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.

Susan'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 without going over score line.  Add the patterned paper work the diagonal fold burnishing it well.

The oval was the largest in the Petite Picot Oval set cut from white cardstock and adhered to lower half of card front using clear double sided adhesive.

Basket was adhered to oval using Kids Choice Glue holding it until sets up.  Lily of the Valley leaves were added to basket using Kids Choice Glue then the Lily of the Valley Stems.  Lady bug was added.

For the easel stop on inside sentiment was stamped on white card stock using black Momento ink  then die cut.  From red cardstock next size large die was cut to make a mat for sentiment.  Dimensional tape was used to adhere to inside of card.
