A Basket of Flowers from the Picnic with You Bundle

The Picnic with You Bundle called out to me.   I listened and ordered it as soon as I could.  Have you ever gotten something and then wondered why?  That's how I felt if I'm honest.  Well today I love the card I made with this bundle.

There's lots of details to this card.  So let me get started.

The base of the card is Tranquil Tide cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Use the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder to add interest to the front of the card.

The Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack was used to decorate the front.  Cut a piece of Fresh Fig 2 x 5 1/2 and attach it across the middle of the front.

Using the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits, cut a basket from Early Espresso card stock.  There is a framelit piece that will fit inside the basket.  It will emboss the basket look to the front.  You can use both of these framelits at the same time.  Take a piece of the Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon and fold it in half.  Tape the ends behind the basket.  Add a layer of the Linen Thread.  The bow was made and added with a rolled up glue dot.

The Whisper White layer measures 3 1/2 x 3 3/4.  Take the basket and determine where it will be.  Add a pencil line across the top.  This will help with the placement of the stems and flowers.  Use Tranquil Tide for the stems and Fresh Fig for the flowers.  Stamp off the Fresh Fig for the small flowers.  Attach the basket.

The white layer is placed on a rectangle of Fresh Fig card stock cut at 3 5/8 x 3 7/8.  Add this to the front of the card.

The saying is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  Stamp in Tranquil Tide on Whisper White.  Punch it out with the 1 1/2 inch circle punch.  The Tranquil Tide circle is cut with the Layering Circle Framelits.  Add to the card.

Stamp the butterfuly with Fresh Fig and cut out with the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits.  This is attached to the circles.

This saying on the inside is also from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  I find that I'm using this set quite a bit!  Add more flowers and a butterfly.

We are making this card in my classes coming up.  I do think the ladies will love it.

Thanks for taking a look at my project today.  It's really cute!  I still haven't given the Picnic with You bundle the love it deserves, but I will be playing more with it.
