Today I'm sharing a set of cards and a cute little basket that you may have seen recently in Papercraft Inspirations. My brief was to create something cheery and springlike with a focus on large 3D daffodils (eek!) Luckily Sizzix came to my rescue with their fabulous Daffodil die (you can find it here on the Sizzix UK website) here's what I came up with...
I used an embossing tool to add texture to the petals before assembling and I actually cut down the centres by about half as they were a little bit *too* 3D for me and I wanted them to look more like the daffodils that grow in the forest near my home, they have smaller centres and bigger petals that the ones shown on the Sizzix packaging - the centres I feathered slightly with scissors to soften the look. The sentiments stamps used throughout are my own set available on my website)
here on the Papercraft Inspirations blog!
I needed a 3D project to finish this set off and immediately thought of this easter basket (the template can be found inside the magazine - it's still available as a back issue or to download on your iPad)
I had lots of fun putting this set together, I hope you like it!
Thank you for dropping by today
