Chocolate Bunny

I am back with another Easter card which I had a lot of fun making and I am super excited to share with everyone. Every time I go to Walmart around Easter time I always see these huge chocolate bunnies that are covered in gold foil in a box. I always thought who can possibly eat all that chocolate?(I did not know they were hollow until my husband told me) anyways they always catch my attention, so I decided that I would make a card in there honor. Let me know what you all think about. I really love how it turned out.

For the bunny I used gypsy wandering cartridge cut at 2.50 (in order to make the bunny look like an actual chocolate bunny I had to cut the bunny out 8 times and glue them all together to get it to look thick.)
I recently purchased the cutest paper stack from hobby lobby it's called Sweet Treats from DCWV and that is where the brown and flower like paper came from the green paper is just from a pastel pack I purchased at Walmart.
The ribbon I also purchased at hobby lobby in the easter section
As far as the saying inside the scalloped circle( medium punch the paper studio) I just typed it up on my computer and then printed it and punch it.
Last but not least and my favorite part is the gold wrapper around my chocolate bunny. Well to make a long story short I was messing around with some mod podge today and it suddenly hit me. I got some aluminum foil cut it to the length I needed it then I covered it with mod podge and while it was still wet I sprinkled martha Stewart gold glitter all on it. At first I was worried that it wouldn't stick well enough when I was wrapping it around my bunny but it held up really well actually. I will try to make a quick video demonstrating this when I get back on Friday from a work trip. In case anybody wants to see how to do it.

This is the inside of my card again I used DCWV paper from the sweet treats stack I like the fact that it fits with my chocolate theme. The paper has the words chocolate all over it. Not sure where I got the stamp from.

I even made a matching envelope to go with my card. Here is my chocolate bunny out of his beautiful foil. Doesn't he just look yummy?

Inside liner of envelope even matches

Envelope and card.
