It's time again for the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This month's theme is "TREE." As Easter is right around the corner, I chose to make an Easter card -- using the Woven Basket as well as the Tree Pop-Up. Before I added the leaves to the tree, I sponged them with a darker green distress ink while they were still in the die. It gives some definition to each leaf this way. Once the leaves were glued to the tree, I mounted the entire tree onto a piece of heavyweight acetate to make sure it would stand tall and not tip over. The acetate is long enough that it goes to the bottom of the basket.
I filled the basket with some Spring Animals as well as tulips from the Garden Charms. The sentiment on the front is from the Easter Charms. I mounted it on a Crosshatch Oval die cut.
One feature of the Woven Basket that I really like is that, even though it's a 3-dimensional card, it folds flat for mailing.
This die is one of my favorite Karen Burniston dies. I hope you like it as well.
