Easter card with Tim Holtz bunny die

While the varnish was drying on my second altered clementine box I have made an Easter card, this:

And because I was have taken many pictures I can give you a tutorial  - what a nice girl I am! :-))

The basic was a kraft paper and I cut out the card from this:

I put white Distress paint to the edges (Picket Fence).

I cut out a one size smaller rectangle from a First Edition paper and with Potting Soil I stamped Tim's text on it. Then I inked the edges with Vintage Photo and after I softened with Picket Fence paint. (In the picture you can see the original paper before the alteration).

I cut out an oval shape and stamped roses with Picked Raspberry, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Then I inked the whole surface with Spun Sugar, the edges with Vintage Photo.

I softened this as well with Picket Fence.

The rabbit was cut out from kraft paper and here I used Picket Fence too.

The flowers was in my stash but I used a little Vintage Photo and Picket Fence before adding them to card.
