Just Add Ink #210 & SUO #94 - An Easter card in a box

With a new fun technique to play with I wanted to make an Easter card in a box and at the moment Just Add Ink's latest challenge is add an Easter box or basket and SUO is all about Easter too!!!
(hopefully the card in a box is allowed over at JAI?!?!.....)
I'm loving the colour combo of the Fresh prints DSP in the current mini so with Real red, Pool party and whisper white I came up with this Easter box card.

I've been playing with making some kind of frame for a main embellishment or stamped image, this one I've created using the oval embossing folder, cut out the middle and tore around the edge. The Easter egg is made from one of the elegant stamps in the Lovely Romance stamp set which I clear embossed. (though if you look closely you can see some speckles of white which must of got mixed into my clear!!!) I then used the PERFECT EGG DIE from the Backyard basics Framelits set!! YAY!!

I wanted to create a different background than that of the DSP so chose the sweet doily, cutting down on the two sides to slip it down the box a little more!
I know I'll be making LOADS more of these types of card/boxes, they are soooo much fun!! Do check out what the fabbo ladies at JAI  and SUO have made, they always have the most amazing, inspiring things to get those creative juices flowing!!!!
