Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Cuteness today!
I wasn't sure what die to feature this Friday Die Day until my work colleague
announced she was organising a baby shower...yes they seem to have arrived in the UK now!
I did a bit of research about baby showers, it seems they are a party before the
baby is born, games are played, gifts exchanged - it is assumed to mean the expectant
mum is 'showered' with gifts - very nice too!

I thought the new Die D-Lites Bunny fitted the bill perfectly.
The die measures approximately 1¾ x 3½“ and this is how it looks cut/embossed...
in pink...yes, it's a girl!
I selected a Square Petal Top Box, die cut in white linen cardstock and 
wrapped around a piece of pink satin ribbon.
Adhered the bunny to Classic Ovals Lrg.
His ears are off the top of the oval and look cute bent forwards a little.
I then added a few tiny flowers, leaves and pink gemstones.
Attached the oval with 3D Foam Squares.
The ribbon can slide off to open the box.
A close up photo - I love the scroll design of the Bunny
Bunny is available to pre-order on the website, I've got these arriving from
the USA as soon as they are available.
Be sure to take a look at the other pre-orders too - some really gorgeous dies on their way.

Take care friends and have a lovely weekend.

Hi Christine. What a cute rabbit and I love the gift box idea, it is gorgeous:) Baby showers certainly seem to be getting more popular over here don't they, but I have never been to one. Have a good weekend. Take care.

Hello Christine
Nice idea from you to make a baby box and the little Rabbit is cute.
Not sure about all these American things, we already have Halloween turned into more than All Saints Day.
Soon it will be Harvest Festival becoming Thanksgiving Day !!!!
Sorry about the rant.. but its UK not US!
Take care
Love Marg

Very pretty die, would be good for spring and easter cards, although I can never understand how the bunny hands out the eggs, another American idea.

Hi Christine,
Gorgeous little bunny die, can think of many ideas to use this little cutie with.
I wonder how many American 'traditions' that we will end up following?!
They do seem to find any excuse to 'celebrate' don't they, not necessarily a bad thing,
I know of a few people that have had a baby shower!
Well I must go and try to make a tiny little space big enough to make a card, my craft room looks like it's been burgled and they have tipped every draw out onto my desk! Haha

Hi Christine
I just love the rabbit die. I also love the box and how you have decorated it under the rabbit. It all looks very spring like on a cold chilly day.

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. What an absolutely adorable bunny. It's just perfect for a new baby too. I wish baby showers had been around in my day - I'd have had four! xxMargaretxx

Cute little bunny :)

I *did* actually have a baby shower when I had my first son - he was born in Southern California and yes, I was showered in gifts.

It's one of the few traditions I like - never did/still don't like the big Halloween fuss!!

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine, This little gift box is fabulous, and the bunny looks so beautiful, this would be ideal for my youngest Granddaughter who is having her first baby, a girl, in March. I love it !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
