I decied to play around with the newest embossing folder from the Summer Mini catalog....Flower Garden.
It is a vertical embossed image, so I used a strip of cardstock and just emossed that strip. I the used the vanilla ink pad and carefully swiped it across the embossed image being careful not to press too hard since I just wanted to ink the embossed image. This card is the basic sketch as my daughter, Christine's card that I did the other day, using the border punch down the sides of the stamped image. I used Melon Mambo as the card base, then I picked through my card stock scraps using white and old olive. I stamped the hello from the Swirls & Curls verses (Level 1) from the summer mini in Old olive ink, punched it with the large oval punch, then a scrap of old olive for the scallop oval punch and for the decorative label punch I used a scrap of Melon Mambo. I sponged some Melon Mambo ink on the decorative label piece to give it some dimension and used dimensionals to pop it up from the card.
