Woven Basket Teacher Card


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing another sneak peek of some of the new dies to be released by Karen Burniston next Monday 5th December. This card uses three of the new dies being released.

As the school year finishes in a few weeks down here in Australia while we have our summer holidays, I need to get a few more teacher thank you cards made, so that is what I have done for my card today.

My card uses three of the new die sets ... first up the Wide Woven Basket Box Card die which I have used with the Woven Basket Box Card die set to create my basket base. You can use these two dies either in conjunction with each other so you have the wider front and the narrower sides or just use the new wide die set if you want a bigger square shaped basket base. For my card I opted to keep my basket the same color, but you can weave a different color if you want.

To decorate my card, I used the new Bookworm die set. This die set includes that cute little bookworm and dies to create two different styles of books. I also used the Office Charms die set to die cut a few pencils.

Another of the new dies being released, is the Bam Box Pop-up ... this is going to be so much fun and you can use this to pop-up so many different things. I have used the bam box itself at the bottom of the inside of the basket so that the box automatically opens when you remove it from the envelope. I will show this in the photo below. But this die set also includes some label dies, which is what I used for the label the "Thank You" is adhered to. I just love the different shape of these labels.

Not the most exciting photo, but here you can see the two bam boxes used in opposite corners of my basket, so it "pop" open when it comes out of the envelope. Watch out for more ways on how to use this from all the Design Team in coming posts.

As you can see the card folds flat so it can be placed inside an envelope. I added the "Teacher" sentiment to the front of the card using the Ovals - Crosshatch die set.
