Product Spotlight & Secret Garden

Hi There. I have Two cards today - One is using the Product Spotlight item 'Borders Scoring Plate' and the other is a card I made using the Secret Garden Bundle, Pursuit of Happiness Stamp Set and Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder.
Secret Garden Card - I love this bundle and think it pairs so well with this Embossing Folder. I built the centre flower up in three layers - the large flower is adhered flat to the card and the two five petal flowers are each mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals. I embossed the leaves with Gumball Green Embossing Powder onto Gumball Green Card Stock. Aren't those little 4 petal flowers so cute!! They're from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack which I get heaps of use out of. They're great for layering as well.
Style Tips:
** Emboss your card with Embossing Folder first before adhering anything down - I know that sounds simple but it is easy to get carried away with the flowers and then realising you haven't dry embossed!!
** Only use adherent to the middle of the large flower - this makes it easier to lay the leaves underneath, OR, adhere leaves first, then place flowers on the top. 
** For easier adhering, use the pen tip end of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Pg 177 Annual Cat') to stick Itty Bitty Flowers down. This is a great strong glue and the dual tips make it perfect for nearly all jobs. .
Swallowtail Butterfly Card - Here's the Card I made using the Borders Scoring Plate which I teamed up with the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folders (set of 2 in the Mini Catalogue). The Needlepoint Border is the solid row of scallops with the dashes on top. I heat embossed the Swallowtail Butterfly with Pool Party Embossing Powder (both also from Mini). The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and cut out with the matching Bitty Banners Framelits.
