Basket Weave Mom Card
A pretty metal basket bouquet in soft feminine colors is a sweet way to wish Mom a Happy Mother’s Day or to let her know how much she is appreciated any time of the year. Add your own sentiment inside. The 5” x 7” image is ready to print and waiting to bring a smile to any mom’s face. The embossed foil is inserted behind the basket cut out and tissue flowers are glued to the card. Use a craft knife to cut the basket or use your Silhouette stencil cutter. You'll find the cut file at the top of this page.
Down load and print out the image in landscape mode in your card making program using card stock. A white grid pattern may appear on the screen image but it won’t be visible when printed. If you work with Silhouette software, choose the silhouette the cut file which includes instructions.)
The finished card image measures 5" x 7". The background color Is larger than needed to insure it will bleed off the page once it’s cut. I’ve included crop lines. Note that the left vertical color edge is the fold line for the card. If you plan to add a personal printed message inside the card do it before cutting.
step 1 - With a craft knife, cut out the black shapes on the template as well as cutting the page to 10” x 7”. Use the right side crop marks as your guide. (Silhouette users have no black shapes only cut lines.)
step 4 - Use the Aleene’s glue along all the front card edges and attach a 5" x 7" piece of card stock to create a clean white page on the inside of the card. Allow the glue to dry.
Note To Silhouette Users
The cut file was created in Silhouette Designer Edition V3. If you have an earlier version you may be unable to open the file. Another option is to download the pdf template and instructions, copy the image, and trace it in your silhouette program.
