Spring is almost here and I decided that I wanted to make a floral basket with the beautiful flowers from Miss Ink Stamp's Magnolia Sympathy stamp and Gardenia stamp sets. This card can be an everyday card or adapted to be either an Easter card or Mother's Day card!
To make the card:
- I created an A2 card base out of Neenah 110lb solar white cardstock, and die cut a rectangular panel out of yellow Lawn Fawn Speckled paper. I had a basket die set from Lawn Fawn, but I only cut the bow and a partial basket from it. The handle (cut from 2 circle dies) and trim on the bottom (a strip cut from the rectangle panel) are all just what I happened to have in my stash. You can totally just make a basket using dies that you already have!
- I die cut and copic colored the gardenias and magnolias from the Magnolia Sympathy stamp and Gardenia stamp very simply and then added sparkle paste & sequins. I spent most of my time working on the floral arrangement; don't be afraid to spend quite some time on it, I often have to walk away from it and look at it later to make sure that I like it!
