Yet another sample from my shows starting tomorrow night at 8pm on Hochanda ( Freeview channel 85, sky 663 or online at www.hochanda.com. This uses the stunning Easter basket which as you can see from the card can be used as a flat or raised basket on a card as well as a 3D basket.
I made this card to show how the basket works flat here just cut in antique copper pearl foundation card.
I stared by cutting the Gemma die into a 5" square of foundation card twice using just the detail die in the set. The brilliant thing about the frames and tags collection is that they are perfect for making smaller cards and can be layered to make the larger Mantelpiece pleasers. I cut the next 2 dies in the set in the pearl card and added these in the centre of the die cut white pattern before adding this to a larger mat of the copper.
Next I added the basket front as I said above this die has been designed to work this way I will demo how this cleverly folds on my Hochanda show on Friday and Saturday.
Finally I added the flowers and foliage from the spring foliage set which cuts the beautiful leaves as well as 2 different styles ion flowers. I added these as aspire on the front of the basket with 3mm pearls as the flower centres. I finished with a few mats and layers in the white, copper and Primrose foundation card. A bow cut with the die in the Easter basket with another flower and pearl finishes the card at the top of the basket.
I have loads more samples of this die to share with you all on the shows which start tomorrow evening at 8pm.
