Penny Black Basket of Pansies






Today's card was created using a stamp from the Penny Black "Flower Gallery" stamp set.  I purchased this from Joans Gardens.  The image was colored using Copic markers then cut out.  The card stock color is lovely lavender.  I used the Martha Stewart pansy punch, also from Joans Gardens,  because it goes so well with the stamped image.  After punching the border I used a long rectangle Nestability to emboss  a frame around the punched border.  A small piece of white cs was embossed with the Cuttlebug Dotted swiss embossing folder and add in the center.  The basket of pansies was attached with dimensional tape .  The verse (from MTME) was stamped and cut out with a Nestability then sponged before removing from the die.  This card is 5x7 inches so the background had to be embossed twice with the cuttlebug Dotted Swiss embossing folder.  I embossed one half of it then the other side.  Small pearls were added to complete the card.
