Market Basket Birthday Card


A warm spring day with nothing pressing, and a delivery of the Greetery's newest.
Just couldn't wait to play with all the new goodies!

Oh, that basket! Fell in love during the release, and couldn't wait to play.

The die set gives you a choice of 3 sizes, this is the largest. I've done this treatment
several times before to simulate copper patina. Simply cut the basket from blue
green, or aqua cardstock (PTI's Hawaiian Shores), and randomly pat the die cut 
with an embossing pad. Sprinkle with copper embossing powder (Wow superfine),
and the result is aged copper patina. I gave my basket a paper lining of vellum, sort of 
mutes the stamped background.

The Tulips Botanicals allow you to color anyway you like, or simply die cut from 
colored cardstock. So many choices! Can't wait to try watercolors. Or maybe

Did you get the basket die? It sold out quickly, but the Greetery's great at
restocking. Wishing to spend the weekend with more stamps, but they'll have
to wait. Mother's Day and family and barbecue and swimming... all planned 
for this special weekend.

Happy Mother's Day!

    1. Hi Lin! Here's the thing, the Greetery does have some 3 step stamping layers, but Betsy includes a stamping guide, and has videos on You Tube. I love the look of her well thought layers to create a beautiful card! If you ever want to try any of the pieces that are called Botanicuts let me know and I'll send them to you. Love to you and trips, and Happy Mom's Day to you too!
