Stamp your image on card stock already cut to the correct size.  Use the Big Shot to punch out the Scallop Circle.  Place the negative image (see example below) over the pre-stamped image.  Apply ink over the stamped image-darker on the outside edge, lighter in the middle.  Remove the negative image, and use the sponge to apply color to the border of the card stock if desired (you can either use the same color ink used on the stamped image or a contrasting color).
