Chocolate Bunny Basket Card





Hi crafters!  What's better than an Easter Basket filled with chocolate bunnies?  Why nothing of course! LOL  At least this card of chocolate bunnies doesn't have a single calorie!  Today's video will show you how to use your Easter basket to make a card rather than a 3D basket.

The winner of this week's Wednesday Card Giveaway is:

Saba!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at americansue1@gmail.com to confirm your address and claim your card.









The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Bunny looks ready to be eaten. Love Easter cards and hours are the best!

Pam said...

Beautiful card Sue, love it.
As usual John did a great job with your dies on Hochabda, he really brings passion into his crafting, he is Amoy to watch and your best ambassador.
Congratulations on your win, Saba you will enjoy your card.
June, are you sure you are trying hard enough, it doesn't usually take you this long. He is such a lovely husband I'm sure he will take you.
Maria, bless you, your eyes sound really bad. Take care they are precious.
Donita, I'm sure your friend will either not notice the 4 leaves or will be too polite to mention it. If she does just say it was extra for good luck.
Elaine, hoping Andrew is feeling a bit stronger and that Monday goes well for him.
Helen, how is shoulder doing, slowly but surely, try not to overdo it. You must miss crafting.
Carmen, where is back home to visit your families, you must miss them.
Missing all our lovely friends, Norah, NannaTina, Tina T, Wheeley, Yvonne, Lorraine, Maureen, wish you were back .
Hugs to.all, have a lovely Saturday.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a gorgeous card today, I know my grandchildren will love this when I make it, look at the detail on the bunnies and basket, Sue your a genius. Yes another one added to my list of things to make.

Congratulations to Saba, I know you will enjoy your card. Years ago I won one of Sue's cards and it has pride of place on the shelf just in front of my eyes so I see it every day.

Pam still trying, crossing my fingers and toes, he has not said a definite no now so he is weakening. Mind you he was very good yesterday, he gave me half the money towards a new all-in-one all singing, all dancing PC, touch screen and everything, so I am now trying to work out how to get all my vast craft files and photos over to the cloud...........technical or what, but I will get there. Oh and my twin sister bought one exactly the same too.

I agree with everything that Pam has said above and sending special hugs to everyone who needs them.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs June Smith xxx

A true genius at work and once again i learned how to use your dies in loads of different ways. Thanks for another great video. Congratulations to Saba on winning Wednesdays beautiful card.
Best Wishes.

CHERYL Brown said...

Hi Sue,

A delightful card for Easter and the 'chocolate' bunnies look good enough to eat. Your frames always put mine to shame, I have wonky ones no matter how hard I try.
I missed John's show yesterday, was so busy being busy I forgot to record it, I'll have to catch up on the internet.

Congratulations Saba on your win.

The rain started last night and has continued through into this morning, quite a dull day on the cards enough to send me straight to my craft room once housework is done.

Usual hugs to all in pain and discomfort.

Love 7 hugs

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Crafty Crew,

My teeth are sore just looking at all that chocolate! So clever to make the grass and basket white and use only a little lavender or wisteria so the chocolate bunnies get even more attention.

What a nice way to start the weekend!

Congratulations Saba on your win!

Happy weekend, friends.

Donita in R.I., U.S.A.

