Here Comes Poochie Cottontail

Hello Everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. My week is almost at an end (my weekend falls on Tuesday and Wednesday), so tomorrow is my "Friday" (affectionally known on my team as MonFri) TGIMF! LOL!

I made this card for TCP Tuesday challenge. This was a technique challenge and the fabulous Julie Masse challenged us to make a shaped card...no rectangles or squares (and even a circle card would be considered "blase"). I pondered what I would do. Inspiration then hit! Armed with the knowledge that my recent TCP order had already shipped, I knew that a certain new swanky grass die would be in my hot little hands by Thursday or Friday at the latest (Alma ships super fast considering my order was placed Monday night that same week). The inspiration: A beautiful 2003 Whitewashed Longaberger basket. The end result: An easter basket shaped TCPTUES card complete with grass and easter eggs!


The basket strips are sponged with PTI Chamomile ink and then weaved (just like a real basket) onto the card front (the easter basket template was downloaded and purchased from The Cutting Cafe). Add in a cute TCP easter set (Spring Fling) and a pair of swanky new CutUps grass and banner die and some scrunched seam binding and you have the makings of a super cute card! One of these days, I'll be able to invest in a super good camera (or maybe learn to use the camera I have better) so you can see how super shimmery this is IRL (I used some Smooch Spritz). The pink easter egg is also embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder and Poochies car and the little easter eggs trailing behind are all glittered up with Diamond Stickles.


Hope your week is wonderful!


Linda

This card is charming, Linda. The woven basket holding colorful eggs just screams Easter. The bow is the perfect finishing touch. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
PS - I feel that I need help with my photography skills, too. Your photo shows all the details clearly though.
