HSS Easter Theme Challenge #63

Can you believe that Easter is less than two weeks away?! Time is flying by this year. With the upcoming holiday comes a new theme challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments . 
(Isn't that bunny yummy looking?!)
 This week I was asked to create a card/gift set. 
I came up with this basket and coordinating card collection. 
 I saw this basket idea from Geraldine Andrade and immediately loved it. She has the complete instructions here (if you don't read Spanish there is a Google translator button in the upper right hand corner of her page).
 The sentiment was stamped in Wild Wasabi ink and then embossed with our new Wild Wasabi Emboss Powder and Versa Mark ink. There are THREE new emboss powder colors in the Summer Mini, I am so excited that they are doing coordinating emboss powder colors now, awesome! This was punched out with the large Extra Large Oval Punch and layered onto a Baja Breeze 2-3/8" Scallop Circle and 1-3/4" Blushing Bride Scallop Circle, and embellished with Basic Pearls and Pretty in Pink 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
 The card set made to coordinate with the basket are made on Whisper White card stock. A piece of Designer Series Paper was placed on top. I cut 1-3/4" squares in Blushing Bride and then ran them through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The egg image is from the set and was stamped in Baja Breeze ink. Then I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line the image up again and stamped it in Versa Mark Ink and embossed it with Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder. This was punched out with the 1-1/4' square punch. These would be perfect as tags for an Easter goodie or small gift set for a hostess.
The cards are 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" and fit perfectly into the basket opening.
I hope this inspires you to come join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
