Basket of Flowers

Hello, it's Amy here with a card that focuses on flowers!  I'm like most crafters and love working with blooms.  They are perfect for any season, especially for spring time cards!

TIP:  Incorporate the contrasting borders of 12x12 paper
 
As a cardmaker, I tend to gravitate towards the 6x6 paper pads, but do love 12x12 sheets too.  I work to get more out of a sheet of paper by using the border trim that 12x12's have.  Who doesn't love polka dots?!
 
Even though the base panel has a subtle pattern to it, I decided to add a bit more texture to my card by using a stencil and light modeling paste.

I love the large print of 12x12 paper.  It makes it a snap to fussy cut shapes, like these blooms:

The center bloom has been adhered to the card using foam adhesive giving the design a bit of interest.
 
To add a bit of rustic charm to my card, I added some twine.

TIP:  By hole punching semi-circles to your card, it will help anchor twine.
 
I used a sentiment strip as a tag and threaded the twine through the top.

I think that the twine is a nice touch with the picnic basket.

    This is super adorable, Amy! I love the soft color combo of this collection, and your basket of flowers is so sweet! I really love the bit of extra texture you added to the one corner with the stencil. It’s subtle, yet really an eye catching touch!
