I just had to do some more playing with these baskets made from Spellbinder dies. For this basked I used a small square of cream cardstock. I used a border punch on one side and cut out the “basket with a circle die. The handle was cut out of the same cream cardstock using two different size oval dies. I embossed all pieces with an embossing folder and sponged a little yellow ink and then some brown ink around the edges and across the embossing.
The yellow card base is cut out with a scalloped circle die, with the folded edge slightly inside of the cutting area. I rubbed the scalloped edges lightly with Versamark and dipped them in Log Cabin Embossing Powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It is a very rich brown with a gold sparkle in it. After heat setting the powder, I added some Crystal Ice iridescent white glitter, also from Sparkle N Sprinkle, on the inside part of the scallops. On top of this I layered a circle of aqua cardstock that I embossed and sponged with aqua ink on the embossing and brown ink around the edge. I added the basket to the bottom right side of the card, popping up the basket bottom and tucking some tiny plastic Easter eggs inside the basket.
For the images, I stamped and embossed the Happy Bunny [3435-426B], Easter Borders [3434-426G], and the Easter sign from Easter Accessories [3436-426E], using Versamark ink and the same Log Cabin Embossing powder. All of these stamps are part of Sparkle N Sprinkle's Easter Chicks Set. After heat setting them, I colored them with markers and cut them out. I actually made several of each image. I placed the adorable bunny on the left side of the circle. The little basket he is carrying was cut out from a second image and popped up on top of the original with foam tape. I cut out the hand and bent it up a bit so it looked more realistic. I only used the Easter Egg border from the borders set and popped up one across the bottom of the basket. Then I used a second one and cut it so part of it crossed over the feet of the bunny and the other part is at the top of the card. I added the little Easter sign to the basket handle and added a sparkly brown bow.
