LRW Easter Card

I had so much fun making my card for this weeks challenge with Little Red Wagon! Jayne issued her first challenge and it was to make an Easter card. This was the perfect opportunity for me to use some of the new files I purchased from the Silhouette online store :)

I used a file to make a Center Panel Step Card.  I have seen these made but have never tried one myself.

I used my oval shape tool (on the Silhouette) and made my own basket.  I am having fun making my own cutting files.  I cut strips and layered them to make it look woven and then used my oval tool to make some eggs to fill my basket.

I found just enough of this green check ribbon  in my stash to wrap around and tie a knot (there wasn't enough to make a bow).  I added some twine and this little carrot embellishment that I had leftover from last year.

The grass and tulips are pieces from other files I had purchased in the past, but they worked perfectly for this card.

Thank you to Jayne for issuing this fun challenge and I hope you will visit the Little Red Wagon blog and see what everyone else creates.

  2. You're making your own cut files?!? Shut up! Okay, don't shut up 'cause maybe you need to make this your next Silhouette class and it would probably be hard to teach it without talking.

    Fabulous card! Wonderful shape and I love the basket, of course.

  3. Goodness me, gorgeous details! Love it....but wouldn't want to give it away!

  4. Awesome! So many details to look at!

    Can't wait for you to teach that class.... you always make it look so simple and then I get home, and... it's not (for me that is!)

  5. Loving all of the die cut goodies on here!! Fantastic card!!

  6. lovely...too awesome. Love all your little extras to make this special.

  7. Wow--this card has some fab details! LOVE that basket--impressive!
