Bushel Basket in a Shadow Box

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card which I didn't get chance to demo completely on Thursday -

I started by cutting die #1 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set into a piece of Milk Card. I then cut the frame from the Celebrations Shadow Box into another piece of Milk Card and glued the 2 die cuts together.  I made a frame using dies #2 and #4 from the Stitched Square Peg Board out of Milk Card and added it to my Shadow Box using Woodware Foam Tape. I matted onto another piece of Milk Card, a piece of Cinnamon Card and another piece of Milk Card.

I made up a basket using the Bushel Basket Die Set with Cinnamon & Stone Card. It's easy for you to watch one of Sue's videos on how to put the basket together rather than me try and explain it!

I added veg to my basket cut from various different coloured card using the Wooden Garden Cart Die Set.

I added a couple of pumpkins to the top left hand box.

 I cut the Garden Rake out of Stone and Cinnamon Card using the Life is a Garden Die Set and added some leaves cut from Forest Card using the Wooden Garden Cart Die Set.

The sentiment is from the Life is a Garden Die Set cut from Cinnamon Card.

Thanks for stopping by.

  13. I didn't really think I needed the gardening sets but am starting to see them as useful. Always knew they were cute.This is a darling card and I actually do know a few people who garden.
    I also decided to add the tree to my shopping list. I have a tree die so wasn't going to but after watching your demo on Hochanda, I changed my mind again.
    Have a wonderful weekend,
