Tulip Basket

Hero Arts Tulip Basket
One of my New Year resolutions is to use what I have not.....and probably save a tree!  I am starting with the Tulip Basket above.  I would think it is at least 5 years old.  Because it is discontinued, I have it linked to the stamp for sale on EBay and it searches by best price and shipping first.  ;-)

STAMPED IMAGE:
  1. Stamped on CS with Rich Cocoa ink, painted with Twinkling H2O's, embossed form the back, mounted on card front with 1/8" 3D pop dots.  Applied Stickles glitter glue for embellishment.
CARD FRONT and Envelope:
  1. Die cut made with Spellbinders Exquisite Labels Eleven. 
  2. Created gold and white background by using a Waxed Paper Resist technique years ago.  I used regular white card stock.  Here is a tutorial using glossy, but the technique is the same.  I used the die as a stencil to get the BG behind the tulip basket.  I used the corners of the die to get the heart inserts from the left over resist card stock.
  3. These were mounted on olive green card stock from my stash.
  4. I lost the envelope for the pink embellishments.  :-( If anyone knows who makes them, let me know and I will post. Bow is ribbon from Michael's.
I did the envelope and the inside using the second image and left over resist too.  Thanks for stopping by to look and share!!  Can't believe I almost have another card done. ;-)

how lovely with the matching envy, Shirley! The decorative edges look just like a basket - so pretty with the lavish Spring colors and beautiful contrast of green and white. All the good images end up retired, don't they? Pure elegance. hugs, de
