechallenges which requires FAUX STITCHING. Easy Peasy!!

I did not like the flower pot just created out of paper, so I added a more 3D effect with silk flowers. The bunny also needed some pizazz so I embossed him with my Teresa Collins  E Bosser using a swirl pattern. The yellow  background of the card has a chicken wire design....perfect for a bunny on the run!
I created  a small box to present it in since it didn't fit in an envelope.
Hope you like it! 
I'm on my way to the Silhouette store to buy lots more images!

  3. I'm so happy for you. The card is MUCH prettier in person that in the pics. It is displayed on my fireplace. Love all the flowers and cute little bee you added and the embossing the bunny was a creative idea. You did a FANTASTIC job my friend. I knew all along that you would be great with the Silhouette, I can not wait to see what you create next.
    Have a creative day.
