Baskets & Blooms Card Basket

Well, I apologize for my absence, life just gets too busy!!! But, I hope you find todays post, worth the wait. First things, first...I want to give credit for todays project to a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Christine Grygar
for designing the card layout, & the Sizzix Baskets & Blooms Card basket. I was so inspired by her project, that I had to make one of my own!!!
The image on todays card is from the new stamp set, Wagon Full of Fun. This set is in the Occasions Mini Catalog. And, speaking of the Occasions Mini Catalog, WOW!!! Don't you just love it!!! I have had a business plan, since I signed up as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. My plan was to only purchase ONE stamp set from each mini catalog at the time they were released. That was because, I like to purchse sets that I can demonstrate & share with my customers. And, we don't know which of these sets will make it into the new catalog July 1st. But, I have already purchased several sets, & I want more. So, I may take a little detour from the original plan :) because there are so many sets in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog that are "Must Haves".
Today's card is the usual 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. But, I folded the top layer back to make the fun fold on the front.

Here is a picture of the card, opened!

And...here is the card basket!!! Don't you just love it!!! The sides are made with the Sizzix Basket & Blooms die cut. The center is a piece of 6" wide cardstock, cut & scored to adhere to the sides of the Basket & Blooms die cut (which was scored 3/4 inches on each side to adhere. I also placed another piece of cardstock across the inside bottom, & up 2 " on each side of the inside. That was to secure the bottom of the basket-box. The daisy is the Sizzix Sizzlet Daisy Flower with a Rhinestone brad in the center.
Here is another photo with the card inside :)

And, how about that designer paper! I used the Stampin' Up! Pink Flamingo designer paper. I just love those bright images. And, there are little pink flamingos hidden in the design of some of the images. Too cute!!!

See the little Flamingo in there?
