I’m back and editing to add more photos! I decided to take off the Happy Easter and stamp hello! So keep scrolling for the original post text! lol
The sentiment ‘hello’ is from the New Memory Box Springtime Typewriter Sentiments Clear stamp set, HERE.
Which one do you like better? Don’t count that I changed the white balance on the camera so the color is different for the two cards…some days I shouldn’t be allowed to have a camera! lol
A very Happy Spring and Easter to you! These Memory Box Forget Me Nots are such sweet, little, whimsical flowers to add to the new Memory Box Egg Basket Frame.
There’s a little bit of green coming up at the base of our hydrangea bushes. Whew… it was a fierce Winter so you never know! There’s hope!
I die cut the Egg Basket Circle 3 times from kraft color cardstock and glued them together. I left one cut in the die and embossed the basket weave by going over the basket area with a stylus. Then I inked the whole thing with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.
I die cut the Frame part of the set from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock. I don’t use the metal shim for these dies but because they are intricate, I die cut them with the blades up. I crank a third of the way, then crank back to start, then crank to the middle, then crank back a little but not back to start, then I crank the rest of the way but stopping and going back toward the middle and back to all the way again. Hope that makes sense. I can’t stand my cutting plates getting all warped. And this works most of the time. If I have an area that didn’t cut all the way, I change to a sidekick cutting plate, the small 2 inch wide plate and try to just cut in that area. I don’t like to try to cut the whole thing again. It makes a mess! I hate those paper hairs too. ugh.
Otherwise, just use 80# cardstock and it’ll cut without any extra maneuvering!
I backed the Frame with a Memory Box Stitched Square Layers die cut in a little darker purple cardstock.
I inked up the area behind the basket with a little Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink and a mini ink blending tool.
To top it off, I die cut the new Memory Box Happy Easter Premiere die from Gold Foil Cardstock. I love this gold!
The card is 4 ¾ inches square. You can easy mail it in an A7 envelope!
I’ve got a card to mail today, it’s so nice, I’m gonna walk it to the Post Office! yay for Spring!
Thanks for stopping by… products I used linked below.

Hi Pam what a lovely Easter Card love everything about it. The basket, the forget me not flowers the lovely frame around it so cute. Hope you have a great Easter.
Great card and I love the colors
Wow, Pam! I love them both!! Gorgeous dies!! And love the pale yellow behind the basket!!
Such a pretty card Pam! I love the colors you used! Have a Happy Easter!
Love how you used the Easter Basket for regular card! Now I want that die!
I personally like the first “hello” one best. It’s an understated elegance. 🙂 But they’re both beautiful! I love gold card stock. It jazzes up everything!
I like the “hello” the best although the Happy Easter is beautiful. Love the little flowers – forget me nots. I just sat down and made my Easter cards last night – a bit slower this year for some reason.
Each one is incredible!! The layering, the gorgeous purple, and that hint of yellow!!!! schweeeeee!!!! Absolutely gorgeous Pam!!!
Oh, cute! I love both. Just depends on what occasion you’re making it for, and clearly this die set can be used for many occasions. Really pretty with the gold sentiment. BTW, the colors look the same to me in all photos. The subtle change of purple in the center is nice and the gentle yellow behind the basket makes all the difference. Love the cute little size, too. My max size for square cards is 5″ usually, so pretty close. This is compact and pretty and just enough!
