Easter Bouquet Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have an Easter bouquet in a paper wooden basket.  



Die cut the 2nd and 3rd smallest Half Dozen Egg dies from heavy weight white card stock.  Spray the eggs with spray inks, Distress Oxide spray then a Dylusions Shimmer spray.  I used Speckled Egg and Calypso Teal, Kitsch Flamingo and Past Box Red, then Squeezed Lemonade and Tarnished Brass Mica Spray.  


Leaves and Flowers:

Spray heavy weight white card stock with pray inks, Distress Oxide spray then a Dylusions spray.  For the leaves Old paper and Dirty Martini and flowers Shaded Lilac and Funky Fuchsia.  Die cut the 2 smaller leaf dies out of the green paper.  Die cut the 2 smaller of the Layered Impatiens from the purple flowers.  Shape the flowers with a small stylist.  Turn the die cut upside down and pull the stylist from the end of the petal to the center.  Turn the flower over and press in the center.  Add glue to the center of the flower and press another flower on top, off centering petals.  On the back side of the leaves take a medium stylist and pull from the edge of the leave to the center vein.  Die cut the the Tall Frilly Leaf Stem die 2 times.  



Cut a piece of Woodgrain card stock 2" wide then cut into 1/4" strips.  Color each strip with Distress Brushed Corduroy and then ink up sides of the strip with Distress Ground Espresso.  Take 1 strip and add adhesive to the backside.  Adhere strips diagonal.  Weave in 2 strips and adhere the last weave together.  Trim off excess and cut a rounded corners at the bottom.  



Create a landscape A2 size card from cream textured card stock.  In the lower left corner adhere the Tall Frilly Leaf stems, then adhere the Exquisite Leaf Set.  Adhere the eggs to the bottom of the bouquet.  adhere the basket over the bouquet and adhere the flowers mourned the leaves.  Add a yellow Fairy Jewels.  Die cut the Happy Easter Posh Script die from purple Polished Foil paper pad.  Adhere to the right side of the card.
