Hello Ribbon Lovers! Kathy here. I have been impatiently waiting to share today's card with you. I've made a dimensional autumn apple basket featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon and Bo Bunny Apple Cider Cardstock. The thing that makes this card special is that I made the bushel basket of apples round! Yes, I did! Take a peek:
It's not as hard to do as you might think. I began by creating a 5x7 side fold card. I scored the card front at 2 1/2" and then folded it in, toward the card center. Glue down the top and bottom edge on the inside of the card to form a pocket.
A layer of Apple Cider green swirl paper was glued down to the card front. I then fussy cut the basket, apples and leaves, added gold brads to the bushel basket staves and layered the apples and leaves on with dimensional foam. A double layer of foam dots was added to the center of the back of the fussy cut basket. Then I wadded up some paper towels and stuck them to the foam tabs. I curved the basket by pushing the cut edges toward the center. The edges were glued, and I held them down while sort of pushing them toward the center of the basket until the glue set. Voila! Curved basket! How fun is that?
Then I just added my gorgeous Tangerine Satin Swirls Ribbon to the inside panel of the card, as well as above the bushel of apples. Here's the inside of the card.
I decorated this pocket and tag with chipboard pieces from the collection.
The tag was topped with apple green satin swiss dots ribbon and more of the tangerine swirl ribbon. I found this cute little acorn in my stash of fall embellies and secured it to the tag using gold thread.
Because the card is so dimensional, I had to put it in a box instead of an envelope. So, I made one from the matching paper in the collection.
Here's the whole ensemble.
I think this would make a nice hostess gift for all those holiday parties that are headed our way!
Thanks for stopping by!
