This fun card is easy to make when using the Pansy dies and Pansy DSP. Here are the basic supplies along with the measurements (or you can skip the boring part and scroll down to watch the video instead) :
The basket is made from 2 pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 2 1/4 . The top piece is embossed with the Basket embossing folder (now retired). Crumb Cake ink is applied with a sponge dauber to add dimension and make it look more basket-like. The basket handles are 1/4″ strips of Soft Suede cut at 2 1/4″. If you place the handles at an angle like I did, the card may not fit in a standard A2 envelope.
The angle cut on Crumb Cake to create the basket look is made by marking 3/4 inch down from the top on both sides then an 1/2 inch from the bottom on both sides. Use a ruler to draw a line in between the marks on each side then cut along the lines that were drawn. Do this for both pieces of Crumb Cake. I adhered the 2 pieces of Crumb Cake together with tear-n-tape on the sides and bottom edges. The ribbon (which is tucked under the front piece) and the handles help give the basket added depth at the top to be able to easily insert the card base (with the pansies at the top) into the basket.
The card base where the pansies and leaves attach is a piece of Basic White cut at 3 x 4. A light pencil line is drawn from the bottom of the card base at 1 7/8”. The line delineates the where the top of the basket will be and serves as a guide to placing the pansy flowers.
There is a piece of plaid (Soft Succulent) that is cut from the backside of the leaf DSP. It is cut at 1/2 x 3 and applied to the bottom of the white card piece after the bottom corners have been punched with the Trio Punch. The ends of the ribbon (retired Basket weave ribbon) are tucked under the front piece of Crumb Cake which helps the basket have an opening for the card to easily slide into the basket.
The flowers and leaves are glued with liquid glue to the top portion. However, dimensionals are added to the bottom flowers and leaves so as not to interfere with sliding the card into the basket – and to easily overlap the top of the basket.
