Birthday Basket

This little basket was made using this week's tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers.  Instead of decorating the base box with patterned paper, I used a heavy-weight patterned paper for the that took out an extra step.  For the eyelet border, I used a 1x12 piece of card stock and wrapped it around two sides and the front.  You'll need to trim off some excess.  I finished the back off with another piece measuring 1x4-3/4.

The greeting was made with the "Framed with Love" stamp set...which I've had for months and have NEVER used.  Shocking, isn't it?  Although I'm willing to bet 99% of you stampers out there have some stamp sets you've never used.  So, my challenge to you is to go pick one of those sets out and stamp something!

Here's what I used:

Framed with Love
Vintage Labels (Happy Birthday)

Parisian Breeze DSP (Retired...but you could also use "To the Nines" specialty paper because it's also heavy weight)
     4-3/4x7-3/4 Basket Base
     7/8x11 Handle
Chocolate Chip Card Stock
     1x12 and 1x4-3/4 Eyelet Trim Border

Whisper White CS for the Greeting
Baja Breeze (Retired) for the Scallop Oval behind the Greeting

Baja Breeze Classic Stamp Pad (Retired)
Chocolate Chip Classic Stamp Pad

White Taffeta Ribbon
