Well I couldn't think of anything original didn't help that I obviously didn't read the options for Clear lots of ideas now popping in my head. I took the easier way just using acetate.
I used an Lifestyle Whimsy embossing folder on the acetate, to be honest it was seeing this technique demo-ed encouraged me to buy Big Shot many years ago. But the thing with acetate its a b****r to photograph.


I had a real problem with choosing a Clearly Besotted item since no sooner do they arrive in Simon Says Stamp they fly off the shelves but I decided to use Easter Hoppy stamp and die set if only to prove an Easter rabbit is not just for Easter.
The paper is from Carta Bella Sew Lovely but I just used the pink dotty paper for the card as well as for my bunny. I added the middle of the Spellbinders Floral Oval for my bunny to sit in. The Hello die is a Simon Says Stamps exclusive and so is the Baby word but I cut that one out for times and stuck them together using the Xyron. By doing this it became the card stop for the easel card and the flowers which are a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch held the other corner but any flowers would do.
To finish some pearls on the acetate which also helps with the photography.


So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
