Basket Additions 2: Another super cute set from our very talented Melanie! and great for Paper piecing or coloring.

Directions:
  • Make card base from White cardstock (heavy weight) 6" square.
  • Cut a panel from Innocent Pink Cardstock (5.5" square), mat this with Petals & Wings Patterned Paper (ink all edges) and add zig-zag stitches.
  • Tie Light Pink Gingham Ribbon around and adhere piece to card base.
  • Die-cut a piece of White CS using Fleur De Lis Square Nestabilities, emboss and stencil as well. Adhere it to card base with pop dots.
  • Stamp image onto White cardstock. Color it with Copic Markers. Cut them out and glue basket direct onto White Square piece and add top piece with Pop dots.
  • Paper piece blanket and book (Paper used from Petals & Wings Patterned Paper)
  • Create a double bow with bow-easy and adhere it to card.
  • Add a couple of Gold nail heads to opposite corners.




Lacy Borders: This is one of my favorite sets :) So elegant and easy to work with.

Direction:
  • Make card base from White Cardstock.
  • Cut a panel from White cardstock. (5" x 3.75")
  • Stamp sentiment in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Stamp Border Scallop lace image onto Vellum paper (x3) in Versamark Embossing Ink. Add Bridal Embossing Tinsel and heat it up. Cut them out.
  • Adhere the lace stamped image on your card panel with 1/8" Scor-Tape.
