My Strawberry Berry Basket
I started with the a 1/2 sheet of Always artichoke. Cut the sheet with the entire die and then cut the bottom in half as shown. You will also need 1/2 of the borderstrip as well. Cut along the score line already there. I ran it with the woodgrain EF to add texture. I do not like to have things "floating" on cards so I grounded the basket with a 1 inch strip of old olive embossed with polka dots. I then attached the basket bottom only so I could put berries behind the basket and get a sense of how it was going to look by flipping the basket part open to glue things down.
You also need several Old Olive punched with Bojo Blossom punch and the little flowers from Itty Bitty Punches. I used the sentiment and frames from From the Garden set for the tag in Artichoke and Real Red. Pick what works best for you.
The Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set had so many little things you could use for the cent of the flower that I snipped one off (when I want to use it as intended, I can just attach it where it was supposed to go- and you can see exactly where you want to to put it- the beauty of photopolymer stamps!). So here at the end is another one I did first before the one above- I was packing the strawberries and one just fell off and I loved how it was sitting by the basket so of course I had to copy nature! Enjoy!
