Another one of my World Cardmaking Day challenge was to create packaging for an upcoming Holiday. I chose Halloween and pulled out the Berry Basket Bigz L Die. I like how it looks paired with the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper, which happened to fit with another one of my challenges, which was to use our favorite DSP. This one is my current favorite. The patterns are all really cool and modern and offer a grown-up take on Halloween, which I appreciate.
I used the Project Life Seasonal Snapshots 2015 stamp set (can't keep this one away) for the front and also to stamp two bats to add to the basket handle. I punched two circles out of the polka dot paper and used the googly eyes we used to carry a year or two ago. To create the scalloping on the handle, I simply die-cut the scallop border twice and lined up the pattern when gluing them down on a larger strip of Basic Black cardstock. I used the Fringe Scissors to add straw inside the basket.
The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch. I handcut the center of a Spiderweb Doily and matted the stamped image with it. I lined up the back of the doily with a piece of Tangelo Twist cardstock punched with the 2" Circle Punch. At the bottom, I used the openings in the basket to thread a piece of Tangelo Twist Satin Ribbon (now retired, but available while supplies last in the Clearance Rack of SU!'s online store) and tied it in a bow. The remaining of my punched gold glimmer stars were added with the Precision Glue to the sentiment block.
Silver Cording Trim was wrapped around the handle and tied in each corners of the basket.
