I wanted to make some Easter baskets for a very good friends two beautiful granddaughters. I had seen they style I wanted to copy on Sue Nelson's site, Heart Prints. If you have not visited Sue's site before she is just amazing and very inspirational in her use of the cuttlebug!
Anyway, the Easter Basket is in Sue's gallery. I've changed the size, using 9" square Core'dinations CS and scored at 3" and 6". The remaining instructions are shown on Sue's site. I've used the cute Easter Chick stamp from Elzybells and coloured with Copics before cutting with circle nestabilities and mounted onto a darker purple scalloped circle. The handle has been punched both sides with my MS doliy lace punch and has been finished with a little bow. The basket was filled with some shredded tissue paper before the contents (as shown) were added.
My friend, Lyn, was overjoyed with them and very touched by the thought.
The card below has been CASE'd from a card that Paula Williamson created for an Elzybells Challenge. I loved it so much that I had to try and recreate it myself! As Paula did, I used the cute Easter Egg Fun stamp which I coloured with copics.
I hope everyone has a fantastic Easter and is enjoying the break. Jon and I have all of next week off, so I hope to be able to make a few more cards as my New Years Resolution of making cards every week (including Xmas cards) is going out the window!
