Basket Bouquet

Hello once again. I have card to share using die cuts alone – my Junior was getting a true workout for this card:

all that shiny gold……

I used Honey Bee Stamps ‘Spring Bouquet’ die set – and my goodness there are loads of dies in this set. I made the mistake of die-cutting them all out without separating them – and realised – too late – that some of those dies have other dies within them! Doh! So – a die-cut within a die-cut……

I therefore separated them all and die cut them again in some Heffy Doodle card stock in an aqua and pink colour. These two colours of card stock are the ones I have been saving. You know what I mean – we save them and save them – and never actually use them! I’m sure I’ve had these for over a year……………….so – out they came as they matched the colours perfectly for one of the challenges.

The basket was cut out of a paper which had the wood-grain on it – I think it’s Stampin Up but not sure, and the background is a Reverse Confetti die. The centre of the flowers were die cut then gold heat embossed – now that was tricky on those small little blighters!

I haven’t added a sentiment yet – I just wanted to put this card together – no particular reason other than to create a card inspired by several challenges. When I know who I want to send it to and for what reason – then of course a sentiment will be added………….although sometimes I just put one inside the card instead of on the front.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Color Throwdown pink, aqua, gold, white
