Throwback Thursday - Everybunny

Today's card uses one of my favorite Easter sets - Everybunny from Stampin' Up! I didn't have it in mind when I created the board for this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge but I enjoyed pulling it our for another go.

Although I know I should be using current stamps and dies available at Stampin' Up! I just can't all the time. For multiple reasons, including there are sets that I have that I love and won't part with. And I'm sure most of you also have older sets that you love. It's always great to get them out to use one more time.

Holiday sets in particular are like this for me. There are only so many themes for most holidays so I tend to keep the ones I love and get rid of the rest (which I  am doing with my de-stash give-away!) This set will not be going anywhere - sorry.

Occasionally, I will be pulling out some older sets to show you how to add new life to them. Sometimes all it takes is a new layout or patterned paper or embossing folder or sentiment. This card would have been better served with a new sentiment - I find the script font a little dated - but I did not have a current Easter sentiment that fit. All in all, I don't think it looks too dated with the embossing folder in the background. Embossed backgrounds seem to be everywhere now. And when I say "old" I mean something that is more than five years old. This set is from the 2011-2012 catalog. Things change in the paper crafting world but not that fast!

My advice - don't use a 10 year old stamp, 10 year old patterned paper, 10 year old color combos, 10 year old layouts at the same time. Pick one and update the rest. Your 10 year old whatever will look totally updated! See this post where I used an even older stamp (from 1996) and updated it.
