Some Bunny

Well, today is the first day of Lent, which means Spring is just around the corner and it's time to start thinking about Easter. This is the first of three cards for my March Card class. 

With this card, I'm teaching how to use the new Embossing folders that Close to my Heart now carries. These folders are so unique because you can now emboss a continuous piece of paper 4 1/8" wide and any length due to the slit at the top of the folder. This is ideal for adding texture to scrapbook pages as well as large cards. The folder themselves are 5"x7".  The one I used is called Quatrefoil.

I embossed Pear Cardstock with the Quatrefoil embossing folder then wiped the pear ink pad over it. This was then mounted on Topiary CS

The stamp set is a special Hostess only stamp set called Some Bunny. It was stamped with black Memento ink and colored with water color pencils and a Blender Pen.

The scalloped Circle was cut with the CTMH exclusive cricut cartridge, Art Philosophy. The stamp matches the cut.

The inspiration for this card actually started with a sketch challenge from Catch the Bug.
