Basket of a Spring Bouquet


Hello my crafty friends!

Spring is in the air finally.  Today I have a card I created of a basket full of spring flowers.  Forget Me Nots from Susan's latest release with Spellbinders Through the Garden Gate along with Susan's Garden Lilac, Lily of the Valley and I created on my own Grape Hyacinth using floral wire, tape and colored Styrofoam balls.

Card is 5" X 7" base created from 110# cardstock.  Green Cardstock was cut 4-3/4" X 6-3/4" attached to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Patterned paper (The Paper Studio - Blanc Boutique was used here) cut 4-1/2" X 6-1/2" adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

From Susan's Garden S6-181 Garden Basket & Glads basket was cut twice from brown cardstock cut handle off then attaching together using Bearly Art Glue embossed using basket weave embossing folder by Darice then shaded with brown ink. Basket was attached to card front using Bearly Art Glue applied around both sides and bottom with pop dots in lower center back.

Grape Hyacinth was created using floral wire, tape, Kids Choice Glue and colored foam beads see photos below.

Supplies - note wire wrapped using floral tape built up on 1 end.

Rolled in Purple Foam Beads 

3 stems of Forget Me Nots S2-340 from Susan's newest release Through the Garden Gate were created using Susan's Garden Specialty Paper, colored with PanPastels and shaped using Susan's Garden Deluxe Tool Kit.  Susan will have YouTube video shortly for creating these flowers.
