Easter Card

I was scrapbooking and playing around with my computer last night (both things are not exclusive, you know!) looking at ideas and tips when I got an email from SheryK Designs which included the link for a cute Easter basket cut file.  Shery does a wonderful job with her designs.  I've only started "collecting" them and this may be the first project I've actually done but it's a cutie!
What is it you ask?
A cute little shaped Easter basket card.  See?
Shery K includes various cut file formats in her dowloads including SVG and the Silhouette Studio file which makes it easy peasy for us Silhouette users.
This all cut out beautifully and was really fun to assemble. I used some K and Company papers I had that actually are printed on the reverse side...I used the solid sides because they were nice pastels.  I must not be much of a pastel person, though, because I certainly don't have much in the way of pastel in my stash! LOL!
I used Kraft cardstock as the base.  I also added a Tiny Tag cut with the corresponding die and sentiment from Paper Trey Ink. Added a couple of buttons and a little white cotton crochet thread and that was it!
I'd like to show a little closeup just because it's fun to check things out under a microscope!  LOL!

And that's it for's a beautiful day here...I'll get outside and take a walk...other then that I hear my scrapbook stuff calling me!

Happy Crafting!


  1. What cute eggs. I am working on a pop up easter basket and egg ...just finished have to photograph it and work on a tutorial!

  2. Like the shaped Easter basket. Especially like the lace edging & the colors of the eggs. I've heard of SVG cut files and people using them on the Cricut but do not know how to go about that.

  3. Aww that is too cute. I d/ld this and was going to cut it myself. TFS.

  4. I love this card. Once I open the studio file do I have to trace it to get it cut?

    Thanks for your help.

    1. If you open the Studio file you will not have to trace and can just cut. If you open it as an .svg then you will have to trace before cutting. Hope that helps!

  5. Love this card- super super cute cut file!!! :)Amy
