Our guest designer this week is Cathy. Make sure you pop on over to her blog and give her some love!
I have used the Stripes challenge at Just Add Ink and the Splatter/Sketch challenge at The Friday Mashup! for my card.
I believe the next holiday that my family celebrates is Easter, so I decided to go that route. I remember having a die a few years ago that made really cute Easter baskets, but it has since retired, so I used my Ovals Collection Framelits to do something similar. And it actually worked the FIRST time! Don't you just love it when that happens? ;)
The basket was really easy to make. I put the large scalloped oval on my magnetic plate (on top of the clear plate, of course!) and placed the third largest oval inside of it. Then I placed the top clear plate only 2/3 of the way over the two framelits. This caused it to cut only the top portion of both ovals. I then removed the inside oval, placed the clear plate over the entire scalloped oval, and ran it back through. This is how the bottom half of the basket got cut. The last step was to go in with my paper trimmer and cut off the inside flap that was hanging there and to emboss the basket. Pretty easy for a cute basket!
