Digging for....eggs?!

hoppy Easter

Hello, Tuesday. Hello, peeps. Ready for another Clearly Besotted Stamps sneaky peeky at the February release? I hope so! Remember: all new stamp sets and dies are available to purchase from Wednesday February 5th @ 22:00 GMT.

New to the sneaky peeks? Check out my previous peeks here, and here (said in my best air hostess voice and pointing to the exits LOL!)

Today's card takes two new sets, 'Garden Fresh' and 'Hoppy Easter', to create a punny, interactive card. Interactive you say? Well sure it is. Let's just do some digging; that cute rabbit is looking hungry:

Oh. What do we have here? This rabbit was hoping (or should that be hopping? Someone please stop me!) up for a carrot, but I think we've just struck Easter-gold here:

Ha! Totally punny. Totally interactive. Totally can't wait to post this Easter card in April LOL!

tips and tricks
  • The green panel of patterned paper is raised up on foam pads and underneath I've created a vertical path with the foam pads as a border so the spade/egg doesn't slide across the card. Wish I'd taken a picture now! 
  • The sentiment looked lost stamped directly on to the patterned paper so I simply stamped it on white cardstock, trimmed it down and adhered it to the front.
Just to stop you from scrolling up and down the pictures, here's an action replay of the moment this rabbit scored an Easter egg instead of a carrot:

The rabbit, sentiment and Easter egg are from the set, 'Hoppy Easter'. The cute carrots, spade and spade die are from 'Garden Fresh'.

That's enough fun and peek-a-booing from me today, but if you want to check out some more sneaky peeks of the CBS February release then hop across to Stephanie who has more fabulous projects and links the rest of the CBS DT sharing sneaky peeks. You won't be disappointed! :)
