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".
