DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #221: Basket Bunch Bundle & SAB Glimmer Paper!
March 08, 2017
It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Home Sweet Home" challenge.
I guess it's obvious what the theme is for this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge...Easter. I knew I wanted to play with the Basket Bunch Bundle and it did not disappoint. This bundle is SO much fun with it's cute images for both Easter & spring. So happy I got it.
For my card, I actually started out making a regular full-size card. But when it was done, something felt off. So I trimmed it down to a 4-1/4" square card and I'm pleased as punch with it! See details below.
Easter Basket Bunch card (4-1/4" square)
- Score 7-1/8" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 3-1/8" and fold.
- To the inside right edge, adhere 3/4" x 4" piece of Falling In Love Designer Series Paper (the basket weave looking pattern) & 1/4" x 4" strip of Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack (Sale-a-Bration FREE choice). Adhere entire folded piece to 4-1/4" square panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.
- Create basket: stamp basket image (Basket Bunch stamp set) with Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. Die cut using Basket Builder Framelit Dies - also cutting a Crumb Cake handle. Die 3 eggs from Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack. Assemble basket and eggs using Stampin' Dimensionals, then adhere to card front.
- Tie a bow with Metallic Ribbon Combo (Sale-a-Bration FREE choice), adhere with glue dot.
- Stamp greeting with Crumb Cake ink on 1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. Trim ends and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Above is the back side of the basket. I just used Stampin' Dimensionals to assemble it all together. A little messy, but it works. I always tell people, "don't take my cards apart, as you may be disappointed at what you'll find".
Ah...that's better. It's beautiful from the front. This card even got an ooh, aah from my hubby. Now that's saying something!
