With the eucalyptus leaf stamp and Pool Party ink, stamp two columns of images on the card base right front side.

Cut the next Pool Party Cardstock layer 3-1/4" x 4-1/4"

Also cut two pieces of Basic White Cardstock - front layer 3" x 4" and inner layer 4" x 5-1/4"

Again with the Pool Party ink, stamp the greeting and plant images shown on the card front. On the inner card layer stamp two bee images in the lower right corner, then adhere that layer inside of card.

Adhere the two smaller front layers together, then raise up with Dimensionals at a slant on the card front.

Thread an 8" piece of 1/8" wide ribbon through the top  circle of the Open Leaf Trinket charm. Tie a bow, trim tails as needed. Use two glue dots to affix to card front as shown.

Add three sparkly embellishments of your choice.
