This card is a little different than what I normally make. I cut a piece of the dark green card stock to 5.5 by 4.25 inches. I stamped the leaf with the Always Artichoke. I then outlined the edge with the gold pen.
I then cut the Big oval and folded this piece in half. I embossed the top half and also edged that piece with gold.
Next, I cut the small oval from the white cryogen. I used a distress tool and edged this piece with Wild Honey Distress. I then stamped my Flowers. The cool thing about this stamp set is that they are peg stamps. So each leaf and flower are individual stamps. Because of this you can place them where ever you want. They are great to go around shapes and wording and also on envelopes. I used Scotch mounting tape to raise up the oval just slightly.
