Stampin' Up From the Garden paired with the Berry Basket~Think Spring
March 25, 2015
I love this idea from Cindy of the artisan Design Team~ I hope you do too!
She used the Berry Basket Bigz L Die to create a card/tiny gift that would be perfect for a vegetable or flower gardener. For the background, she used the Wild Wasabi striped pattern in the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.
First, she cut one side of the basket from Kraft card stock and added an additional score line 1/4" below the original score line. Then she cut a piece of Whisper White card stock for the basket’s scalloped edge trim. She added a couple of additional score lines using my Paper Trimmer (as shown). Be sure to have 11 scallops in between with two scallops on each side. Next, she stapled them together, using Fast Fuse to adhere the tab to the card.
This side view shows you how to a form a card pocket. It’s large enough to hold up to two seed packets. She wrapped each seed packet with a Tea Lace Paper Doily and Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine (item # 134586).
She made the little garden markers from the same stamp set and Framelits Dies using Hello Honey (item # 133643), Rich Razzleberry, and Wild Wasabi ink.
I hope that these projects inspire you to snap out of the winter blues and embrace spring.
