Blossoming Basket

Just love this Sale-a-Bration set called Blossoming Basket that comes FREE as a Bundle if you purchase $100.  What is included in the Bundle is the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Embossing Folder will also be available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.  But why wait, when you can get it free now.  The colors I used are Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  I used the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends with the Memento Black ink.  The ribbon is the 1/4" Stitched Daffodil Delight Ribbon available in the annual catalog.

Blossoming Basket Bundle

This is a card I made last month before I went down to babysit my grand twins for a long weekend.
Here it is almost the middle of March and my recruit asked me for instructions on how to make this card so I typed them up quickly for her tonight and I'll share with you too.

1.     The base of the card is Calypso Coral cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.  Then the front is scored at 2-3/4” and folded towards the left of the front of the card.
2.    The Whisper White front section is cut at 2-1/2” x 4” and inserted into the Basket Weave Embossing Folder and run through the Big Shot.  Adhere to the 2-3/4” section of the front of the card with Multipurpose Glue.
3.    Ink up the basket stamp with Memento ink and stamp onto 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” of Whisper White.  Color in with the Stampin’ Blends.
4.    Adhere to a layer of 3=5/8” x 3-5/8” Calypso Coral (or 3-3/4” x 3-3/4” if preferred).
5.    Add adhesive to one side of the layers to put half on the 2/3” front section.
6.    For the inside:  Cut Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5-1/4”.
7.    Ink up the sentiment “Happiest of Birthdays to You” with Memento Black ink from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set on page 5 of the 2018 Occasions Catalog.
8.    Ink up the butterfly stamp from Blossoming Basket with Memento Black ink and stamp it three times on the right side of the inside Whisper White cardstock.
