Best of 2011

Happy Friday!
Is it spring yet where you live? Seems like overnight, everything started blooming here. So ┬áthe idea of making a basket shaped card with flowers all over it just stuck in my head and that’s the direction this took.

As I was deciding how to go about making the basket, I took a folded A2 (4.25 x 5.5) card and saw that the butterfly wreath would make the perfect handle. I stamped a little more than half of the wreath on the top part of the card and used two oval dies to cut it out by inserting the card only part way into the die cut machine. All of the flowers and butterflies were colored w/ markers and cut out.

 

For the front, I cut strips of card stock, embossed w/ a plaid folder and sponged on the different colors of chalk inks. After weaving the strips, I attached it to the card front and added narrow border w/ mitered corners as a frame.

Thanks for stopping by!
