Build A Blossom

Punched Flower Card

I love the new Build a Blossom Stamp set (121923) and the coordinating Blossom Petals Punch (121808).  I designed this card after seeing some similar designs at Leadership.  Each petal is stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock and then punched with the punch and then I used a bone folder to curl each petal slightly to give a dimensional look.  

I tried several different ways to assemble the flower but found that the best way was to poke a hole toward the inner part of each petal and then stack them onto an Antique Brad (117273).  Then I could spread them out nicely but secure them as well.  I actually pushed the brad right through the layer of Very Vanilla cardstock that has been embossed with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder (121809).  I love the look of this card and I made a second using a Birthday sentiment to give to a neighbor who celebrated a birthday last week.  She loved it!

Thanks for stopping by!
