I trust everyone had a great Easter. I know it was a busy one for a lot of us, but it time to focus on new card ideas. I pulled into the driveaway from church yesterday and saw a bunny rabbit in my yard. I thought this is a perfect sign of spring and I have a great card to get started. So here is my bunny with his favorite food…… carrots. I hope he stays out of my garden.
These Stampin’ Up! products are going to retired. Oh, so sad! The Basket Brunch is not just for Easter, but all different occasions. Earlier this month for the Blog Hop, I did a Mother’s Day card using the Basket Builder with its’ framelit. Here is a spring card that is so easy to make.
Tips and Tricks
Color: Pumpkin Pie with Cucumber Crush is a must for the carrots. Then it is a matter of what will compliment the carrots and not over power it. Elegant Eggplant came to my rescue. I have seen numerous baskets in purple. Not all baskets need to be brown.
Stamp Set: Just about everything you need is in this card with the exception of the words. This is where Circle of Spring is used. Remeber you save 10% when you bundle.
- Basket Bunch
- Circle of Spring
Ink: One of the colors used here is retiring. I guess we will just need to find another green. Notice tere is a color missing. Keep reading.

Embellishment: Just two is all you need. In the picture, I did one with white ribbon, but I don’t think it is needed.
