Authentique Cottontail Easter Basket in a Box Card
Hello, Friends! Let’s get ready for Easter with an Easter Basket in a Box Card! The holiday will no doubt be different this year, but we can share the joy of the season via the mail. I’ve used Authentique’s Cottontail collection to create this sweet box style card and it’s so cute, even the Easter Bunny approves!
The entire Authentique Paper Design team is sharing wonderful Easter inspiration ideas on the Authentique blog this week. You’ll want to be sure to pop on over and see what goodies they have prepared for you.
Cottontail Easter Basket in a Box Card: A Closer Look
Start with a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ box card folio base. You can find a tutorial for the base HERE. Then dress it up with pretty pink flowers, ribbons, and Easter embellishments. You’ll hear all the details in the video tour below, so I won’t bore you with them here. I’ll just share the pretty photos with a few comments.
Color a resin bunny with Distress ink, then heat emboss with Seth Apter Dirty Sand Embossing Powder. Then rub some of the embossing off with your finger to create fake fur. The wee nest is made with burlap, twine and Spanish Moss.
Dress up the spine with a bunny key and carrot buttons.
The inside is filled with all sorts of fun interactive elements.
And here’s the “Easter Basket” and a sweet little pull out folio.
“Gift wrap” your treats with paper from the collection. Who wouldn’t love to receive an Easter Basket like this in the mail?
