Basket of flowers


This is the second of the cards I made for Stretch your Easter Stash for Papercraft Essentials magazine.  I didn't actually have much Easter stuff so I was very pleased to buy this Memory Box bountiful basket die reduced when I went to Ally Pally in April. It would look lovely filled with eggs for an Easter card of course. I used DI aged mahogany to bring out the embossing on the die and filled it with MS punched leaves and Wild Orchid cherry blossom and roses. I used silver acrylic paint on the cherry blossom, added a bow and sentiment. The circle was cut with a Tonic trellis circle die.
