I Played With Honeycomb Because I Carrot For You!

I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and play with some of the new goodies I bought at the Scrapbook Expo in Columbus on March 25th.

If you haven't ever seen the new image sets and honeycomb paper from Inky Antics, you really need to check it out! They are awesome!

Remember those honeycomb bells and other decoration you can buy for weddings?! Well now, you can make your own with the new honeycomb paper! Whoo Hoo!

My card today uses HoneyPop Easter set from Inky Antics, and the new honeycomb paper in orange and green.

Here, above, is the front of my card. I made this card for a male friend, but it would also make a great card for a child. I went with green, for my Easter card. The DP is from my stash. I distressed the edges of the DP with distress ink and a sponge applicator. The green cardstock panel is dry. embossed with a leaf pattern. I've used antique brass brads and a fancy metal spiral paperclip to embellish the corners of the embossed panel. The layout uses the sketch at Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment and rabbits are from the Inky Antics set. I punched it out using oval and scalloped oval punches by Stampin Up. Then, sponged around it in green ink and attached it to the card using foam mounting tape. The rabbit on the outside is also mounted with foam mouthing tape.

Here is the inside of my card:

Don't you just love how that cute little carrot pops right out at you as you open it? The bunny on the inside is from the Inky Antics set. I added sponging with green ink on the inside, and stamped some grass.

All images are highlighted with a tea green Promarker, with a touch of gray added to the ears.

I hope you enjoy this cute card as much I enjoyed making it!
