Cricut gift bag and Waltzing Mouse Easter card

Hello everyone,



Its the 17th of April so its time for the Waltzing Mouse Blog Waltz although hop might be a better term this month because everyone is thinking Easter and that makes you think of bunnies right? Anyway do take time to hop round all the players in this months waltz and you're sure to find lots of inspiration.

My contributions for this month are:-




As its Easter I chose a yellow card base and stamped the rectangle frame from Frame It and placed the Happy Easter in the gap. I then stamped the pedestal basket from Spring Baskets in Versamark and embossed it in white before colouring it with a brown Copic marker. Next the daffodils were stamped, coloured and cut out to place in the basket. I used a score board to emboss a frame around the stamped frame to give a little more texture, tied some ribbon and mounted the panel onto the card base. Another sentiment and a corner embellishment finished it off.

I decided to make some gift baskets to hold some little chocolates for the Easter table and I used my Cricut to cut out the bags, panels and tags and used WM Spring Baskets for the focal points.


The bag and tags were cut with Bags, Tags, Boxes and More and the panels and chicks were from Just Because cards.



and here is one with the Easter card I posted some days ago. The colours do not match but they are not meant to go together. I've just discovered that these offerings will fit in the Get Creative April 1st challenge and the ABC DT challenge



All this thinking of bags for choccies is giving me the munchies so roll on Easter Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs

  30. From one Carol to another....Love your Easter bag and card. I think homemade Easter bags/baskets are so much more quaint than the store bought ones, and yours certainly is! I've been intrigued by the WM challenges lately...I must get up the nerve to try one or two. And, thanks for your kind comments on my blog. One layer cards aren't really that hard. Once you get the hang of it. They can be quite addictive, actually, because they are really pretty quick to make.

  31. Hey Carol - congrats on winning ! I am sorry I haven't got your PTI wreath stuff done - life took a left turn about 6 weeks ago and I'm only getting a handle on it all again... however, that's what Easter weekends are for - right ??! Hope to get it in the post after this weekend ! Margaret C XX
