Easter Basket

With Easter just around the corner, I wanted to make something cute for my daughter.  I also had recently purchased these great egg dies from Cheery Lynn Designs that I have been dying to use.  I knew they would be great with some Glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I decided to create a basket look.  The yellow base is punched with a corner/border punch on three sides.  Then I trimmed off the excess at the top, allowing the corner loops to create a great place to loop some cute blue flower ribbon to make a handle.  I created the top layer by using a square doily die and some pink striped cardstock.  I popped this up, leaving the top section open to create a pocket.

I added two die cut eggs created by layering them on 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" and white cardstock.  I trimmed around them and then added glitter.  The blue egg is a combination of Cerise and Sunset and the yellow egg is a combination of Priceless Peacock and Shamrock.  I added three little chicks, using Baby Chick and Chick With Egg, from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  They are embossed using Teddy Brown Embossing Powder and colored with markers.  I used some SNS Brushable Glue to add a little Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft and popped them up on the front of the card.

The sentiment, Easter Wishes, is embossed using Sangria Star Embossing Powder, onto a die cut tag.  The ribbon on the tag is made to match by dying seam binding ribbon with reinkers.  It is attached to the back of a chocolate bunny so it can be pulled out of the pocket.

Thanks for stopping by.  If you looking for the flower tutorial, scroll down.  Have a great week!!
