One of the new products offered in the second Sale-abration release is the Blossoming Basket Bundle. This bundle comes with both the Blossoming Basket stamp set and Basket Weave embossing folder and is an excellent deal since it is FREE with a qualifying purchase of $100 pre-tax and shipping.
The basket weave embossing folder is one of our dynamic embossing folders, which means it creates an extra deep image. It almost looks like woven paper.
I have to say the basket overflowing with flowers is so pretty when you color it in. I used my Stampin Blends to color in both the basket and the flowers. The Stampin Blends are our new alcohol markers. The shading and depth they give you when coloring in an image create such a lovely effect.
For this card, I added a second layer of the flowers to add dimension to the basket. The flowers are glued down using our dimensionals. There is no die for the basket image. I did hand cut it, which wasn’t too difficult. I also used the new shimmer ribbon in the Sale-abration catalog, which matches our Calypso Coral markers perfectly.
