My Project Today using Fanfare
Today I am sharing a filigree shaped card, handmade flowers and a little basket that I created using dies from July Die of the Month.
To created a shaped card I used the outline die (here is a link to Becca Feeken's video showing how to die cut a filigree shaped card base ---> CLICK). Next I die cut twice a decorative frame, then I offset the layers to create a shadow and I placed it on my card base on 3D adhesive to add dimension to the card.
To created flowers, both on the card and the little bouquet, I die cut them from white card stock, ink them using Distress inks and wet them a bit before shaping them with a embossing tool.
Here is a basket that I created with the outline die. Below I added some step by step pictures showing how I put it together.
I placed the die cut in a middle of my scoring board and scored at 5-1/4'' and 6-3/4''.
Then I turned the die cut around, placed it in a middle of my scoring board (6''), and scored at 5-3/8'' and 6-5/8''.
Than I cut along those scored lines up to where these lines meet with the other vertical lines.
Then I folded the sides, but only up when they met in a middle, and glued them. The basked has a shape of the bowl.
