One Image, Two cards

Hello! On Saturday, Shirley's 2 Girls hosted Digi Day on SNR.  Everyone was given this cute little bunny digi to work with. I love little bunnies so I ended up coloring several to send to my nieces  and nephews for Easter.  Both images were colored with Copic markers. The first one uses Kioshi paper from Basic Grey and some pearl Dew Drops. I used a Fiskars Threading Water border punch on the green piece of paper and then inked around my image panel with CTMH Hydrangea ink.

When I was a little girl, my younger sister would often eat her candy very quickly and then help herself to mine...without asking. She nibbled on my chocolate bunny ears more than once. I swear that girl could sniff out chocolate no matter where it was hidden!  So now that we are adults I send her or her son a card every year that references bunnies with missing ears. If you want you can check out last years card here. To make her card this year, I printed off the same image as above but after coloring it, I cut out the entire image and then used my scissors to make it look like someone had taken a big bite out of his ear. My papers here are DCWV, the eyelets are from my stash and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
I have had several people asking for the directions for my seed packet holder. I don't have a printed template, it is just the measurements. I will post those this weekend and I will try to take pictures as I do,  sort of like a mini tutorial.
