Basket Weave Part One... The Large Basket with Tutorial

With the Sale A Bration 2nd release comes the new Basket Weave dynamic embossing folder... which is just fabulous... perfect excuse for re-producing a couple of projects from a few years back...

So first up... my Large Easter Basket... for which you will find the tutorial by clicking here... 
Bear in mind that this is a pretty large basket... standing at over 3" tall (plus handle)... over 5" wide and 2" deep.... 

So room for lots of chocolates for someone special... or you can always add some Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie if you want to be tighter with your chocolate! I think it would fit 8ish Creme Eggs as a guide... you can see how lost my couple are!
Very simply decorated... as it was a last minute class add-on! As it did just have to be done when I saw the embossing folder... 

Embossing folder inked with Soft Suede before embossing my Crumb Cake cardstock... which completely brings that basket weave to life!

Flowers from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit... plus a Tutti Frutti sequin... with a die-cut Stitched Shapes circle with silver embossed greeting... which is from the now long retired Easter Blossoms stamp set out of my stash... 

But back to the Basket Weave embossing folder... and some more information for you... as well as a product video link at the end of this post...

(1) It can be earnt for free... along with its co-ordinating stamp set, Blossoming Basket (available in both wood and clear  mount)... with a £90 order... from now until the end of March during the Sale A Bration promotion
Blossoming Basket Clear-Mount Bundle
(2) It is a Dynamic embossing folder... ie a thick one! With just one cutting plate required in your plate sandwich... This gives a more pronounced 3D effect than the standard ones...

(3) The embossing folder will become readily available on its own with the new 2018-19 Annual catalogue come 1st June... but you will have to pay for it then... and can you wait? Easter will be over!
