Easter cards & baskets – three of each to be exact – are shared in today’s post!
Quick Easter Cards
(Tomorrow’s post will have religious Easter cards so stay tuned … today its all about the bunnies & chicks!)
The first two cards have the same Crumb Cake bases with a Striped Embossed layer and a Circle Stitched Framelit. The picnic basket from the Picnic with You stamp set is popped it up with extra dimensionals at the top so it could hold a little bunny eraser… so, not only do you have a cute card, but you are giving a little gift as well.
For this card, attach the grass from the Picnic with You stamp set to the Whisper White card stock before running it through the Big Shot with the Stitched Shape Circle. This cute bunny is from the We Must Celebrate stamp set. Did you know you can cut your stamps apart to use them separately – and, of course, you can still use them together too. I cut the bunny off from the main stamp of four animals in a line!
This card pieces together some stitched circles to create an Easter chick. It is made with scraps of Color Theory Designer Series Paper & the Bubbles & Fizz Papers. It reminds me of an appliqued baby quilt.
The stitched framelits are definitely my most used set of Framelits – did you noticed they were used on all three of these cards?
Easter Treat Baskets & Bags
Making little favors is so much fun. Here are three ideas you can make them to delight the little kids in your life – or create these with those kids to give out to others. (These would be great little favors to make for a nursing home, for instance.)
This adorable little treat bag holds about 3 little chocolates – just the right amount for a table favor or small gift.
Cut out a 4 1/4″ square from my favorite Designer Series Paper – the Picture Perfect Birthday paper. Score at 1″, 2″, 3″ & 4″.
To create the bottom, you want to cut on the score lines to the 1″ mark. Then just fold the paper. Tear & Tape is great for sealing the side of the bag.
Squeeze the top and added a binder clip to hold it closed and decorate with a glimmer paper oval and a little bunny.
The clear treat boxes are perfect for jelly beans or other treats. The grass from the Picnic with You Bundle wraps around the box and the cute little bunnies are from the Hello Easter stamp set.
Of course, we can’t do Easter projects without an Easter basket!
To get the aged, textured basket look, ink one side of the Basket Weave folder (the side that has the SU! logo) with Crumb Cake Ink before running through the Big Shot.
My paper is 3 1/4″ and then scored it at 1 1/4″ on all 4 sides. When you cut along the score line on two sides, you’ll be able to fold it into a basket shape. You can make these in any size depending on how much you want to put in them.
Add a handle and the bunny from the It’s a Good Day set and fill the basket with goodies.
Tim’s Peeps Card
Tim used Peeps for his card inspiration. He punched out circles to create the body of a bunny. The daisy punch creates the ears of a bunny. To add a bunny tail, Tim cut some cotton from a face swab and added it to the back of the card.
