Sweet Easter Basket

Sweet Easter Basket

Hi Creative Friends,

Little Easter bunnies and brightly colored Easter eggs are right around the corner. To get ready for it here is a card design featuring a sweet Easter basket filled with all the goodies and the perfect stamp and die set for this was the new Iconic Easter by Papertrey Ink.


Let’s jump in!

Starting with an A2 white card stock card base, I cut an A2 white cardstock panel using the new Quilted Cover Plate and adhered it to the front of the card base. I also cut a plaid decorative panel from Pale Peony Bitty Big paper and I used the awesome Psalm Reflections: February die by Papertrey Ink (I just love this die!).

Next, I started working on the main event… the basket and its goodies. First, I cut a basket from white cardstock and used the Country Handbasket die. I colored it using Fine Linen and Cocoa Bean inks.

The new Iconic Easter stamp and die set is chocked full of Spring and Easter goodies. I cut out all the pieces from white cardstock and started stamping away. I used an array of ink colors which you can see in the supply list below. With the help of a stamp positioner, this was a cinch.

When all the Easter basket goodies were done, the basket was arranged and glued in place. I added a few tiny flowers and a bow that I had in my stash.

Before I could assemble everything, I needed a couple more elements. The first was to cut out the word “Spring” using the Larger than Life: Spring die. I cut out three of them from Candy Hearts pink paper, then stacked and glued them together.

The little scalloped rectangle that was included in the Iconic Easter die set was cut out, then ‘greetings’ was stamped onto it using my very favorite crisp black ink, Versafine Black Onyx.

Now all the pieces were ready to put together so I layered the pink plaid plaque on top (I also snuck in a little strip of Green Parakeet Bitty Big polka dot paper for a pop of color. The basket was added next with a few foam squares. The ‘greetings’ rectangle was trimmed and tucked in.

For the final step, “Spring” was added to complete this Easter basket surprise!
