On the card base, I used the Very Vintage wheel in Baja Breeze ink, so it doesn't show up a lot in the photo. Then I stamped the flowering branch image from the Easter Blossoms set on 2x5.5" sheet in soft suede and then sponged on some soft suede ink. To add a little color, I scribled over the blossoms with a pretty in pink marker, quickly and messily, no need to stay inside the lines.
I embossed a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock with the Framed Tulip embossing folder, see below for directions. Then I heat embossed the girl with white embossing powder, then sponged around the image and over the embossed tulip edge heavily with crumb cake ink to give it some depth. I also sponged a little soft suede ink around the edge. Added a brad with ribbon tucked in it and adhered. For the sentiment, I stamped in soft suede on whisper white and then sponged on more soft suede ink.
Then my favorite part of this card... the faux flower soft! I saw this somewhere and for the life of me I can't rembemer where! (middle aged brain) Sorry, I would love to give the credit to whoever came up with this idea. I made the faux flower soft by distressing a piece of pink pirouette paper until I had accumulated a little pile of pink paper fuzz. I put tombow multi glue on the basket image and added the fuzz to give a basket of flowers. I love this so much, because it allows me to use this image for any occasion, instead of it being just for Easter cards.

And last but not least, here is the tutorial on changing the size of the Framed Tulips embossing folder.
2. Insert your cardstock all the way into the embossing folder (to the hinge). Make sure that it is centered.
4. When you open your embossing folder, one half of the cardstock will be embossed. Turn it around so that the embossed area is moved away from the hinge. (Don’t flip it over).
