Easter Basket of Eggs Card

Created this Clean and Simple
(CAS) Easter Basket of Eggs Card 
basically using a digi image, stamped 
images and ribbon.

Here in Central TX it rained Easter
afternoon so I had time to craft and
decided to make this CAS card that
I can use next yr.

The base of the card is 4" x 4".
Printed the free Avery digi image
of the Easter basket on white 
cardstock. Cut the Easter basket
out. Hardest part for me was cutting
the white away from the area where
the handle is but with Tim Holtz 
scissors and slow snipping I was 
able to cut it. Attached the Easter 
basket of eggs to the card using 
foam for 3D look. Stamped some 
eggs from the BasiGrey stamp set 
onto purple cardstock. Snipped the 
purple cardstock to have a banner/tag
look. Added a sentiment with hand 
calligraphy of Happy Easter on 
purple cardstock. Attached
the banner/tag sentiment to the
front of card below the Easter basket
with foam for 3D look. Stamped the 
BasicGrey bunny onto purple 
cardstock for the inside of the card. 
Used a Fiskars 2" circle punch on 
the stamped bunny.  Attached the
circle with stamped bunny to inside
of card with adhesive.

Photographed the card with my 
Easter basket.
