Good Sunday morning. I have a sweet Easter project to share with you today featuring the Impression Obsession Basket, Bunny Set and Egg Set paired with the Butterfly Set, Leaves and Stems, Grass Border and Small Grass Border.
I cut the basket twice using vanilla cardstock, one for the base of the basket and the second so I could cut the handle and top rim to layer over the base to add dimension. I lightly sponged antique linen ink all over the basket using my mini applicator. I added darker brown over the embossed weaving lines using a dry brush with ink gathered by swiping across the ink pad. I cut the handle and rim of the basket off the second basket and glued it over the base with glossy accents.
I cut several sections of the grass border, cut them to fit inside the opening of the basket and then layered and attached them with glossy accents starting from the back highest layer and worked my way forward to the shorted layers.
Three of the grass layers were attached to the back section of the basket and the two shorter front layers were attached to the front inside of the basket. This allowed an opening between the layers to tuck the bunnies and eggs down to appear inside the basket.
I attached the bunnies in the grass with glossy accents and tucked the brightly colored eggs in the grass around them. I inserted a few stems with tiny flowers made with 1/8” punched circles and my tiny tipped stylus and molding pad to add softness and another element of color.
I cut the frame using Matting Basics A and B and my beloved magnetic platform. I attached the small grass border to the inside of the frame, applied mounting tape all around the frame and attached to the card base. I tucked the bottom of the basket in behind the grass and attached with ATG adhesive and mounting tape. I couldn’t resist adding a few butterflies and a tiny floral embellishment to the front bunny’s neck for the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
