CROPSTOP GUEST DESIGNER

Hello There Crafty Friends,
I am so excited and honored! I was asked to be a Guest Designer for...
CropStop
This is my first post, I will be back on the 10th with another.

Here's the card that I made...
...Here's what I used to make it...
 Sizzix BIGkick Machine by Vintaj
Couture Creations Embossing Folder 'Smooch' - Won from CropStop
Darice Embossing Essentials Dies 'Doily'
Darice Embossing Essentials Dies 'Tag'
Darice Embossing Essentials Dies 'Flower Basket'
Prima Marketing Comfort Craft Distressing Tool
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tea Dye'
Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Tweezers
Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors
Scotch Foam Mounting Tape
Scor-Tape (Double Sided)
Darice Hemp Cord 'Natural'
Sheer Ombré  Ribbon 'Gold/Ivory' - Won from CropStop
Bow Making Tool

...Here's how I made it..
I embossed a piece of marbled yellow cardstock using Couture Creations Embossing Folder 'Smooch'. Then I die cut the doily, basket and tag with the same cardstock. Next I die cut the basket again using brown cardstock - saving pieces to use on the yellow basket. I then die cut and embossed the flowers with red/orange/light yellow/dark yellow cardstock. Then I die cut and embossed the leaves with a dark green cardstock. Next I made the card base with white cardstock. Using the distressing tool I went around the card, lightly on the fold edge. Then around the embossed paper. Then I used the distress ink pad on the edges of the card, on the embossed paper, doily, basket and tag. I applied Scor-Tape to the back of the embossed paper and attached it to the card. Next I tied a piece of hemp cord onto the tag. Then I applied Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to the back of the doily, added the tag behind it and attached it to the card. Next I applied clear glue to the back of the basket and attached it to the center of the doily. Using tweezers, I glued the cut out pieces from the brown basket into the marbled yellow basket. I cut the brown handle out, then glued it onto the marbled yellow basket handle. Next I glued the flower pieces together. Then used Scor-Tape to attach the center flower and used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to attach the other two flowers. Using my bow making tool, I made a bow with the Sheer Ombré - Ribbon and glued it onto the side of the basket.
