Card Samples


Hiya sistahs, happy Thursday with Sandiebella !

Today Sandiebella teaches us how to make a  Mother’s Day/Spring Baskets


Gingham paper
Scoring board and bone folder
Dies – Scalloped circle, stitched circle and bow
How to (for each basket):
Stamp the Mini Frenchie with the flowers on to white card, colour, and cut out using a 1.75″ stitched circle die. Cut a 2″ scalloped circle to mat the image onto.
For each basket cut:
One piece of coloured card measuring 5.5″ x 6″ for the basket, and one piece measuring 5/8″ x 8.5″ to make the handle.
One piece of gingham paper measuring 6″ x 6″

Score the 5.5″ x 6″ piece of card at 1.75″ on all four sides.

On the 6″ side, cut on each of the score lines up to the intersecting score line – on both sides.

Fold and burnish the score lines.

Fold up the centre section and then fold in the outer sections as shown. Staple in place.

Repeat on both sides.

Place the corner of the 6″ gingham paper into the 5″ groove on the scoring board. Ensuring the opposite end is also in the 5″ groove, score at 4″ and 6″.

Flip the paper over to the back side, place along the 5″ groove again and score at 2.25″ and 7.75″

Turn the paper so the score lines are horizontal and, using a ruler as a guide, score in between the 2 centre score lines at 3.75″ and 6.25″

From the centre score lines, mark with a pencil at 1″ each side of the lines, as shown.

Cut from the 1″ pencil mark, up to where the score lines meet. Repeat for all 4 pencil marks.
Apply adhesive to the underside of the triangular tabs and adhere down.

Apply adhesive to the underside of the outer triangular tabs and adhere down.

Turn the paper face forward and curl up the edges of the outer sections.

Apply a strip of double sided tape the underside of centre section.

Remove the tape backing and push the gingham insert into the basket.

Use glue dots to adhere the sides of the gingham insert to the basket, then fold down the long edges over the basket.

To create the handle, curl the 5/8″ x 8.5″ piece of card through your fingers. Apply adhesive to approx. 1″ of each end, then adhere outside the basket on each side.

Apply foam tape to the back of the image panels and adhere over the handle.

Cover the last “E” of BEE on the Tiny Townie Busy Bee before inking it up then stamp onto white card. Cut out using the same die as for the Frenchie, and also layer onto a scalloped circle. Adhere to the other side of the basket using foam tape.

Cut a bow from the gingham paper and adhere above the sentiment.

Fill the baskets with candy, a small gift, or cookies. A perfect gift for Mother’s Day and many more occasions.
