Stampin' Up! Freezin' Fun Skiing Bunny Winter Card

I don't think this little bunny, from the Stampin' Up! Freezin' Fun Stamp Set, realized it wasn't on the bunny slope. ... was that a bad pun? lol



Seriously, look at this bunny flying down this deep slope! It looks like a ton of fun, doesn't it? Do I have the courage to do that? No, so I'll live vicariously through this little one.

My Inspiration

This card was inspired by my crafty friends Barry & Jay of Mitosu Crafts. While attending their live video tutorial, I crafted along and created the same card. Unfortunately, I left the card unattended and one of my cats nibbled on it... a lot! So, instead of recreating the exact card, I made this one featuring DSP (as opposed to ink blending the background as done on the original card) and thought I'd share Mitosu Crafts' video with you for additional inspiration.
