All of the card edgers are terrific and I use them frequently for frames, backgrounds and for borders. For this card, I first punched the lower edge of a 5.5 x 4.25 ivory card, but left a little on each side to keep the edge attached. I repeated this on a separate strip of ivory. The flower border of the edger was inked with the peach ink and I used the marker to dot the flower centers, then stamped it above the punched border. I punched the same border on two strips of peach and interlaced it with the ivory borders. I trimmed the top of the flower border on the extra strip before attaching it to the card.

The butterfly was also stamped on ivory and cut out. A little glitter glue was dotted on. The upper peach panel was spritzed with bleach before the greeting was stamped with the redwood ink.
