Spring Basket with Bunnies

Hi, Lois here with my last Easter card of the season.  I used one of the dies from the Spring/Easter release (Spring Basket), as well as a basic shape die I recently acquired -- the Nested Wacky Stitched Rectangles.

To start my card I cut the Spring Basket images from a piece of white cardstock and placed them on my sticky board.  For some reason they look blue on this photo; but, please believe me, they are white.

Using some Copic markers, I colored each one of the pieces.  The packaging shows the basket all in one color, but I wanted to make it look a bit more realistic.

I then cut the pieces for my card base:

White cardstock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Purple cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4" and 3" x 4"
Patterned paper - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
The pale purple cardstock was cut using the second largest Nested Wacky Stitched Rectangle die.

I layered the patterned paper on the larger purple rectangle and adhered them to the white card base.  Then I assembled the die-cut pieces onto the pale purple die-cut piece and adhered it to the smaller purple piece.

This was then attached to the card base using large foam pop dots, and a small Easter greeting was stamped in the corner.  You can see how these foam dots, as well as the ones behind the chick and tan bunny, give the card some dimension.

Here again is my finished card.
