You know you have it bad when the first thing you think of on waking is “how can I tweak that card-front base to make it work“. And the really hilarious thing is that even the tweak was tweaked!😂
Immediately adhering the base is not something I would usually do and am really not sure what made me do this. It made things that much more difficult in the end. Here is my take on this week’s Freshly Made Sketches 300.
First, I cut one side of the basket from Kraft card stock and added an additional score line 1/4″ below the original score line. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock for the basket’s scalloped edge trim. I added a couple of additional score lines using my Paper Trimmer (as shown). Be sure to have 11 scallops in between with two scallops on each side. Next, I stapled them together, using Fast Fuse to adhere the tab to the card.
There’s was finally an opportunity for me to take the Berry Basket Bigz L Die on page 21 of the Occasions Catalog out of its packaging over the week-end and what fun I had!
I tried it three ways, the first was as is with Gold Glimmer Paper (which is now filled with chocolates in readiness for valentine’s) and then for the next two I wanted to see how it went with the smaller DSP stacks.
The small green basket was my favorite in the end and only used 2 sheets of DSP stack by lining them up in the centre of the die, too easy!
There’s no denying it’s one of the more expenses dies being priced at $46.95 but the possibilities are endless and can be used for every occasion. It’s well worth the investment. Besides, you only need another $13.05 to have yourself a free Sale-a-Bration product. Now that’s GOT to be tempting, lol!
