Do you LOVE that new Flower Garden Embossing Folder !!?

I used the Fabulous Florets MDS download and My Digital Studio to create the floral focal point on this card, but you can also create a similar result with the Fabulous Florets stamp set.  ALL From the Summer Mini catalog.

My 2nd sample is a quick little Easter Basket featuring the FANCY FAVOR DIE and the Big Shot and decorated with trim from the BEYOND THE GARDEN DSP pack and those cool new images from the TRIPLE LAYER BLOSSOM PUNCH!

Mix and match layers from the 2 new punches: Doily Triple Layer Punch & Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch!

My 3rd sample features the STRENGTH & HOPE stamp set and MDS download for that set.. I combined the 2 into this card.

I printed the text from this set using My Digital Studio onto Stampin' Up! Cardstock Vellum on my laser printer, and overlayed it on top of paper from the BEYOND THE GARDEN DSP pack in the Summer mini.
