Basket Full of Poinsettias

I know sneak peak week was last week but I’m still showing off some of new dies sets. I made a basket with the new Wide Woven basket Card die and I’m using the Bam Boxes again. The Bam Boxes make this card pop open once removed from the envelope, which adds to the wow factor.

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

1- I believe the cardstock is Sahara Stand from Stampin up. I cut 2 of the Woven Basket pieces with the cross pieces and 2 of the Wide Woven Baskets with the cross pieces.

2- I sponged all the edges with matching ink. Also when die cutting the original woven basket the whole piece isn’t needed as you are replacing the front and back with the wide woven basket pieces. So trim off the excess but make sure you keep the side with the tapered tab.

3- I cut three of the cross braces and trimmed off the grass edge.

4- connect the panels as shown

5- add the cross pieces as shown.

6- close the basket and add the crossbars.

7-create the Bam Boxes. Karen has awesome direction (links to the products below and she has videos on her project page)

8- add 2 of the Bam boxes to the basket as shown. Make sure they go the same way so the box can fold flat

9- stamp the leaves, poinsettias, and pine cones as shown. This is a very old Stampin Up set

10- I used alcohol markers to add shading to the images

11-12 fussy cut the images, highlight areas on the leaves and poinsettias with a gold marker, and snow on the pine cones with a white marker.

13- start adding images to the front of the card and the first panel. I also added white ribbon and gold string.

14- I wanted the other rows to be higher. So I added the images to panels. Each panel gets higher which each row.

15- diecut “Merry Christmas” from gold glitter cardstock and cardstock that matches the basket. I sandwiched a clear stick (from a clear piece of packaging) between the 2 diecuts and added it to the basket.

16- I wrapped the ribbon and gold string around the basket and adhered it to a few places. I made a faux bow then adhered it over where the ribbons met up on the front of the box.
