Raspberries!!! GYDOFeb142011

Hello Saturday!

If you are looking for my JUGS post, scroll down or click HERE.

Today I have a really fun creation that I absolutely LOVE!!  I’ve been working on this idea for awhile, and it finally came together!  Check out this Inspiration Challenge photo over at the Verve forum.  See that heart full of goodies?  I thought, “that’s it…mix my raspberries with yogurt covered raisins in the basket,” (I know, my mind works in crazy ways)!!  You never know what will trigger the creative genius inside each of us 😉  Hehe!

Here it is…

Isn’t it cute?!  Those raspberries were a little tedious, but I whipped them out while watching American Idol!  I wanted to use a raspberry stamp on the card, but couldn’t find the perfect one.  I was tickled pink when I found this digital paper at My Time Made Easy!!

To make the raspberries, punch flowers using SU!’s 5-Petal Flower Punch, emboss them using CB Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  Punch one hole in the tip of each leaf.  Use your bone folder to “roll” the petals so they take a rounded shape.  Using a needle and embroidery floss, thread together the leaves.  Punch a top with a small flower punch.  Punch two small holes toward the center.  Thread the floss through the holes, gather floss tightly, and tie.

For the basket, I used my Cricut Cupcake Wrappers Cartridge.  With the help of the Cricut Design Studio, I re-sized the wrappers to my desired size.  Once cut and assembled, I cut a bottom and glued it in.  The handle is 3/16″ wide and 11″ long.  It is glued between basket layers.

Have a fun weekend!
