Good Sunday morning. My project today is a sweet arrangement made using spring colors and flower basket die cuts made using the new Impression Obsession Hanging Basket, Tiny 6 Petals, Tiny 5 Petals , Foliage and Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames. Before I start talking about the card let me just say I have missed posting for several days in a row due to some yucky computer issues that caused me to have to get a new laptop. Transferring files and starting over with a new computer is not one of my favorite things to do but at least I’m off to a good new start.
Flower Basket Die Cuts
I started by cutting the flower basket die using woodgrain cardstock. I attached the negative cut pieces back into the basket using double stick tape. I colored the basket using Vintage Photo ink and a mini applicator. I cut the 5 and 6 petals flowers in pink, purple, aqua and yellow and the foliage in green cardstock. I cut the foliage pieces apart to create several smaller pieces and began attaching them to the basket. using glossy accents. I started with the smallest pieces and worked my back to the tallest creating a full basket of foliage. I formed all the tiny flowers using my stylus and molding pad and attached the flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
Attaching the Frame and Basket
I cut the frame, attached the two sections together using double stick tape and then attached the frame to the card base using mounting tape. I used mounting tape to attached the basket to the card base. I tucked the ends of the hanger in behind the flowers and attached it to the frame and and card base using glossy accents. I created a small pink multi loop bow for the finishing touch and attached it in place using glue dots.
Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to get out your dies to create your own flower basket die cuts project. I hope you have a great Sunday and a good week.
