Hello, It is Saturday, and time for the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Sue is our wonderful hostess and she chose the word Basket for us. At first, I was stumped and then I decided to have a look around my Cameo Design shop and it certainly did the trick. I saw this basket and thought…I don’t need a fancy cutter to make this simple basket shape all I need is the right kind of paper, low and behold I had the perfect piece in my stash! This couldn’t be any easier and look I even broke out two brads from my stash of hundreds. LOL
Here is a close-up!
I am playing along with the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes Birthday Challenge as well.
Card Details: The wine bottle (is actually a champagne bottle) and glasses are from Paper Roses. The coaster die that is supposed to be a blanket is from the Greetery, I hope it’s evident. The sentiment is heat embossed and from MFT and the set is called-Spirited Sentiments. The tiny dots of gold are cut from a very small Spellbinders die in the Noel set and normally are used for Holly. I thought the card needed something extra. I also used a wooden script stamp to make the wine bottle label.
You must run on over to JUGS as the team did an INCREDIBLE job this week, we also have a brand new guest starting who happens to be a friend of mine from Color Hues. Welcome, Julie Beech! I am just so happy you are designing with us this month!
Take care, Nanc’

This is fabulous. So creative to put it together from all those different supplies.
I came across some brads recently – why have I not been using them??

So you didn’t use the Cameo? That basket is GREAT! And its contents too! Your details like the bottle label are so clever! Love this card!

You have the right idea with this basket card. It will be a lot more fun than cake.

You are so inventive Nancy , your picnic basket is perfect for an evening’s alfresco concert perhaps. 🙂

Love the way you think! Fabulous wine basket, who wouldn’t choose this over cake!

Brilliant! Given the last few days (weeks, months…) I need a basket of wine (and maybe more than just one bottle!).

It looks like we have a couple of basket designers in the group, Nancy. You are right. The paper made all the difference in your design. Perfect picnic basket to carry a celebratory bottle of wine.

Super basket and nice diversion with the wine. I’m in for a piucnic with you Nancy.

Nothing like a picnic complete with a bottle of wine! Such a fun card!

A brilliant idea how to create a basket without having the right die. Great card! Thank you for joining our HLS Birthday challenge. This is an amazing inspiration
