Spring Basket 3

Good Morning, and Good Friday! :)  I hope everyone has great plans for Easter, or a few days off work, its hard to believe the weather this week eh? lol.

So today I am sharing another Spring Basket made using a downloaded template for my digi-cutter and decorated with Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.

I used one sheet of K&Co double sided paper, and inked the edges before assembly.   The border die was cut on double-sided snow white pearlescent card, so it looks just as lovely on both sides.  This was used on the border base, top of basket and the handle.  I affixed the dragonflies with white brads, as they are very delicate and fluttery, and I didnt want them flying off! :)

The dies I used on this basket are:

B133 - Lace Light Deco Border
DL146 - Large Dragonfly with Angel Wing included
B164 - Lace Corner Deco D - I layered this for the scrunched up flower on top.
D133 - Dimensional Small Leaves #1

and 'TaDa'..... my basket collection for an Easter table display.  I just hope the Easter bunny doesnt mind leaving more eggs! lol :)  If you feel like joining in with our Easter Basket challenge over on Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge you still have until Sunday to enter. :)

I can see you really enjoyed making these - it really shows in the outstanding quality & detail of what you have created. It looks to me as if you're in your element with dies & digi cutting. My favourite is the pale brown with the scalloped edges top right in the final photo.
Have a wonderful Easter.

Sarah said...

Hi Alsion, oh my goodness - these are just sooooo beautiful! Love everything about them.

I look at all these dies sometimes but don't buy them as I don't know what to do with them - you certainly have a very good eye for the perfect use of dies.

I think you will be a brilliant asset to the Cheery Lynn challenge blog and perfectly showcase their dies.
