Card making is a way of bringing cheer. We have some lovely stamps to help you do just that. Today I'll be featuring baskets and wagons.
This basket is empty so you can fill it up with hearts, flowers, eggs, chicks, leaves or anything else you can think of. You can even cut off the basket handle to create a pot.
I enjoyed adding dimension to these cards since the cards were so simple. Notice the tiny bow to dress up the baskets and wagon.

Isn't the little bow the cutest? You can bend the ends forward so it looks more dimensional. You can put the bow on a puppy, bouquet, box, present, on a border, on corners and so many other places, even a background.
To make the ribbon, cut a white strip of cardstock to whatever width you like. With Versafine Onyx Black, stamp scallop edge on one edge of the strip. Turn over and do the same on the other edge.
Take the Tombow marker and run the marker's edge down the side of the ribbon.
For the Oval frame. After punching out, use an Exacto knife and cut the middle out, creating a fram.
For the flower background, take the clear flower from the Friends Forever Clear Stamp set. Starting in the middle of the card, add flowers to the right and left of it, continually adding to create a seamless pattern. Repeat below that row, offsetting it, as shown.
You can color the flowers in with markers to give more color.
You can easily add more backgrounds with the background stamps. The polka dotted background was stamped in VersaMagic Cloud White.
Here is what it looks like when finished.
Notice the dimension here?
See you tomorrow for a very special surprise!
