Easter Basket Cards

I finished up my Easter cards and wanted to share what I made with all of you!  I decided to make a cute Easter card that features SVG's from SVG Attic's Easter Elements kit.  
Three of the eggs were cut at 2" tall and two were cut at 1.5" tall.  I embossed the solid color eggs with embossing folders and I inked around the edges with brown chalk.  For the grass, I sized them at 8" wide, then manually cut them in half, so I had enough grass for two cards from one grass cut.
 The basket weave part was all cut with my paper trimmer.  I embossed the horizontal paper strips with a basket weave embossing folder and inked all those edged with tan chalk.  I used a stamp from Paper Sweeties for the sentiment and some of my homemade enamel dots (go to THIS post to find out how I made them).  I wrapped some ribbon around the top of the "basket", added a bow and the front was finished!
I also added some washi tape to the inside of the card to add just a little pop of color.
I made multiples of these cards, and here you can see the different ribbons that I used on them.
Guess what...SVG Attic has some amazing new files that have just been released too!  I just have to share them with you.  They are gorgeous and would be perfect for spring, Mother's Day or birthdays.  Here they are:
