Sweet Threads Gift Caddy

Dawn Rapsas gave the designers of the Big Shot Round Up session of UStamp with Dawn and Friends the challenge of using every single current Big Shot product.  We have been having fun pulling out older favorites and combining them with new items from the Spring Catalog.
For my project, I chose the older Sweet Buttons embosslit and Buttons #5 sizzlit to go with the new Needlepoint Border embossing folder, Sweet Threads Simply Sent Kit and the Pop 'n Cuts Card Base to make a sewing themed gift caddy.   To continue the sewing theme, I filled the caddy with  fabric, ribbon and buttons.

The caddy is made with the Fancy Favor die and the Pop 'n Cuts base designed by Karen Burniston. The SU! Pop 'n Cuts products are so popular and the designers have really showcased just how versatile they are.  Karen is designing several exclusive projects just for the Big Shot Round Up session and several other designers have super projects with the suite as well.  To sign up for access to all the tutorials click on the link below.

Ears To You

We are FINALLY getting a little glimpse of spring today.  There are still a few stubborn bits of snow but the sun is shining so hopefully even that will be melted away by Easter Sunday.    These little bunnies another sign of spring.
The card is larger than normal (5-1/2" X 8-1/2") to accommodate the oval focal piece that is cut using the Ovals Framelits and to give plenty of writing room.  I am sending this with the basket of candy so I did not need to be concerned about it fitting in an envelope.  The striped pieces at the sides are 1"X 5-1/2".

Supplies used:  Ears to You single stamp, Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP, Melon Mambo card base (8-1/2" X 11", scored at 5-1/2"), Ovals Framelits, Fancy Favor die, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, and Pacific Point Stampin' Write Markers,  1/4" Pacific Point Stitched Grosgrain ribbon.
