Easter Swap

I made this card for a swap that I'm doing with some friends. The card is Pool Party, punched with a Martha Stewart lattice border punch. I added a 1.5" strip of Twitterpated DSP on the inside to peek through the lattice. You can see it here:

On the front of the card, I used a framelit to cut a large scalloped oval of Primrose Petals and embossed it with the polka dot folder. The image is an Inkadoo stamp. I stamped it once in Stazon black (you can't see it) and traced that image with Bashful Blue then used the next smaller framelit to cut it out of white card stock. I stamped the image again in Soft Suede on Barely Banana card stock to give it that straw look. I cut the basket out and, using the black stazon image as a guide, adhered it to the oval with dimensionals. I stamped the image again in Gumball Green on white and cut out just the contents and stuck that on the basket for the Easter "grass". Then I stamped the image once more in Soft Suede on white and colored in the eggs with various markers. When that was done, I cut out the eggs and stuck them as a final layer on the basket. A Pool Party ribbon completes the image.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny wishes and is stamped in Primrose Petals on white. It is punched with the Word Window punch and attached to a piece of Primrose Petal card stock punched with the Modern Label punch.

The little bunny is an embellishment that I found at Michael's.
