Festive Friday #11 - Easter!!

Hi Everyone

I'm SO HAPPY to share with you that I am one of the newest members of the Design Team for Nicole Derendorf’s Festive Fridays!! I'm so VERY excited to be part of her wonderfully talented team and to be able to share some "Festive" creations with you. Make sure you check in there every Friday to get the details of the challenge and to take a look at the lovely things on offer from the Design Team. I really hope you will play along with us!! :)

This week's challenge is EASTER!.....so of course, I'm going to do something involving chocolate. ;)

Every year, I make a little Easter present for my friends' kids and this year my own little boy will be old enough to enjoy some chocolate eggs so I'm going to make an extra special one for him too. This year, I thought I'd do up a little basket for them. These are so easy to do and they only need 3 Scallop Envelopes cut from the Stampin' Up! Scallop Envelope Die (pg 159 in the catalogue #113462). I cut them from Chocolate Chip cardstock then put them through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and it gave it a lovely 'basket weave' look.

The decoration is some 'eggs' from the 2" Oval Punch, some Boho Blossom Punch flowers and ribbon. I also put a few flowers across the handle as an added effect. (Not sure why this next photo looks so 'blue'????)

....and yes, some eggs were damaged in the execution of this photo-shoot. :O

If you want more info regarding how to make the basket, just email me and I'll be happy to share. :)

Materials used:
Ink - Crumb Cake (for sponging around the "eggs")
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, Everyday Enchantment DSP, Pear Pizzazz DSP, Lucky Limeade, So Saffron.
Accessories - Calypso Coral ribbon, Pearls
Tools - Scallop Envelope Die, Scallop Border Punch, Paper Cutter, 2" Oval Punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Itty Bitty Punches, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Sticky Strip, Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
