Yesterday I mentioned that 3 of the Pretty Pals – the name of my Uplines group, earned Founder's Circle. This is an exciting accomplishment becuase it is a very select group of all of the Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. My card today is for my friend and fellow Pal – Ann Schach. Congrats Ann!
The Stipled Blossom creates a vintage looking flower for my basket. It is a two-step stamp so I was able to pair a light color with a darker color. I chose Crisp Cantaloupe with Calypso Coral & So Saffron with Hello Honey. The leaves were stamped with Wild Wasabi & Garden Green.
I did a lot of fussy cutting! Each flower and leaf is snipped out & popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. Ann adores Pearls so I showered her card with them.
In order to create the basket, I stamped the Hardwood stamp with Chocolate Chip Ink on Crumb Cake cardstock. After cutting strips of the hardwood, I wove them to create the basket. An Oval Thinlet was used to cut the basket out. To keep the basket together, I put Glue Dots on the edge pieces.
Fringe Scissors and Garden Green cardstock give the illusion of grass. A few flowers are tucked in the grass layers.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
