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.
