Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I share an Easter card using many of the new release dies from January CHA! The A2 Frames are awesome for making card bases and actual frames for your cards. I cut the dotty frame by positioning the largest frame with the 3rd largest frame on my die cut platform and making both cuts at the same time while running it through my machine. I use a magnetic platform but I've also used tape in the past to make this cut.
Next I cut several colors of the basket so that it could be cut apart to create a decorative basket full of eggs. I layered my cuts so that the bow was the top most piece, then the basket with some eggs cut to go on top of others to give dimension. A bit of charcoal chalk was lightly colored along edges to further accentuate the dimension. The basket was layered in the grasses and my little chicks were flocked and a wee giggle eye was added for some fun! The Happy Easter sentiment was cut apart to fit on the top and bottom of the frame.
