Blogging Friends Blog Hop Hippity Hoppity Easter's on it's way

 Hi there my crafty friends so  great to be back here crafting with my Blogging Friend this month's theme is HIPPITY HOPPITY EASTER'S ON IT'S WAY, I made a W Fun Fold card and quite happy with how the card turned out, I used the SPRINGTIME JOY Stamp set, below are the details of the card.

Card Base : Seaside Spray cardstock 4 1/8 x 11 3/4 score in  half @ 5 7/8

Top Layer : Whisper White cardstock measuring 4 x 5 1/2 die cut using Ornate Frame dies

Inside layers : 2 pieces @ 5 5/8 x 3 7/8

W Fold mechanism 1 piece Seaside spray 1 x 11 1/2 , fold in half and bring each end to the centre and fold again to form a W fold, use a bone folder to burnish well (its easier to do the fold this way than measuring in 16th's and 8's.)

4 pieces Seaside Spray :  2 1/2 x 2 3/4

4 pieces Whisper White : 2 1/2 x 2 3/4

Scrap pieces of different shades of green for the Sprigs, I used the Sprig Punch

Scrap piece of Soft Suede for basket, stamp 2 images, and 1 more image on a scrap of whisper white cardstock, I used one of the images as the base and used a bone folder and curved the basket to give it some dimension, with basket image from the whisper white cardstock I cut out the eggs in the basket and coloured it using Stampin' Blends and with the last image  I cut the handle and used a shaping tool again to give the handle some dimension.

I punched several sprigs from different shades of green using the Sprig punch, I die cut 4 circles using the Layering circle dies, and I arranged the springs on the circle to form a wreathe, I then adhered the Bird and Eggs and the Basket I used dimensionals.

For the inside I stamped the images from the SPRINGTIME JOY and the FLOWERS AND FIELDS stamp set. The sentiment the word HAPPY I stamped using the PRETTY PERENIALS stamp set and the word EASTER from SPRINGTIME JOY.

I cut 5 thin strips of Soft Suede cardstock about 1/16 to 1/8 inch and adhered it to the top edge of the basket and about 4 thin strips to the left of the basket and did a basket weave, I then adhered it to the basket using silicone, (paper tole technique) and then adhered the eggs to the back of the basket.

I die cut the bird and the eggs using the BIRDS & MORE DIES.

See you all again in next month's Blog Hop.
