Stamping on the Embossing Folder

Do you see how the little butterflies look like they are behind the flowers?  It is actually quite simple to achieve this look.  Your first step is to stamp directly onto the embossing folder, on the flat side, not the raised part.  Carefully close the folder around your paper and run through the Big Shot.  Ta-da!  The butterflies (or whatever you stamp) are now behind the embossed image.

I thought this card needed a little more color, so I used sponge daubers to add ink to the flowers and stems.  Then I added some pearls to the centers of the flowers.
