Trucking down the Bunny Trail

For a Hare Load of Kitchen Sink Stamps Fun!

With Easter around the corner, I had two more Easter cards I wanted to share with you before popping them in the mail!

After stamping the backgrounds of both cards. For Honey Bunny (Multi-Step) Clear Stamps, Classic Old Truck (Multi-Step) Clear Stamps: hill, tree, grass, flowers, sky, and sentiment. And for Honey Bunny (Multi-Step) Clear Stamps, Teddy Bear Wishes (Multi-Step) Clear Stamps: sentiments and green brush stroke. I added the stamped, assembled SVG Cut files on top to finish.

Using individual stamped SVG Cut piece made it easier for me to position the bunny in the truck with eggs. I assembled the different pieces, by adding adhesive to the back of the truck bed. Same for Teddy and his Bunny Ears and basket of eggs.

Thanks for Stopping by and Happy Easter!
