Hello my creative friends, Today I have a card I created in honor of all those men and women gave their lives for our freedom. My card is a twisted easel with Spellbinders Petite Picot Oval and a basket full of Susan's Garden Club Lily of the Valley from her Spring Floral release. I wove a small basket from some leftover chair caning that I had and used a small flag removed from a stick and folded to fit basket rim. S usan's Lily of the Valley was cut 5 times shaped and assembled using Susan's Specialty Cardstock. Leaves were cut from green cardstock 5 times giving you 10 leaves. They were shaded and shaped using Susan's Deluxe Tool Set. Card base was 6" X 6" with front panel scored diagonally fold on score line into mountain fold. Patterned paper was cut 5-3/4" square adhered to inside of card and card front using clear double sided adhesive. On front panel I made sure to put adhesive on each side of diagonal score line as close as possible
