Basket Full of Birthday Wishes!

Hi everyone, Happy Monday!

We have had a snowy weekend and start to the week so it gave me a bit of bonus time in my craft room.  I am having so much fun playing with my JustRite stuff I just had to make another project.

The challenge this time around for JustRite is Anything Goes and we are asked to pick our favorite JustRite stamp set and put it to use : )  Well, I agree with everyone, it really is hard to pick just one as I have sooo many favorites and they just keep making more and more gorgeous sets.   So, here is a project I made using my current favorite set.

I decided to use the largest label die to make a basket so I simply cut it twice and made a U-shaped piece of paper to attach the 2 sides together and finish it off with a handle.  I also decided to make a double stair side stepped card for the basket to sit on.

To make the base for the card, I cut a piece of card stock 7 inches wide x 8.5 inches tall.  I then marked score lines across the width at 7/8″, 1 3/4″, 3″, 4 1/4″ and 6 3/8″ and then measured in 1 1/4 inches from each side.  Join the top and bottom score marks along this 1 1/4 ” line to identify the cut lines and simply use a straight edge and a good craft knife to cut the line.  I score everything first so I have a guide to go by.  After I had my cardstock scored and cut, I took my biggest die and centered it over my cardstock and cut it out to give the base a different shape.  Finally, I was not happy with the way my little basket sat on the steps so I made a little triangle box that sat in the second step so that my basket had a flat surface to sit on.
