ODBD January Release Reminder

Good morning!

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs January Release, here is the project I created using the new Bountiful Basket die, Whimsical Flowers Paper Collection and some other ODBD favorites, Pretty Posies, Fancy Foliage, Asters and Leaves, Bitty Blossoms, Trois Jolies Papillons, Trois Papillons Dies and Butterfly & Bugs stamp set, Butterfly & bugs die. For more inspiration using the January Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.

I cut the basket from white and cut the insets from the Whimsical Flowers paper and then glued the basket together.  I punched holes for the handles and used brads to attach them so that they are free to move back and forth.
I filled the basket with iridescent cello shreds and then started making my flowers and leaves.  Each flower in the basket has a bit of Stickles on the petals and Prills in the centers.  My butterflies are stuck in with Acetate and I've attached some rhinestone flourishes for trails.  I used florist sticks cut in half to stick my flowers in the cello.

I also made a card using the Z Fold from ODBD.  I stamped A Happy Hello flowers all over 3 panels of glossy card stock using VersaMark and then used clear powder to heat emboss to create a resist.  I then sponged Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violets Distress Ink onto the panels.

I Used the Leafy Edged Border die to cut the 2 panels that fold out and then cut my resist panels to match.  I also cut the decorative Leafy Border from white to match the curves.

I used the Vintage Labels to cut out the sentiment after I had stamped the same flower design on it with purple and then the sentiment in black. The small God Bless was cut with the Vintage Labels as well.

I added a pocket inside gluing just the bottom and the straight side of the Decorative Corner die cut.  You could put a note or a gift card, whatever you'd like in the pocket.
That's it, done!

Oh, Robin, this is an amazing basket that thrills me to see all the details! All the flowers are beautiful, and I love the butterflies fluttering around with the rhinestone trails. What a special gift this will be for someone. And I love the beautiful card you've made with gorgeous colors! Stunning with the border dies. Hugs!
