The One with the Chocolate Bunny Shaker Card


Hello everyone. Today I have two more cards to share with you using the NEW Gina K Designs February Release. I used the NEW Some Bunny stamp set to create these two cards. I will link the products used on these cards below.

To create this shaker card I started with a piece of heavy weight white cardstock cut to 3 1/2 by 4 3/4. I used the side profile bunny silhouette from the NEW Some Bunny stamp set from Gina K Designs' February Release. I grabbed the die from the coordinating die set and aligned it on the top part of the panel as if it were to be in a portrait orientation, leaving plenty of room below to stamp my sentiment. 

I wanted to stamp my sentiment on this panel before moving forward with creating the shaker card. I always have a bad habit of waiting to to the sentiment last, which makes for awkward stamping on a completed shaker panel. I stamped the "happy easter" sentiment with Gina K Amalgam ink in Obsidian and heat embossed it using Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder. 

I grabbed another piece of the same heavy weight white cardstock cut to the same size as before. I placed the die-cut panel above it, just to make a few pencil marks in order to ink blend some brown on the panel below where it will show through the top panel of the shaker card. 

On the background panel I ink-blended some Chocolate Brown ink also by Gina K Designs. I concentrated it into the area that would show through the top panel. Once that was looking good I added a bit of Nuvo Vintage Drops in Saddle Brown which in my opinion makes perfect caramel. I drizzled it just like a chocolate candy. 

Once that was completely dry, I added a piece of acetate to seal my shaker window shut. I also added two layers of foam tape to pop up my top panel leaving plenty of room for my shaker bits. 

For shaker bits, I used Wilton sugar crystals from the cake decorating isle. I wanted it to look like a salted caramel chocolate candy. I think it looks pretty yummy myself. 

The entire panel was added to an A2 size Simon Says Stamp Fog card base scored in a top folding portrait orientation. 

For the second card today, I am using the same materials only this card is not a shaker card. I used the back/front profile bunny from the same Some Bunny stamp set. I cut it using the same heavy weight cardstock. This time I wanted to make a Peep inspired bunny. I ink blended a little color using Gina K's Lovely Lavender ink and covered it with White glitter paste for my sugar. 
Once it was dry I popped it up on my card panel using foam tape. 

I hope I've inspired you to create something today.
