Basket Of Eggs

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday day edition of the Blog.

The new release of Spring dies are available in the online store and 25% off for a limited time. There are 27 new dies in the release and each one is cuter than the next. They are perfect for your Easter and Spring card making.

Today, I am featuring the new Basket of Eggs die to create an Easter card. So let's get started on some details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:
I started my card this week with the card colors. Jeanne was hosting a color challenge on Splitcoaststampers, and her choices of daffodil delight (yellow), calypso coral and seaside spray (light blue) worked well for an Easter card. 
She also had an optional to use Washi Tape on our card. I just happen to have some wide washi tape in these colors, and I used it for my card background. This tape is 2 3/8" wide so it gives nice background coverage.  

I cut the basket of eggs in the challenge colors and used some designer paper cut with the 4th largest Stitched Circle die as the backdrop. 
I decided to stamp some splatters down the right side of my card in the coral color and added yellow ribbon to the left side for added interest. The Easter phrase is from the Bunny Kisses  & Easter Wishes die. I cut it 3x for more depth in coral cardstock. 
Yellow Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Image Panel" 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"

To complete the card, I scattered a few coral enamel dots. Well, that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you a new idea for using this lovely Easter die. See you next Saturday!
