Happy Easter ~ Maja Design~
Hello everyone! Today I am sharing an Easter project with you. As Easter is only a few days away, I was inspired to create a project that embraced the season. For both my card and basket I used papers from the Vintage Spring Basics Collection.
I bought a chipboard basket from my local craft store and pulled it apart (the handle). Using scrap paper, I traced a template before transferring it onto the 12” Vintage Spring Basics 3rd of March paper. I had some button brads in my stash that coordinated perfectly with the papers which I used to reconnect the handle back onto the basket. I used a Prima white edger to ink the raw edges. This was so quick to alter and the end result is so cute!
To create my card I used papers from the Vintage Spring Basics paper pad. I always pull out the possible papers that I might use and play around with them for a while until I find a combination that I like.
My sentiment is the reverse label from 2nd of March paper...don’t throw away your scraps...they come in so handy!
As you can see, I used a few dies here. I used a Spellbinders D-lites Filigree Egg die and Elegant Ovals with the centre removed to frame the egg. I backed the egg using a paisley paper from the paper pad to add another layer that was subtle enough to provide a contrast to the yellow paper. I framed the egg with various flowers from stash that I have had for quite a while. I had some daffodils which work perfectly with my sentiment. I die cut some leaves using Poppy Stamps Lorelai Leaf die and shaped them using a stylus and moulding pad from my Susan’s Garden Tool Kit.
