Sweet Bunny Baskets with the Grass Stitched Circle Frame and half of the Cracked Up Egg
by Anne Thompson

I decided to create some Easter baskets for cards this week using the SWEET BUNNY die 99905, the GRASS STITCHED CIRCLE FRAME die 99924, and the zig-zagged half of the CRACKED UP EGG die 99951.  I also used one of the ovals from the STITCHED OVAL LAYERS set of eight dies 30069 and the HAPPY BIRTHDAY CURSIVE die 99949 for a "happy day" sentiment on  Key Lime notecards.



to make the first bunny basket card

  • Die cut the zig-zagged half of the Cracked Up Egg from Lawn Fawn plaid paper.
  • Die cut the Grass Stitched Circle Frame from Key Lime dot paper twice and again from a scrap of Key Lime notecard.  Glue the layers together, offsetting them a bit for showing more blades of grass.
  • Adhere the patterned half-egg on top of the grass circle, lining it up so the frame acts as a basket handle.
  • Die cut a large oval from the set of Stitched Oval Layers dies using white cardstock and adhere it to the Key Lime notecard.
  • Die cut the Sweet Bunny from off-white cardstock.  Mark a scrap of the same paper under his head where the eyes and nose are, color those spots using markers, then adhere it to the back of his head.
  • To attach the basket for some dimension, put two pop-dots or other foam adhesive in the center of the basket and tape or glue around the side and bottom edges before sticking onto the white oval layer.  This lets the basket bow out from the card front.
  • Tuck the bunny into the basket with tape or glue on his bottom half and a pop-dot behind his head.
  • Add a bow on the basket handle.
  • Die cut the Happy Birthday Cursive from more of the Key Lime dot paper.  Snip off the "day" to create the "happy day" sentiment at the top of the white oval.



The basket for this card is assembled in the same way using layers of the Key Lime dot paper.  The top half of the notecard is covered with Key Lime dot paper and the basket is adhered to a white paper doily on the notecard.

Happy Crafting!  Remember that Easter is on April 1st this year so you still have plenty of time to create!
