St. Patrick's Day Build a Basket

Top o' the mornin' to ya and HAPPY St. Patrick's Day!

The Build a Basket die set has lots of different elements and for my card today I decided to make a pot-o-gold with it for St. Patrick's Day. Keep reading to find a couple of quick tips about how I made gold coins and the handles on the pot.

I die-cut the black kettle and sponged on a little white ink around the edges. Then (tip 1) I used the bow from the die set to make the handles, brilliant huh - lol.  I cut the shamrock out of  green Glitter Tape by (tip 2) first sticking the tape to a piece of cardstock then cutting it out with the shamrock die. Then did the same thing with gold Glitter Tape and cut out a bunch of coins.

I used the new Pierced and Stitched Circle die set for the white circle and stamped the sentiment from the Shamrock Swirl clear stamps set. Then I adhered the kettle with foam tape and added a few extra coins "falling" off the side.

I added a strip of the gold Glitter Tape down the left side of a white card base.  Then stamped the Buffalo Plaid background with black ink onto green card stock and added that on top. 

The Build a Basket is really fun to work with and there are a bunch of different was to use it. I'm already thinking of a Halloween cauldron and of course there are lots of ideas for spring/Easter and just an everyday basket with many ideas for one die set!