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
Another Truly Tremendous "Video Tutorial" This Time Showing Us How To Use
"The Easter Basket Die" On A Card Rather Than A 3D Project.
Products Used:-
"Coconut White/Chestnut/Deep Cocoa/Wisteria Foundation Card"
"Mounting Foam"
"The Tulip Twist Embossing Folder"
"The Wooden Gate Fence Collection Of Dies" From The Finishing Touches Range
"The Easter Basket Die Set" From The Kinetics Collection
Today's Card/Video:-
Sue, Once Again You Talked Us Through A Extremely Informative Video Tutorial Breaking Every Step Down
So We Was Able To Copy If Need Be.
I've Watched This Awesome Video Previously But Always A Great Pleasure To Watch Over
And Over Again, I've Said Many Times When You Go Through The Video Numerous Times There Is Always
Something That We See Differently.
Sue First You Took A Piece Of White Card Cut To The Size You Required You Embossed It Using
"The Tulip Twist Embossing Folder" As With All Your Embossing Folder's Such Great Detail, Sue, Then You Placed
Your Embossed Piece Of Card Onto The Already Mat/Layered Bottom Bringing In All The Colours You Have Used
Creating A Striking Background, Then You Cut Your "Easter Basket" Out Of White And Explained About The Score
Lines, You Cut "The Grass" Sue As You Mentioned You'll Need To Extend Slightly, From The Grass Is From
"The Wooden Gate Fence Collection"
You Created A Smaller Mat/Layer For Your Focal Point You Glued Your Grass To The Bottom Of Your Focal Point
Taking "The Easter Basket" You Cut This Out Showing Us Score Lines On The Basket You Glued The Tab And
Bottom Score Line And Attached It To Your Focal Point.
The Great Thing Is Sue As Always You've Thought Of Everything You Can Place Money Or A Gift Card Inside Basket,
(Tremendous Idea) But On This Occasion Sue, You Filled
"The Easter Basket" With Adorable Easter Bunnies Cutting Them Out Of Coconut White/Dark/Milk
(White Chocolate Being My Favourite)
Then You Cut Out Three Fabulous Easter Eggs, There Is Also A Bow In The Die Set You Cut This Out Of Wisteria Card
And Placed On The Front Of Your Wonderful Card Also Happy Easter Sentiment Sue You Cut Out Three Times From
Wisteria Card And Placed In Right Hand Corner.
Sue, With Everything You Do Today's Card Is Just "Stupendous" Thank You So Very Much For Sharing,
As Always You Inspire Me And I For One Truly Appreciate Everything You Do.
Sue Take Great Care
Wonderful Warm Fond Wishes To Colin And Heather
Sue Lots Of Love And Huge Hugs 🤗 For Yourself
Love From Sam xxx
Congratulations To Saba For Winning This Weeks Wednesday Gift Card Enjoy........

Jess Watson said...

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, milk, dark and white chocolate bunnies with not a calorie between them - love it :-) The card would be perfect both for children and those non-religious friends we wish to send greetings to. I really, really like this die set.

Saba - Congratulations on being the Wednesday Winner, I know you will be thrilled to receive a Sue card.
Maria - hope the conjunctivitis is not too itchy/sore and clears up very soon.
June - good luck with the new computer.

What could be better than a chocolate bunny in one's Easter basket? An Easter basket full of chocolate bunnies! So cute. The depth of the weave on your basket is amazing. Thanks for the video.

Pretty layering and details! Love these chocolate bunnies!

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue and everyone

I have been able to watch the video before commenting today for a change. As always expertly done and so informative. The card is really cute and as most have said the bunnies really do look like chocolate. I'm liking the new tulip embossing folder too.

Pam and Elaine, yes it's definitely slowly but surely and very frustrating. I think I have been overdoing things. I do miss crafting. I asked my hubby to put my die cutting machine on a small table in the kitchen for me so I could have a go. Unfortunately it was extremely painful so gave up. I just have to be patient. I know it's still early days. I can't drive yet either and I can't lift or carry anything heavy for a few months or stretch. On the positive side I should be pain free once it heals. X

Carmen hope you get to visit London and Ally Pally in September. I assumed you were Canadian, are you a Brit? X

Congratulations Saba on your win. X

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
First things first. What a lovely card to give at Easter. Those chocolate bunnies look good enough to eat, I'll have the white chocolate ones please! I enjoyed watching the video and it was interesting to see that the tabs on the basket were used to achieve the 3D effect. Very clever design. I love the tulip twist embossing folder, it's gorgeous.
Sue I am thrilled to bits to be this weeks Wednesday Card winner, and yes I did a happy dance and squealed at the same time. Thank you so very much, I will treasure it. You are so generous and we all really appreciate your kindness.

Thank you lovely Wilsonettes for your kind comments on my win, it just shows what kind and generous people you are.
Love and hugs for all,
Floating off on my cloud 9 now
