Hello crafty friends. I don't know about you but I always do a little happy dance when new Doodlebug cutting files become available. This month I got to play with the new Hippity Hoppity collection and the Carrot Car cutting file.

  1. After cutting chipboard stencils for the car and bunny on my Silhouette. I mounted them to foam board. Then cut them out using a scroll saw.  The bunny and leafy section of the car were covered with cardstock first.
  2. Below you can see how the 3 car sections were sandwiched together to form the finished piece. 
  3. The sides of the car were covered with chipboard then patterned paper, along with the front and back.
  4. The car wheel covers were cut out and covered with paper then attached to each side. Wood wheels were painted purple and then attached to the car and a wood oval base.

Some grey chunky twine was used to outline the bunny's face, ears and paws. I also created a small chipboard steering wheel with my Silhouette, so she could steer her way around town.

I layered some basket and chick doodle-pop stickers together with a "Easter Blesssing sign. Then these were added to the base of the project along with some Easter egg sprinkles.

A little stitching was added around the car door and some doodle-pop flowers were used to add some color and texture to the car. I love the new wood grain petite prints and think they worked well for the  body of the car.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  Happy Easter, everyone! :)
