The 20 Days of Easter - Day 3

It’s Friday! I hope you get some Easter decorations up this weekend. I know I will be doing that. I’ve been making all these decorations and now I need to start decorating.

I didn’t get to post yesterday and was going to in the evening but was so tired that I fell asleep to today there will be two posting so please join me twice.

I designed this bunny rabbit in Inkscape and then used my Sizzix eClips to cut him out. He turned out cuter than I thought he would. I had made him a year ago and didn’t like the way he looked so I just saved the file and forgot about it until this past week. I opened the file up and decided to do some tweaking since I’ve learned more about Inkscape in the past year.

I used Bazzil cardstock with color core and then instead of inking around the sides of the bunny, I sanded it. I also sanded his body parts to give it a different look and I like the way it turned out. The paper was red underneath but not a bright red.

I used an embossing folder to give the bunny's tummy some texture and I went over the raised area lightly with chalk ink.

If you want to design your own svg files for svg cutting machines, Inkscape is a free design program to download. You can find lots of videos on line on how to use it. It takes a little bit of time but once you learn, there is so much you can do and it’s FREE!

You can not only make cutting files but you can do blog buttons and digital layouts. I really like my Inkscape and I really, really like that it's free. :)
