Bunny Card With Files to Share

Continuing with another old post from my old blog. I liked the bunny card I posted yesterday so much that I REALLY wanted to share it with people.  SO, I decided to create my own bunny card using basic shapes in my Make The Cut Software.  Although this file was inspired by the previous Bunny Card that I shared yesterday from a pattern in the Spring, 2011 edition of Paper Creations magazine (Issue 28) designed by Maricel Fabi, this one I created from basic shapes in MTC.  Isn't it amazing what you can do by welding a few circles, ovals, triangles, etc. together!  If you look closely, you can see that difference in my bunny's ears, the paws, the nose, the vest, and his overall basic shape.

So, if you thought, "shoot, I would have really liked to have had that pattern" yesterday - now you can have one almost like it but one that I feel comfortable sharing here.  I have included in the Make The Cut file both a welded shape for the card joined and folded at the ears as well as a single bunny shape for use on other projects. There are two files for svg users.  One is for the card its self and the "accessory" parts.  There is a second one for the single bunny shape with paws and feet only. Thanks to Maricel for her inspiration.

I used the "swiss dots" embossing folder to emboss the inner ears on this one.  I didn't add "buttons" to the vest, I created a vest with the "buttons" cut out.(My file contains both vests, one with the circles cut out and one plain.) I pop dotted the nose and the paw holding the flower.  My sample card appears to have his left arm (paw)  "bent" behind him but there is an extra arm to add on that side if desired. This card used 15mm goggle eyes with lashes.  Yesterday's card the eyes were 10mm.  I had previously tried 10mm size with lashes when I made my first one but didn't like it for some reason.  I do think with the larger eyes it works.

Please let me know if you enjoyed my file and let me see what you do with it.  I also think he would be cute made into a "she" bunny (add some lace to the bottom of the vest and make a dress and add a bow to an ear) or holding an Easter Egg or an Easter Basket.  Just use your imagination!

  6. Thanks for sharing, but your svg links don't work....

  7. Hi Christine - Thanks for stopping by and letting me know that you had problems with my links. I appreciate you taking the time to do so. However, I have double checked the links and have been able to download the files I shared just fine. I even had another person check and they had no problems either. Finally, they have been downloaded more than 50 times already and no other problems reported so I think the problem may have been on your end or a glitch with cyberspace at the time you tried to download them. You might try to download again. Thanks.

  8. Melanie I made this cute card and want to show you a photo, don't know how to here.

  9. Love the bunnies. Thanks so much.
