Sunny Challenge 74/13

March 3, 2013

SC-07413Here we go again with another great challenge.  This week Vicky has presented us with a great sketch and the theme is Easter.  I know that you all need Easter cards for your family and friends, or maybe you need to create a scrap page to show off the photos you took of the children/grandchildren hunting for eggs last year.  Maybe you need to create something for the children to put their collected eggs in.  Well this challenge is your opportunity to share with us all.010

I started my card by embossing a piece of Very Vanilla card with two embossing folders, Perfect Polka Dots on the left two thirds of the card and Stripes on the right narrow panel.  I masked the join in the two embosing folders by adding a strip of Tempting Turquoise card which is punched using the Dotted Scallop Border Punch.  I attached the Very Vanilla card to scored and folded Pacific Point card.  I created my basket by cutting 1cm wide strips of Crumb Cake card and sponging the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  Then I weaved them together and laid them on top of a piece of Crumb Cake card which I cut using the Top Note Die011Once I glued down the woven card, I trimmed the Top Note to the size I wanted to fit on my card front.  I created the handles by cutting Crumb Cake card using two of the Oval Framelits to create a narrow piece and then sponging the edges using Crumb Cake ink.  Then I punched Raspberry Ripple, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise and Regal Rose card using the Extra Large Oval Punch and the Small Oval Punch.  I embossed the ovals using various Embossing Folders and then layered them behind the top of the Top Note basket.  I stamped “happy easter” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Pacific Point ink and punched the greeting using the Large Oval Punch.  I attached the greeting to a Raspberry Ripple Scallop Oval and then to the card front using dimensionals only under the right hand side.

I am really happy with the way this card turned out.  It is a little time consuming but sometimes it’s nice to just play around and see what effect you can get with a little effort.

Now for some more inspiration pop on over to Sunny Challenges and Creations and see what the Design Team and Guest Designers have created for you.  Once you have made your card, 3d item or scrap page, then add it to Mr. Linky.  As always we look forward to seeing your entries.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Lots of fun — could be used for Mother’s Day, etc., since I don’t do much Easter, either. Thanks for sharing.
