The new Dashing Holiday and Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 prints make it easy to build a lovable Snow Bunny.  Add a greeting from the new Mistletoe Swag Clear Stamps - and you're ready for Christmas!  Hello, Jean Okimoto here - combining a favorite Deep Edge Die Set with our great holiday prints.

Attach adhesive label paper - or a sticker sheet - to wool-blend white felt.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps liquid adhesives from soaking through.  Cut the Snow Bunny pieces from the felt.  Cut eyes from black cardstock.  Cut the decorative pieces from the Dashing Holiday and Dashing Stripes and Dots 6x6 packs.  Although it's hard to see in the photo,  the scarf is cut from the red striped pattern.  

The Rectangle Basics set is temporarily out of stock at Memory Box - it may be available from your favorite Retailer.  Cut the background rectangles from the holly print (4-½" x 3-¼"), red cardstock (1-¾" x 3") and the green dots (2-½" x 1-¼").  

Stamp the greeting - from the new Mistletoe Swag Clear Stamps Set - on red cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine.  Emboss it with detail clear powder. Cut it with the smallest Rectangle Basics die. 

Here's a tip I've shared in classes...start the heat-embossing on the reverse side of the cardstock or paper, then finish it off from the right side.  Pre-heating it from the back starts the process - and finishing it on the front creates a great glossy image and minimizes scorching. 

Score, fold and cut an A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") card of white cardstock.  Assemble the card - use foam dots for the greeting.

This design works for any occasion - change the papers and colors and eliminate the scarf for a baby or birthday card,  It's a great for thank-yous and birthdays too - or just to say hello.  I like combining  the Memory Box products from different releases, using products in unexpected ways...and sharing these ideas with you!  

Thanks for supporting Memory Box - and for your thoughtful comments.  I appreciate it!

Thanks for stopping by...see you on Thursday!

What fun layering to complement this cutie!

He's adorable!

Don't get me wrong, I love snowmen, but this bunny is so cute on this card!

If this isn't the definition of adorable, I don't know what is. LOVE!!

Wonderful colors, Jean! I like the snow bunny a lot better without the crazy hat. See you soon, thank you for the inspiration.
