Easter basket

Hi everyone, Janja here!

Spring is here, and with it the upcoming Easter holidays, which offer us great opportunities for creativity.
For Easter card I used three CottageCutz dies. Two older and one from this year's release.
Let's see how it is made.

- CottageCutz dies: Calendar Icons (eggs), Sweet Spring Kitty (basket), Fancy Victorian Frame
- white card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5cm), folded
- corrugated cardstock: 5 x 5" (12,7 x 12,7 cm)
- patterned paper: 4.5 x 4.5" (11,4 x 11,4 cm)
- white and colored cardstock
- Distress ink pads: Worn Lipstick, Dusty Concord, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo
- Memento ink pads: Dandelion, London Fog
- ColorBox Frost White

First, we prepare cutouts: basket, Easter eggs and flowers. Shadow all the elements, and shape them.

Trim corrugated cardstock. Here and there apply white paint with a sponge.

Mount patterned paper on corrugated cardstock with double-sided adhesive tape.

Cut out a part of frame that will be used for decoration in the upper right corner.

With glue and self-adhesive foam pads fasten basket on the background and arrange flowers.

Thank you for joining me today. See you again next Tuesday.

Great choices on color and texture. All the shaping and shading you did makes the whole card wonderful. I wouldn't think of brown to use as a primary color on Easter cards necessarily but they way you did it is amazing - soft and lush.

Janja, what a creative card you've made! I love the use of corrugated card stock with the brushes of white. It is very striking behind the beautiful Easter basket. The colors used are so springy and beautiful! You created a fantastic piece of art, Janja!
