The Basket die set cuts several pieces so that you can weave your basket. I die-cut the pieces from kraft and then sponged each of the edges with distress ink to make them show up a bit better. There are 2 long handles on this basket - for this card they provided a base to attach my flowers, so you don't see much of them. The little tag and heart are also part of this die set. I made this into a card by attaching a traced basket shape to the back of my woven basket, scoring the back about 3/4" down from the top and then gluing that section only to the back of my woven basket.
I filled my basket with some 2- and 3-layer die-cut flowers, mixing up the tiny patterns, and adding little yellow buttons into their centers. The finished card measures about 4 1/4" wide by 5 3/4" tall, so it will need its own envelope. But if you bring the flowers down more over the basket, I think you could adjust this design to fit into an A2 envelope.
What a fun project this was to pull together! These dies are designed primarily for use with fabric or felt, but as you can see, they translate nicely for paper, too. Thanks for stopping by today.
