Happy Easter Coffee Card

Hello there, Christine here.  I have an interactive, easel Easter Card using products that I got from Super Sponsor Ellen Hutson (Poppy Stamps), Simon Says Stamp (Avery Elle) and Lawn Fawn.  I added a coffee cup in the Easter Basket, which would be the perfect Easter Basket for me (chocolate & coffee). First I die cut the basket from woodgrain cardstock (I used what I had in my stash) using the Poppy Stamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel die set. I also cut the 2 piece card base and the basket outline, the leaves and the bow from the same die set using cardstock I had in my stash (I sort by color and don’t have the brand names).  I ink blended some distress oxide ink in gathered twigs on the outer edges of the basket to create some depth.  I assembled the card and put a stopper on the card (as seen below) so that the bottom part of the easel had something to catch on to when the card is opened. I stamped and die cut the coffee cup using the Avery Elle Cool Beans stamp & die set out of 110lb Neenah cardstock in solar white and stamped and die cut the coffee sleeve onto kraft paper.  I die cut the Easter eggs using the Lawn Fawn Mini Easter Eggs die set all out of 110lb Neenah cardstock in solar white and then ink blended either distress oxide ink in scattered straw or flamingo kitsch; I put some glitter paste over some of the pieces of the die cut eggs. Finally I stamped and die cut some adorable bunnies from the Lawn Fawn Easter Before ‘n Afters stamp & die set. I kept the coloring really simple, I used copic marker R20 for the egg and Stampin Up markers in Dark & Light Crumbcake for the bunnies themselves.  Finally I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Easter Before ‘n Afters stamp set onto a banner die cut that I had in my stash. Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope that you will have a crafty and caffeinated day!

  1. This is great! I like that the coffee cup does not over take the card but adds to it! So creative and I bet there is a challenge someplace that you should enter this into; if you have not already! Enjoyed this! Thanks for sharing it Christine!
