For my card I used a Basic Black card base with an embossed layer of Thick Whisper White. 
I cut my circle from the embossed layer before I embossed. It is important to do it before you emboss with the folder, otherwise you will lose the gorgeous texture you have just created.
The embossed layer has added depth by adding dimensionals underneath to lift it up and away from the Basket image.

The black framing the circle has been cut using the largest layering circle and then using my paper snips, I cut around the outside edge of the negative following the mark left by the die.

I stamped the basket onto a scrap piece of whisper white and then coloured it using the Stampin' Blends that are available now in the Occasions catalogue on pages 30 and 31.

The Stampin' Blends colours that I used are as follows:

Once finished I stamped the butterflies and repeated the process of colouring and fussy cutting. I also added clear Wink of Stella to the butterflies, just to make them shimmer and shine in the light.
The pretty little butterflies are held in place with glue dots.

I finished my card by grouping some pretty rhinestones down the left side of the card, this helped bring some balance and symmetry back.  

I do hope you have enjoyed this project today.

  1. Wow, fabulous card, love the layout and beautifully coloured basket of flowers, thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creativity.

  2. Thank you for this idea! I loved how you treated the basket. So many nice designs have required that it be fussy cut and I didn't want to do that. This gives the texture and dimension without the cutting!
