Weekly Blind Challenge - Karen Burniston's Woven Basket Box Card Pop-Up!

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! Every week, I try to do a "blind" card making challenge. What's that? Well, I close my eyes and randomly pick a Karen Burniston pop-up die. Then I also do the same with the animal/character dies as well. I can add any other dies I want but the two dies I pick have to be used. My picks this week were the Woven Basket Box Card Pop-Up and the Winter Animals


At first, I thought about doing a winter card, but it's so hot here in southern Ontario, Canada that I decided to do a forest themed basket. 

I started by die cutting the basket pieces from a kraft cardstock and a patterned paper from Echo Park called Let's Go Camping. I glued everything together using Lineco Neutral pH adhesive in my fine tip bottle to create my basket. Karen Burniston has wonderful assembly videos and you can see the video for the Woven Basket by clicking here. I die cut the grass pieces (which come with the Woven Basket die set) using a green cardstock I had in my scrap. I die cut three grass pieces and then glued them into my basket.

I then started to create the trees for my basket. I used the new trees in the Tree Add-On die set that just came out. This is an add-on die set for the Fancy Label Accordion die set. I also used the Spruce trees from the Evergreen Pivot Panel die set. I die cut the trees from two different green cardstocks and then used Distress Oxide Ink in Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness to give the trees some dimension.

I then began to color my bears and hedgehogs! I die cut these from smooth white cardstock (heavy weight 110lb) and colored them in with Copic markers. 

Once I had all my pieces together, I began adding everything to my basket. I die cut two small ovals using the extra pieces that come with the Lorna Label die set, one in red and one in white cardstock. I used the new Birthday/Belated stamp set from Karen Burnsiton to stamp a Happy Birthday sentiment for the front of my basket. I glued the white oval on to the back for a place to sign the basket. 

I was pleasantly surprised how well this came together! Have a go at my Weekly Blind Challenge! It's fun and it gets your creative juices flowing when you're in a stump!
