I’ve been using the Basket Bunch Bundle a lot lately. And why not? It’s adorable and versatile. For today’s card, Thanks a Bunch of Carrots, I paired the bundle with Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP.) It’s a clean and simple card, but still fun.

Really simple thank you card made with the Basket Bunch Bundle and Party Animal DSP by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Pumpkin Pie CS to 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″
  • Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS to 2″ x 3-1/4″
  • NOTE: Regarding the Whisper White CS pieces used on this card, you can use the thick CS for everything OR you can use thick CS just for the card base and regular CS for everything else.

Stamped with the Basket Bunch stamp set:

  • 7 carrots in Basic Black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • sentiment in Basic Black ink onto the 2″ x 3-1/4″ Whisper White CS, about 1/2″ from the bottom

Colored in with Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • carrots in Pumpkin Pie

Die cut using the Basket Builder Framelits:

  • the 7 carrots

Assembled the card:

  • carrots glued together in a bunch. I started with the front most carrot and built the bunch from front to back (or top to bottom.)
  • separated about 5 strands from a piece of Emerald Envy Solid Baker’s Twine, then used about it to wrap around the top of the bunch of carrots and tie in a knot. You could use a full piece of the twine, and just not it wrap around as many times.
  • the tied bunch of carrots glued onto the Whisper White CS above the sentiment
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the Party Animal DSP
  • DSP glued onto the Pumpkin Pie CS
  • Pumpkin Pie CS glued onto the front of the Whisper White card base – not centered, to add interest

Here’s a tip for mailing:

Whenever I mail a card with something that causes a noticeable lump in the envelope, I insert an extra piece of card stock in the envelope over the front of the card. It’s amazing how much this helps!

I don’t usually do this if it’s just Stampin’ Dimensionals, because they’re pretty soft. But when I use pearls or buttons, or even this card with its many layers of CS where the carrots are, that extra piece of CS in the envelope can help ensure your recipient gets the card you made, and not just a mess in a torn envelope.
