Easter Card

When I hear the word "Easter" first thing that comes to my mind is the basket, a basket full of colorful eggs!
So I decided to make a colorful egg basket card. My source of inspiration was this clip art from about.com.




















































I started out with the making of the basket. I used Alli Bartkowski's technique of braiding the paper strips to construct the top and the bottom tiers of the basket. Then attached 1 inch paper strips to connect both. Lastly arranged few paper strips perpendicular to the 1 inch strips to form the basket.






















For the handle, I attached a tendril made out of a single paper strip to the either side of the basket.
I made the tendril following instructions from this video by Inna Dorman.






















I made grape rolls and pinched them slightly to one end so that they would form an egg like shape. Next, I shred wrapping paper into thin strips of 1 inch length and used them to fill the basket.






















Eventually, I stamped the words "happy easter" on the card.

    1. Thank you Christine. I chose the colors in order to get the look of a cane basket.
