I used a pop-up mechanism for the sentiment. This is a great "thinking of you" card for any time of year...but since Easter is just a hop, skip and jump away, I added another sentiment to it and it takes a whole 'nother twist (bunny, multiply-get it?!)!I learned early on that there should be "no naked mail" and hence decorated the envelope as well (it's always nice to see the postal employees smile when they see the enve's!) I hope you have a great day, thanks for "hopping" by and, until next time, happy stamping and scrapping.

Help! They're multiplying like...
BUNNIES! My cards, that is! It's time for another Artful Legacy Design Team card...except this week I made two! I have to confess--I saw the sentiment for this card first! I absolutely love the feel of cotton! Living at the beach, there is no fabric cooler or that feels better on our hot, humid days than the feel of cotton (sku:AL342G) and when I saw the adorable (medium)bunny (HC9141)...I just knew with his "cotton"tail he would be the perfect match! Both these stamps can be found at www.artfullegacyrubberstamps.com -- hop on over & check them out! I simply layered the different colored cardstock to make the base of the card, leaving about 1/4" around each. I punched the oval and placed 3 images of the bunny on it with Pop-Dots between each layer to give it dimension & draw the eye to it. On the inside:
