Welcome! Thanks for stopping by today. I have been making lots of Easter cards lately and had an interactive idea pop in my head that I was very excited to try. I have a bunch of Pretty Pink Posh Easter themed products that I hadn’t inked up yet and this was the perfect opportunity to play with them.
I wanted to take this adorable basket die and turn it into a pop up card full of Easter eggs and goodies! To start, I stamped and colored images from Spring Eggs and Bunny Friends with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and set the images aside.
Here’s an aerial view of the card standing up so you can see what I did. I cut 2 sets of basket pieces from kraft cardstock and the trim from white. I ink blended the pieces for some dimension and interest, and then assembled those with liquid glue. Next, I took I strip of kraft cardstock and cut it to 1×5 1/2 inches and scored it at a 1/4, 2 1/4, 3 1/4, and 5 1/4 inches. I adhered the 1/4 inch flaps together to create a box. Next, I took a 2 1/2 inch strip and scored it at 1/4 inch from each side and inserted it in the middle of the box, adhering the flaps to the box sides. Then I glued one basket on each side of the box.
Next, I arranged the eggs in a trio and glued them together. I took another three eggs and arranged them the same way and glued them to the back of the first three, only at the top half. So things didn’t shift while I was manipulating them, I let the eggs dry a few minutes before adding glue inside the bottom half of them and sliding them onto the center of the box we created in the last step.
The Spring Eggs set has eight eggs so I had two left which I glued to the front of each side of the basket with a bunny on each side too. To finish things off I added a bow to the top of each side.
This card folds flat to fit in an envelope to mail and pops up to stand perfectly when it comes out! And because it’s symmetrical, both sides are decorated and pretty so it can sit out as a decoration. I think they would be super cute on the dinner table at each place setting or on a mantle of decorations too!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
