Easter Basket of Flowers S-Fold Card

Created this Easter Card using an S-Fold style and pastel colors.

Used Cricut cartridge Create a Critter w/ Design Space & my new Cricut Explore Air. I like the way Design Space shows all the images on the cartridge. I had not noticed the Basket or Tulips on this cartridge before.

Used brown Kraft cardstock for basket. Embossed the basket with an embossing folder that has a basket weave look. Added the Tulips & Easter grass to the basket. Used Glossy accents on Tulip for dew look. Can you see the Easter grass?

Used Spellbinder die for the mat to hold Basket & for sentiment tag.

Stamped Impression Obsession sentiment. Sprinkled clear embossing powder for sparkle.

Added gems & ribbon.
