ModaScrap is releasing two new frame dies, and this one, the Happy Frame XL, is the bigger of the two.  I love the idea of a paper frame, but really thought I could create a little something more with it.  I through I could create a little wall hanging basket for my daughters’ Valentines.

I pulled out the new Lace Card die, which wasn’t really intended for this use, but with a few tweaks was able to make it fit.

I die cut out the four panels for the frame out of some red textured card stock.  The top and the bottom panel got 3/4″ off of the end of it.  I folded the panel along the score lines and added some 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

I created the four sides and then assembled them into the corners, creating the frame.

I die cut out the Lace Card making certain to leave half an inch of extra along the bottom of the die cut.  I scored the bottom and then folded both the bottom and the sides of the die cut.

The bottom of the Lace die cut got 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and the sides got some more 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  I adhered one panel to the other, can created the basket.

The Lace basket got adhered to the frame, leaving a little of the basket hanging over both sides of the frame.

I wanted to add a little bit pretty to the finished frame basket, so I pulled out the new Christmas Flowers die set and die cut a bunch of pedals out of 85lb Soft Finished Cardstock in white.  I distressed the little ones with Candied Apple, Fired Brick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides.  I distressed the leaves with Lucky Clover, Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides.  Using my fingers I curled the flowers so they would be a little more life like and adhered them together with some liquid adhesive.  I added a few beads to the center of the flowers and then added the flowers to the top of the frame.
