February Club Project - Basket of Cards with Painted Petals

For my February stamp club I figured out how to make a strawberry basket that would fit regular size/A2 cards and showed the ladies.  This month's project included making the basket & a set of 6 cards with coordinating envelopes.
For the basket, I used a 12 x 12 sheet of pistachio pudding (or very vanilla) card stock.  The baskets were adorned with goodies from the Artisan Embellishment that pink rose!  They were also trimmed with the Sahara Sand lace from the Occasions Catalog.
 We made 2 each of 3 different cards to combine for a set of six.  We used the Pained Petals stamp set for all card and also afterward to decorate the envelopes.  Cardstock & ink colours were:  pistachio pudding, blackberry bliss, blushing bride and pool party.  We also used staz on black to stamp the greetings.

Below are all 3 cards:

It was a fun evening & we all felt like artists by the end of it!!:)

Love those little gold bullclips that came with the kit!  Confession, I've been hoarding them!

And here are some alternate projects that can be made with the kit:

Plus throughout February here are a few other variations I've made with the kit...sorry for the darkness of the photo's...made them in evenings and gave way in the next day so only got a picture at night...


And I still have lots of goodies left over in the kit to continue to make projects...been thinking of of the non-valentine possibilities!:)
