Just for You basket


Hi all, how was your day today?  I love to make shaped cards and I recently discovered that my circle dies can make great basket cards.  The challenge over at AnnaBelle Stamps this week was 'say it in kraft, lemon & white'. 
Since I only brang over here to NZ my 'ballerina rose' stamp set from AnnaBelle Stamps I had to use that.  this time I used the larger flower duo and the leaves from the rose branch.  Here is my card ...

to make the baskets I die cut 2 of the largest circles and use the next die down in size as a template for my handle.  I cut away a semi circle from each large circle and then trimmed the bottoms so that the card sits flat.
I then cut kraft, buttercup and white strips of card and wove them together, attached to the main card base and trimmed the outside.  Here is the inside of the card ...
 
as you can see I have a love for liquid pearls and just love dotting away at edges!!!
materials - Bazzill kraft card, AC buttercup card, white card; Basice Grey 'hello luscious' papers; AnnaBelle Stamps 'ballerina rose', Inky Antics 'millie mouse' stamps (title); Staz On timber brown ink; Ranger white opal and buttercup liquid pearls.
Thanks for looking.
