Easter is fast approaching, especially if you want to make some homemade cards to send to friends and family. Here is one I had SO much fun making! In fact, maybe I had too much fun…sometimes you have to know when to stop! But I love this Easter card!
First I used the Big Shot to cut a basket with the Baskets & Blooms Die #113484. It really cuts two and you can put them together to make a 3D basket…but I just wanted a flat one for this card. I also embossed the die cut with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder #119976 to make it look more like a basket-weave. To fit on my card a little better, I cut off the flap on one side of the basket and then scored 1/2" on both sides to fold back. That way I could attach the basket to the card with Sticky Strip and still have an opening at the top. To make the chick and the eggs in the basket I used my cute set "A Good Egg" #114974. The eggs are first punched out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch #119859. The small eggs in the grass are just punched out of designer paper and card stock with the smallest Oval Punch #119863, some cut in half to make then shorter.
