Mama Elephant DS Project - Zodiac Sheep

Hello, friends! Today I'm sharing a fun Easer basket project for Mama Elephant Designer Series. 
It features the adorable Zodiac Sheep stamp set along with Little Chickie AgendaCute Basket XL CC3D Pop-Up Card CC.



To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Zodiac Sheep and Little Chickie Agenda stamp sets and cut them out with the coordinating Zodiac Sheep CC and Little Chickie Agenda CC.


The baskets were made using Cute Basket XL CC and I assembled them as shown.


The fence and the grass were made using the dies from the 3D Pop-Up Card CC. I trimmed and adhered them to the bottoms of the baskets. After, I foam mounted the colored images to the front of the baskets.

To finish, I filled the baskets with shredded paper and easter candy.
