Easter Basket Slimline Card
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello , hope you are all having some fun crafty time. Marybeth Lopez  here today for Poppystamps with a slimline card using a few more dies than I normally do. Trying not to make it too busy for me, only used two colors , three if you count the neutral basket .


The basket is two layers so I could have a smooth underside and tuck in some of the grass and bunnies. I lightly added some glitter to the basket ( mostly because I got a glue smudge on it) Below you can see the color pads I used for the basket and the grass.   I staggered three layers of the grass, then gave the grass a bit of a trim to shorten the blades of grass. I ink blended the white embossed panel with a light pink , using oxide inks and blending brushes.


I used memory box colors, Earth Neutral and Lush Green, both linked below. I so love having all the colors of the beautiful new paper pads. 


Long time ago I needed the long plates ( big shot) for a die I had (never needed again until now) and boy or boy am I glad I kept them and or have them. You don't have to have them for slimline cards but it its nice.

I used the die : Leafy Vines Slim Plate to Emboss not cut , all you need to do is use the sandwich for embossing so that it won't cut. The black is a thin embossing pad. I then adhered the : Slim Leafy die to the pink panel.


I really like the way this turned out even with my little mistake because I always love some added glitter.


I hope I have inspired you to have some crafty time and maybe even to do some shopping at the Poppystamps store , so many new spring stamps and dies.

We've been blessed with some beautiful sunny weather and now we will be getting some much needed rain.

Hope you have a wonderful week. God bless you all.







Hi Marybeth, This is a gorgeous slimline card, the colours are delicate and the die-cuts are gorgeous and enhanced with some glitter, truly beautiful.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

so cute, like the tall grass with them and the finish touch of the bow!
