Spring Easter Basket

Spring Easter Basket

Today I have one more Easter card to share with you, it is the first design from my March class.  This fun and whimsical Spring Easter Basket card is my second design incorporating eggs, a basket and grass.  You can check out my first post here.

I decided to stay with the Long and Narrow size card, but went horizontal instead.  First I sponged billowy clouds onto the Whisper White card base.  I purchased the Rainbow Builder Framelits set specifically for the many clouds shapes it offers.  Two are cloud edges and two more small cloud shapes along with the rainbow arc shapes……super versatile.  Love it!

With the long basket  I decided to go with five eggs.  [TIP:  Odd numbers will almost always look the best.]  The five eggs (from the Balloon Adventures stamp set – vintage) were heat embossed in white and then colored with an aqua painter in traditional pastel colors.  After letting the eggs dry I punched them with the small balloon from the Balloon Bouquet punch.  It’s always great when you can make a tool a multi-tasker.  [grin] Then I trimmed away the balloon tie nubbin to create the egg tops.

The Crumb Cake basket was created by embossing with the AMAZING Sale-a-Bration Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  Love it!  I lightly sponged the embossing with Crumb Cake to add even more dimension and topped it with a Soft Suede band.    Also, adding to the whimsy is the Old Olive grass that is from the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits Set.

The “Happy Easter” is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set stamped with Memento Black and punched with the Modern Label punch.  You will be surprised to know that this is the ONLY thing that I popped with Dimensionals.  Lol!  With all the texture from the basket and the eggs slightly curled I felt that it had enough “height”.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and checking out my Spring Easter Basket post!  I hope you have a great Friday and Easter holiday weekend.
