Butterfly and Floral Basket


In the current issue of Rubber Stamp Madness in the Product Spotlight section you will see a wonderful article about Cheery Lynn Designs.  This basket is in the article and many people have asked what dies I used to create it.  I began with the largest of the XL Scalloped Coved Rectangle Nesting dies for the basket shape.  I die cut 4 pieces of kraft card stock as well as 2 pieces of chipboard.  I embossed the Kraft paper using my Daisy Garden XL embossing plate, then sandwiched the chipboard between the Kraft paper.  This makes the basket quite sturdy.  To the front panel, I added Polynesian Sails Oval.  To create the oval panel in the center of the Polynesian die, I traced the fallout then cut it just a bit larger.  I embossed this piece with my Diamonds and Starburst XL embossing plate. 

 
Next came the flowers, these are a mix up of Miniature Rose, Medium Rose, Judy's Blooms and Cherry Blossoms.  I added leaves created with Large Dimensional Leaves 2  and Fanciful Flourish.  The last addition was the butterfly from the Exotic Butterflies Small #2 set and it's matching Small #2 Angel Wing.  Finished size is 7 1/4" x 5 5/8".
