Friday Fun Day! Woven Easter Basket & Chick

Happy Friday!

I wanted to try something different and here it is! I started with a rectangle of scrap cardstock for the basket base and cut 1/2″ strips from various cardstock scraps and wove a little Easter basket. While this project was a little fussy to put together…it was a whole lot of FUN, too!

The woven Easter basket is adorned with a cute little chick, grass and flowers and finished off with a ribbon handle. The basket sits on an embossed panel and scalloped circle. The cute chick image also adorns the envelope and inside of the card.

Flowering Tulips Easter Card / Remember to Check out the Retiring and Last Chance List

flowering tulips easter card

Happy Monday! Here in the mid-Atlantic we started the weekend off with spring-like weather and by today it was snowing, and temperatures have dropped into the 30’s with 20’s expected overnight. I know it’s spring and the warmth will return very soon but it’s the end of March! I’m glad our strawberry plants are still safely tucked in with straw and they won’t be harmed by the frost. Okay, on to today’s card.

Today’s project uses the Flowering Tulips bundle and a greeting from the Easter Friends stamp set. I had so much fun playing with the Flowering Tulips bundle. I admit I had to watch a few videos to learn how to use the tulip dies. It’s not difficult but the shapes sure do look funny! It turns out that the dies place a score line on the larger tulip pieces which makes assembly easy once you know what to look for. Smart!

I chose Poppy Parade as a card base, accented by Petal Pink and the beautiful Flowering Fields 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. This paper is absolutely gorgeous!
