Easter Basket W Large Handle ~Double D Challenge

Hello friends ~  Double D Challenges is starting a new challenge today and the theme is "Things with Handles".  

I confess that I picked out my die before looking at the mood board.  

I asked myself, what types of things have handles, and the first thing that came to my mind was this Woven Basket Pop Up Easel die from Poppystamps.  I did all the inking in the background and on the basket using DOX inks.  

I filled the basket with the grass and leaf dies that are included in the set and then I added this sweet bunny from Lil' Inkers Bunnies & Bows.  I added some clear stickles glitter glue to the berries.

The big bow on top  of the basket is also included in the Poppystamps basket die.  

I enjoyed working with this die set so much!  You may recall me using it in this post here for Dies R Us.

  I also went on to make another basket card, filling it with Christmas goodies.

I had some Christmas dies that I put together before Christmas, left over and they filled this basket perfectly!

Here's a photo of all three basket cards together:

This Easter basket brings back memories of my childhood. Last year, by teenage grandkids still wanted Ester baskets. Your soft coloring and best and I love that you didn't stop there. Both the bunny and chicks are so cute, but the Christmas leftovers are so creative and pleasing.

Oh Birgit...these baskets are absolutely ADORABLE and I'm totally loving both the Easter one with the bunny and the Christmas one with the gingerbread man and cupcake!! And the one with the chicks is super sweet too! Could I get you to cut me out a basket or two? White would be fine. Thank you, thank you!! Hugs. :0)

Oh my gosh, these little baskets are so stinkin' adorable, and I love that you made one a Christmas basket. And who wouldn't love to get a basket with a chocolate bunny. Your sponging is wonderful here, the perfect final touch!!

Fabulous Easter and Christmas cards Birgit, I love the basket die!

I love your bunny basket, Birgit, but all of these basket cards are fantastic. That die cut is awesome. You've added the perfect touch of greenery around the bunny and shading to the wicker design on the basket. Thanks for the lovely BD card! Sent you a message.
