A Berry Beautiful Day For A Picnic!

The yummy ripe red strawberries that adorn the picnic basket are from Impression Obsession's Strawberry Die Set
I have used the Woven embossing folder which gives the basket great detail and depth. Pan Pastels were sponged into the groves for definition. 

The picnic basket measures about 5 1/2" in length, 3 3/4" wide and 3 1/2" tall. There are several tutorials out there for making these baskets. I used this one from Stempeleinmaleins and tweaked it a little.
The handles are moveable and the lid also lifts! 
This makes for a perfect functional basket for holding cards or special treats!

The beautiful blossoms on the backside of the picnic basket are also part of the same IO Strawberry die set. I added a little color to the center of the flowers using Copics.

The simple card fronts were made using the cut-a-parts and papers from Authentiques-Cheerful Paper collection.

For the inside of the cards I have used stamps from the Farm Fresh Cling Set.

Thanks for looking!
