Gift Basket and Matching Card

Hi everyone, I've got a new project on the Whiskers Graphics blog.

Divine Twine Metallics - Rose Gold Metallic
Dies - Spellbinders
Stamps - Joy Clair - Paisley Bouquet, Butterfly Kisses
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Beacon Adhesives

I had this lovely floral stamp set I wanted to use.  Using a beige panel, I stamped one of the images in brown ink in the corner.  For dimension, I fussy cut a separate flower and added it atop the flourish with a brad. 

I tied Rose Gold Metallic Twine vertically around the card, tying at the top.  I added a sweet sentiment from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set to the center of the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Then I had to create a coordinating gift basket  using Spellbinders dies.  I first created a base from cardboard.  Cutting it 4 3/4" x 4 3/4", I scored 1/2" around and folded on the scored lines.  I cut in the corners.

Using Spellbinders die, I die cut 8 panels from brown cardstock and 4 panels from beige cardstock.  I stamped the same floral design I used on the card on the 4 beige cardstock panels then adhered them to the brown panels.  I also stamped and fussy cut flowers, adhering them to the panels with brads.   

A handle was created from strips of cardstock and another floral stamp was repeatedly stamped on the beige strip. 

The brads from the flowers hold the handles in place.  A second set of brown panels was adhered to the panels inside the basket covering the handles.  A final panel was added to the basket base.

I punched holes in the edges of the panels and used Rose Gold Metallic twine to tie the basket together.

Now simply add some treats in the basket and give to someone special.  These baskets are quick and easy to make and would be great for Easter, Mother's Day, birthdays and so much more.

Thanks for stopping by.
