Favorite Peeps

It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.  I have so many incredible goodies from Eyelet Outlet I want to use in my design team posts, I'm having quite a difficult time deciding upon which I want to work with first.

I finally decided upon the Clear Bumpy Bling and it couldn't have been a more perfect choice for the bunny tails on this Easter card.

I wanted to make the card smaller; to fit in a 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" remittance envelope as I like changing from the standard sized card from time to time.

I cut each bunny in a different color and embossed them with three different embossing folders. I think they were a perfect backdrop for the Bling.

The Bumpy Bling is adhesive backed, so they were a breeze to attach to the bunny "butts".  It's asking a lot of embellishments to hold firm to embossed backgrounds, and I often add liquid adhesive to strengthen the bond; but these held extremely well on their own.

Here's a closer look at the Bling.  I tried to capture how it catches the light, but I'm afraid I didn't do them justice.  Look at all that luscious dimension.

For something a little different, I colored-matched the sentiment to the bunnies on the front.

These bunnies remind me of Peeps.  I like that shape better than the original chicks.  Speaking of Peeps, did you know that more than 700 million are sold each year.  Wow, that's a lot of sugar!
